Question about 1999 Lexus ES 300
If the canister was full of fuel it means the vapor recovery is malfunctioning and it needs to be repaired not moved. Your check valve may be defective or the vacuum hose is cracked or the injector is putting out more fuel than it's supposed to, I would suggest you get a second opinion before moving the canister. You can also look it up in the free magazine at the library for consumer magazine and check for this problem being listed and what the proper fix it is. Moving parts on a car is not a good thing to do to without the manufacture suggesting where to move it due to fire hazard and or fume buildup inside the car compartment or engine compartment where it could catch fire. Thanks for using fix-ya and hope this helps you.

P0443 The fuel vapor canister reduces that gas smell on hot days outside/inside of car. The fuel vapor canister fillers bad smells from gas tank on hot days when the gas expands and burps fumes through carbon canister filter. From the canister (gas vapor fumes) goes back into the engine to be burned again...it's a closed loop for vapors to be recycled though engine. Don't worry, once the carbon canister dries out and no longer flooded with raw fuel the code should go away...just don't let the top off fuel tank back flow into the 'Evap emission control' carbon filter near the top and close to the gas cap...:)
