the canister is about 3 1/2 inches wide and has three tube and is bolted with a u shaped bracket. it had 3 tubes or wires running in and then there a plastic outlet that will leak as soon as the engine is started and it will leak for about 10 minutes after the engine is off.

whats the canister? is it the vacume for the fuel pump?


what are the symptoms of oil pressure switch failure?

thanks in advance.

It's your EVAP canister and if it's leaking gas you have to find out why.
It's really only for storing vapors from the fuel tank to be burned
with the air fuel charge. It has a hose going to the tank to return
vapors there. Some reason the charcoal pad in the bottom has become
fuel saturated and nees to be replaced. You don't have to replace the
whole canister. Just unbolt it , turn it upside sown and you'll see
the packing/filter in the bottom. Most parts stores have em or can get
em..But you have to find out why it got so saturated with fuel. I
have the orig on mine and it's dry..This is also a major reason for
emissions failures. As in HC's.
