My canister was in the Left Rear fender well. Right behind the taillight. You must jack the car up, remove the LR wheel, then using your 4 foot long left arm, feel behind the tail light. Most often the hoses are dry and loose fitting. Replace them if you can. You should also replace the valve on top of the canister because once you replace the canister, you will probably never visit this area of your car again. There is a bolt that holds the canister to the inside of the fender well. You should unplug the electrical connector on the valve on top of the canister, then disconnect the hoses that connect to the top of the canister. Once you have removed all these, you can remove the bolt holding the canister, and bring the canister out into the sunlight. Replace all the hoses if you can, then install your new $85.00 canister back in place and connect the hoses and electrical plug. Because of its location, this can be a very frustrating job. You need the hands of a child, on 4 foot arms, and double joints. Paul

A well maintained Pontiac Sunfire with the 2.2L 4-cylinder engine should be easily be able to reach 200,000 miles as designed. This will require you to be active in maintaining its engine oil intervals & level, transmission fluid and filter changes, coolant flushes, and remembering to replace belts, PCVs, air and fuel filters.
