Chrysler Cirrus/Stratus/Sebring/Avenger/Breeze 1995-1998

Evaporative Canister

Print

This system is designed to contain 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 a charcoal canister, which stores the vapors until they can be removed and burned in the combustion process.

Check the evaporative emission control system every 15,000 miles (24,000 km). The evaporative canister is a sealed, maintenance-free unit. Inspect the fuel vapor lines and the vacuum hoses for proper connections and correct routing, as well as condition. Replace clogged, damaged or deteriorated parts as necessary. Refer to the Vehicle Emission Control Information (VECI) label, located under the hood, for routing of the canister hoses.

The evaporative system uses special type hoses. If it becomes necessary to replace any of the hoses, use only fuel resistant hoses.
