Customer:

yes

Tracer :

This is the fuel tank vapor canister. Its job is to store raw fuel vapors from tank rather than going into air. When water drips, its actually condensation that has built up over time menaing the canister may now be full of as much vapor as it can handle and you replace it. No repair offered. Due to age. Its for emissions only

Customer:

ok
