Question about GMC Jimmy
On your Jimmy there is a solenoid that controls fuel vapor emissions.
When filling the vehicle this solenoid called the "canister vent valve" should be open allowing the vapors to reach the carbon canister where these vapors are stored to be burned later.
These solenoids can seize closed and not allow the tank to vent properly.
This solenoid will need to be replaced.
It is mounted above and ahead of the spare tire so the tire will need to be removed to gain access to it.
After you remove the spare it is only a matter of disconnecting a couple of hoses and a wire connector then removing the valve.
There you are, thank you for using FixYa.
