Could be a vacuum leak. I'm not too familiar with that engine, but check all the air hoses, the PCV system, EGR and all that.... Also, change the charcoal cannister.

Is fuel filter the same as charcoal canister?

No. The fuel filter filters the liquid gasoline that is pumped to the engine.The charcoal canister traps the gasoline vapors from the fuel system so they can be burned in the engine.No. The fuel filter filters the liquid gasoline that is pumped to the engine.The charcoal canister traps the gasoline vapors from the fuel system so they can be burned in the engine.

It should be on the evaporative emminssions (charcoal) cannister under vehicle near fuel tank. It is a black box with hoses coming out of it, sometimes they are under a protective plastic cover.

What is an evap system purge and vent solenoid?

on modern cars the fuel system is unvented. The evap purge and vent solenoid goes to a charcoal canister. When the vehicle is off the fuel tank is connected to the charcoal canister through the P/V solenoid and it absorbs the vented gas fumes from the tank. When the vehicle is on and at speed the solenoid switches and the charcoal canister is connected to engine vacuum and the vacuum of the engine purges the gas fumes in the charcoal through the engine burning them

What does a code P0441 EVAP emission mean on a 2003 dodge neon purge flow fault?

Evaporative Emission Control System Incorrect Purge Flow The "EVAP purge flow" faults are issues between the carbon cannister and the intake. The EVAP leak detection generally concerns the fuel tank to carbon cannister plumbing. A little background. The EVAP or evaporative emission system is a control system to keep vapors from evaporation in the fuel tank from getting into the atmosphere. The fuel tank is not vented, but rather the vapors are piped to the carbon cannister (usually located behind the pass. side front wheel) where the charcoal element absorbs the vapor. This is actually a vapor "storage" device. Under certain engine operating conditions, the ECU activates the Cannister Purge Valve (N80) which opens and allows the engine vacuum to suck the fuel vapors back out of the carbon cannister. This purges the vapor, allowing the cannister to absorb more vapor. This evap system has been on vehicles since the '70s. As part of the OBDII standard effective for 1996 cars and newer, it was mandated that leaks in the systems must be detected and reported as a fault which will set the Check Engine Light (CEL). To detect leaks, the system is pressurized by a pump so that leaks can be detected by a lack of appropriate pressure in the system. If there is a leak, such as a cracked vent hose, loose (or leaky) gas cap, poorly installed or defective O-rings on the fuel level senders on the fuel tank, etc. a code will be set. On the cannister to intake side, leaks are detected by deviations in the idle control system. If you have leaks in the lines from the carbon cannister to the intake, intake leaks, a defective purge valve, etc you will often get purge flow faults. My first recommendation is to closely inspect all the small vacuum lines connected to the intake manifold. The corrugated plastic lines are often the culprits, as well as the fabricate covered vacuum lines. Also consider replacing the gas cap.

Why do I get gas fumes smell in trunk and drivers compartment of my 91 Mazda Miata?

What you are smelling are the hyrdocarbons, which are the more damaging portions of gasoline to the environment. It may be a leak in the evaporative system, but being that you smell in in the rear of the car, it's probably the Charcoal Evap Cannister, or the hose leading to it. The cannister is responsible for filtering out hydrocarbons from evaporating gas before it hits the air. If it's dead or not working this would be the fumes you'd smell. The cannister about the size of a golf ball and is typically hanging at the top of the rear passenger fender well.

How to fix obd reading p0455 evaporative emission control system leak detected gross leak?

After several weeks of intermittend codes or P0455, suddenly I could no longer fill the gas tank easily. I had to let gas trickle in. Dealer mechanic said fuel tank would not pressure test so they replaced my locking gas cap that I used for three years, then it pressure tested okay. They also replace the charcoal cannister ($152) and the cannister control valve (solenoid) for another $40. I bench tested the cannister and found no leaks or anything else wrong with it. I tested the cannister control valve and nothing was wrong with it. Fuel tank filled up okay.

What is the evaporative system?

The primary function of the evaporative emissions system (EVAP system) is to regulate the engine and fuel tank vapors. It keeps the vapors from being released into the air by collecting them in an activated charcoal storage tank.

2000 Hyundai Elantra charcoal canister?

These canisters are part of a fuel vapor system that filters outflowing air from gas tank when filled. Charcoal canister get clogged or spill charcoal to fuel lines, making difficult to fill the gas tank. The charcoal canister is located behind left rear wheel, close to the bumper. They have two hoses and an electrical conector.
