taurus 2000 how to check EVAP canister and hose connection

Taurus 2000, check engine light is on. The error code is P0442. I want to check the probable causes step by step. Fuel cap has been cleaned, but it does not work. So for the next step, want to check the EVAP canister and hose connection. Where is the EVAP canister, and how to check it and the hose connection ? Thanks a lot

You'll only be able to check for obvious damage and cracks. You need a smoke machine to further verify it. Canisters are mounted under vehicle on spare tire well.

Hi, so... Is this just a plug and play part to replace, or do I need to take it to a shop? Any special equipment, calibrations needed, etc? Had the evap solenoid replaced last week, now 130 mi later, they are telling me the canister has a 1 in crack in it and needs replacing. Really don't feel like paying 2X for labor, when it looks relatively easy to install... I think.

Thanks for any one out there that can give some info on this.

If it's a 1996-2007 model it just under the spare tire well. The bracket retaining nuts may be seized to the studs, but the studs are easily replaced. The lines have squeeze tabs for disconnecting. Drop the assembly out and the canister is in the bracket. After reassembly clear the codes with a scan tool.
