Where is my evap located on a 1998 pontiac grand prix


which part of the evap system are you looking for. there are several components in your evap system. if you are looking for the evap canister it is located near the rear of the vehicle either on drivers side near the gas tank or just in front of the gas tank. it is a black plastic box with usually 2 vacuum lines running into it. if you are going off an evap leak engine code start with a new gas cap. a bad seal on a gas cap can cause the computer to read an evap leak. if that doesnt work then you may need to have a smoke test done at a local garage. basically they fill the evap system with smoke with a special machine then look for the smoke to appear from the leak in the system. again the evap system consists of several components that run from the engine to the gas tank. it circulates the vapor fumes from the gas back to the tank to be reburned so it does not get released into the atmosphere.

I brought a 1983 buick century it has been started in 7 years it got only 40,000 mile what must i do


If it has not been started in 7 years, you may want to do some internet research on putting cars back in service after storage.
At the very least you would need to drain the gas tank and the engine oil, probably the coolant and transmission fluid too.
Once you refill everything, the engine would need to be cranked with the fuel pump disabled until oil pressure comes up to normal, then you could try to start the engine.
And once you get it started, I would run it for 5 or 10 min then shut it off and let it cool down. Check for leaks and noises while it is running.
I would NOT start it up and expect to drive it any distance.

Car started only after several cranks, was told fuel pump replacement, is it normal with 68,000 miles?


You probably have a submersable pump. If you have run the gas on below 1/4 tank for some time, you probably burned out the pump. Alway fill up 1/2 tank or more.

And with the mileage, it isn't unusual to replace the pump.

Gas cap and service engine lights come on


there is a pressure sensor on the fuel tank, it is most likely bad and makes the system look like it has a leak to the computer that monitors the sensor, replace the evap system gas tank pressure sensor

Pontiac grand am stalling


believe me the motor in your car has spark plugs. unless the engine is a deisel which i highly doubt...you definitely have a fuel problem, or more likely a gas guage problem.where at a 1/4 tank it actually is running on fumes... have it checked at a full service garage..good luck..

The car only have 43,000 ml on it but it have


first drain the engine oil and oil filter.next replace the battery and clean the battery cables.then you will need to siphon out the old gas or if below quarter of tank added 5 gal. of gas to gas tank then disconnect dist.ign. lead on side of dist.and crank engine over with out starting.for about 10 sec. do this 4-5 times then crank over for 30 sec.this will help get oil to the bearings.next hook up the dist. and check all wires for rodent chewing and repair if found.then check antifreeze in radiator may need to change along with thermostat,and possible all hoses they may be dry rotted. the front seal on the water pump may start leaking after running so you may want to replace. try and start engine.do not drive. wish you the best let me know how it goes.

Can you put fuel cleaner in your gas tank? my bike runs fine then it stalls and sometimes it won't start. I just bought the bike and the owner had it setting for 2 years in his garage can it be bad gas?


Hello shawn...Yes indeed gasoline can degrade over time. That can lead to a number of problems, ranging from hard starting, to rough running, to no starting at all...If your bike was stored for 2 years the gasoline in it has degraded beyond use. Even if the gas was treated with stabiliser before it was stored...it will still degrade in 10-12 months, if not sooner. I'm suprised your bike will even start. I suggest you drain ALL the gas out of the tank, Rinse and refill with fresh gas, drain your carbs as well...the stale gas has most likely clogged the pilot jets, draining the carb bowls will help.
Go to your parts store and buy a can of "Seafoam" pour 1/2 of it in with your fresh gas..use the other 1/2 on your next tank of gas.
Replace fuel filter after 1st tank, the seafoam will dislodge any debris that was in the fuel tank. It will also clean the combustion chambers and carb jets. Check your carb boots for any cracks or detoration that would cause a vacuum leak. Replace your spark plugs. If your bike is still running rough after this, then the carbs will need to be removed and cleaned and/or rejetted.
Good luck..i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

Gas leaks from hose running from tank connected to nothing


i would guess that that is your fuel line and reconnecting it would be a good idea as leaking fuel and motorbike engines dont mix that well and normally result in your bike going up in flames

Car won't start


Your fuel pump is sticking and not pumping, this is common if you run the fuel down to less than 1/4 full, the fuel pump needs the gas to cool itself, below a 1/4 tank the pump is not getting cooled and after repeatably running low on fuel it overheats and fails. Running the car near 1/2 tank extends the pump life to many years more than running tank below a 1/4 full..
