JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: car wont take fuel. the dealer has it now and they 'think' its the evap system but we've replaced the whole evap system about a year ago. at one point the car was sending a p0442. I had a disreputable person make the repair and not knowing what they did!

Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site.


Do you need to know where to purchase the canister or where it actually is in the vehicle?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Both would be helpful, but also do you think this is causing the problem?

I see, thanks.


Let me just say that any money that you paid, or if you have a subscription, that money stays in your account until the answers are rated, (positive) regardless of how fast or how long it may take to get finished. You can FOLLOW UP AT ANYTIME, even after rating.


Although it would have to be tested to be sure and diagnosed according to the factory procedures, it is a good possibility that the canister itself is the cause of it.


The dealer, (factory) price on it is around $241, whereas after market, (EBay) a considerable amount less, $199 or so.


If you accept my additional service request for your email address, you can give me your email in a private info box and I'll send you the instructions along with the part number for the canister in a PDF file, the file is rather large.

You will just have to accept the additional service offer and ENTER your email address in the “ENTER CONTACT INFO” section so that I can see it.

I do not have access to your email address, Thanks
