Did they do a smoke test on the truck?
no, I do not think so. They just hook it to the computer.
This code is a catch all code for a problem with the evap system
Ok, It could need the vent control valve and the canister, however it would be hard to tell without a smoke machine
this blows smoke into the evap system and will leak where the small leak is
So if a licensed repair shop does the repair should he do the test
I believe they would have had to test it somehow to come to that conclusion.
yes, he would normally do this type of test to come to the conclusion.
I have also seen this leak in this area so I am not surprised this is what they think it needs
here is a lost of what it can be. This is why I believe they tested it to come to this conclusion
I co ncern I have is that the light come and goes and I had to wait to the last inspection day and it did not go out so i failed the inspection. should i try something else before spending the big bucks
You could try replacing the O ring on the vent control valve
take it off and clean the dirt from around the canister and put a new O ring on.
this is where it normally leaks
it is located under the truck behind the left rear wheel
Is there an easy way to get directions on which o ring you are takling about?
When you remove the vent control valve from the canister, it has an O ring on it. This is the one I am talking about.
2 ten mm bolts hold it on
The box with all the hoses going in and out is that on one of the nozzles?
It is bolted to the box. It is the only part with an electrical connector.
OK, I will give it a try. thank you
