Ford Escort/Lynx 1981-1990 Repair Guide

Evaporative Emission Canister



See Figure 1

Since the canister is purged of fumes when the engine is operating, no real maintenance is required. However, the canister and hoses should be visually inspected for cracks, loose connections, etc. Replacement is simply a matter of disconnecting the hoses, loosening the mount and replacing the canister.
