Has anything else been replaced besides canister? Is it at shop now?

I did replace two oxygen sensors recently.. no the car is not in the shop
Mechanic for Honda: Dan, Technician replied 11 months ago

This can be caused by a few things, the most common things are the fuel cap and the purge solenoid. The best test is typically a smoke machine so you can visually look for leaks and is around $100 for the test at a shop. Otherwise to fix this at home you would want to replace fuel cap, if code comes back then visually inspect hoses, and then use a vacuum pump to test components for leaks. This code means the evap system has a small leak. Here are testing instructions from manual, let me know if you have questions. Thanks.

fixing the evap cannister is just one part of the solution? There could be other things as well? I did get gas 6 days ago..
Mechanic for Honda: Dan, Technician replied 11 months ago

The evap canister is rarely the cause. The evap system consists of multiple components, if any of them are leaking it would cause this code. I'd start by replacing gas cap and if that doesn't help you will need to do testing procedure as shown in above link. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

I changed the fuel cap saturday.. didn't drive a lot that day. Sunday, drove a little more but no more than maybe 20 miles.. the light is still on.. how long should I give it?
Mechanic for Honda: Dan, Technician replied 11 months ago

It might take a few days, you could also have codes reset at your local parts store for free. If light comes back on then further testing will need to be done by a shop unless you feel like doing tests in above link. Let me know if you have more questions, please do not forget to rate answer. Thanks.

After work I'm taking the car to a place to have the code read..i drive 60 miles a day and don't want to get stuck far from home.
The car is running good.. nothing strange happening that I can tell. I'm getting 45.4 miles per gallon. It's remained at that level. This light has been going on and off several times for the last few months. Changed two oxygen sensors and spark plugs and evap cannister. Car has been maintained well.
Mechanic for Honda: Dan, Technician replied 11 months ago

This code is only emission related, you don't need to worry about it leaving you stranded. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.

Thanks! I just need to fix it though to pass emissions .. I'm due this month.
Mechanic for Honda: Dan, Technician replied 11 months ago

Some testing is probably going to be required if light doesn't go off within next day or two. Let me know how it goes or if you need anything, you can reply to this answer at any time without additional fees. Thanks.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
