It is that black can looking thing on the left front of the engine comparrment. It has vacuum and eletrical lines.

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.

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.

check for an emmission control system problem such as the heated cannister purge valve

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.

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
