Vapor Canister

Is there anyway to clean one? Iv been looking around everywhere but cant find any info on that. Do you just buy a new one?

Re: Vapor Canister

A good used one will be just as dirty as the one you took out. Besides, they are supposed to be changed every 3 - 5 years. It's in the manual.

Re: Vapor Canister

It is better to get anew one. Mine's the original with 152k miles and 9 years old. The reason most get contaminated is from overfilling the tank. When the pump handle shuts off, don't keep adding fuel.

Re: Vapor Canister

the one in the front bumper right?

Im just closely looking at the vacuum lines. If i unhook the one line at the pvc valve that goes up into the front bumper, it idles a little better. Like there is a line stoped up somewhere. I think its the one going to the round thing in the fender(forget what its called)

Re: Vapor Canister

What are you replacing it for? Did someone tell you it's bad? As far as the hose from the PCV, did you plug the port where it was hooked up? Do you have a running problem?
