This is a charcoal vapor box you have to replace it .main cause of this fault is caused by over filling the fuel tank .it expands if left in the sun . stop filling at first click.

1999 6 cyl. Where Is The evap canister vent solenoid located?


The canister is located under the rear driver's side bumper, behind the rear wheel, above the exhaust pipe, next to the fuel tank. The Canister Vent Solenoid is mounted on the canister toward the rear of the car. The Canister Purge Solenoid is mounted in the front passenger side wheel-well, under the large protective plastic above the tire. The system is connected to the intake manifold on the passenger side just on the engine side of the throttle body. The service port is on the passenger side next to the A/C condenser.
Hope this helps you out

Gas leaking front passenger side of ford windstar


Have you looked under the hood? (I don't mean to sound like a wise guy.) There are two shiney metal pipes one on the front of the engine and one on the rear as you look at it from the front. They run from right to left on the engine. These are the fuel racks that feed the fuel injectors, (assuming that you have a 3 litre or larger v6 engine). These can concievably rust at the left, (passenger), end and blow gasoline out the passenger side. It is also possible that gas could be leaking anywhere on the engine and roll off the passenger side of the engine or if the fuel line on the driver's side has rusted over a cross member of the frame and possibly roll to the passenger side. Also, there is pretty good pressure on the fuel line when it is running. If there is a rust hole on the right side of the line itself, it could spray to the passenger side, hit something and drip off from there. These are just possibilities. Good luck. Jeff M.

I have a 2011 Hyundai Sonata. While driving down the road, it felt like I had a flat. took it in and they said the rear driver wheel needed a new brake hose and new caliper. that didn't fix the problem....


Yes, they are. It is called a split diagonal system. One separate part is the passenger front and driver rear. The other separate system is the driver front and passenger rear. The reasoning behind it is that if a leak or problem develops in one system, the other will still operate brakes on the other system, and there will still be braking action on both sides of the vehicle.

Gasoline smell in car


You may have leakings fuel line on top of gas tank when filling up or line is leaking where they connect to fuel filter under body maybe behind rear wheel wells , or may have a leaking furl injector or even your carbon gas canister filtr need chaging or ovver filling can send fuel up to that canister which recirculates gas fumes back to fuel system check your gas cap maybe leaking or when gas attended over filling it runs down into drain tube

Check the fuel vapor canister hoses, the fuel line and the fuel pressure regulator return line. Probably one of them is damaged or has a loose connection. A rusted line may have cracked when you removed it from the fuel tank - this is more likely than a problem with the vapor canister system.

Also inspect the filler tube (you didn't say whether it was the front or rear fender) to make sure it wasn't cracked somehow. You'll probably have to get underneath to see more precisely where the leak is. I strongly recommend wearing safety glasses, or better yet a face shield; you don't want gasoline in your eyes if you should accidentally look too closely at the problem! A small mirror on a telescoping rod may be very helpful. You can find these in many tool departments.

I expect your specialists to help me till I get this solved! Is that not your promise? You guru did not tell me where to locate the fuel filter on my car.


It is on the driver's side near the rear wheel. It is a small canister (black) with 3 hoses going into to it. Unless your steering wheel is on the right side then its on the rear of the passenger side just inside the front edge of the rear tire.

A Large leak is almost never a gas cap, thats usually the small leak. Dodge uses cheap hoses that crack badly. Check the canister in the Engine compartment, passenger side. Then check passenger side behind the cab by the frame. 2 canisters and hoses leaving that ,often cracked. Last is a piece that connects from the hard steel lines near the oil pan....one of these three usually
