    Evaporative Canister

    Print

    This system is designed to limit gasoline vapor, which normally escapes from the fuel tank and intake manifold, from discharging into the atmosphere. Vapor absorption is accomplished through the use of the charcoal canister, which stores the vapors until they can be removed and burned in the combustion process.

    The evaporative canister does not require periodic service. Check the hoses and canister for cracks and/or other damage. For canister removal and installation procedures, please refer to Driveability & Emissions Controls of this repair guide.
