Question about 2002 Toyota Camry
Are you one of those people who TOP OFF the tank when filling up?
When the EVAP recovery system soak with few ounce of gasoline......the trap vapor will take few days escape.
EVAP system is design to handle fuel vapor. Few ounce of gasoline can damage the fuel vapor recovery relay and decrease the service live of the recovery lines.
You can accelerate the process by locating the charcoal canister (near the nose of the car and same side as your gas filler door)
MOVE the car to outdoor.
Disconnect the EVAP line and let it air out by itself.
DO NOT introduce any heat source or fan to speed up the process.
Reconnect this EVAP hose and use a small amount of starting fluid at the intake manifold.
Please post more information by Clicking on the comment link.
I will follow up.
