Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you by discussing your request in detail.
Hi how can I resolve the issue with my 2005 Echo please
The corrosion on the fuel inlet, where the cap fits onto, is causing a small vapour pressure leak.
Are you aware of a product called "scotch-brite"? It is a green product designed for cleaning
I am new to canada so will have a look for it what does it do?
It is used to clean pots and pans, it is a rectangular, rather thick piece of coarse material
Ok right what are you suggesting pls
I would recommend that you purchase thsi product, and rub it onto the filler neck, until the corrosionis alleviated (stick a piece of paper towel into the opening to catch any debris_
Scotch-Brite is less coarse than sandpaper, and works quite well.
would you recommend removing all the corrosion pits to leave a smooth surface and how about greasing it up afterwards?
Yes. Remove the corrosion. Use some vaseline on the opening after you get it cleaned up.
If the pitting is really bad, a new filler tube may be in order.
do I have to take her back to the garage to and pay another $60 to get the diagnostic out and the code reset or is there a gadget I can buy that will reset the codes?
You can normally find the scotch-brite pads in the cleaning products aisle of most grocery stores, or retailers like Wal-Mart
If you get it cleaned properly, and it then seals, the light should go out after a few cold start-ups.
If you have an Autozone, or similar automotive parts retailer nearby, they sometimes scan cars for free; they could also clear the code for you.
