Anyone know the location of the Evap canisters and vent solenoid on a 2000 LS?
It's mounted above the rear subframe. You have to take the subframe off to get to it. Both the canister and the vent valve are there. The purge valve is under the hood on the driver's side shock tower.
I wonder if i should change the purge valve first and see if that makes a difference. It doesnt weant to stay running when started
Why are you thinking this is a canister or vent valve problem? I think you may be diagnosing in the wrong area...
Just going by the trouble codes it gave me. Ive done the Coils, plugs,valve cover gaskets, etc.
What specific five-character OBDII codes are you getting?
Would a clogged canister be the cause to slow filling at the pump or could it be as simple as the purge valve?
BTW, thanks for the photos showing the canister. Been dealing with this problem for years and finially decided to fix it. Google has been no help.
Also, do you have a legend for the photos telling us what the parts are.
There are multiple possible causes for slow filling.
This may fill in some of the details from the diagrams: 2006 Lincoln LS Workshop Manual
What are the most common for filling a gallon a minute
Most common over all (most all cars) is spiders clogging the vent line.
That's what iv heard. Which is why I was looking for the evap can so I could blow it out with some air
Incidentally Joe, that knob on top of the "purge valve" it turns.
What if someone turned that not knowing what it would result.
I grabbed a hold of it one day and ended up turning it both ways a bit.
I think that's just a dust cap that is snapped on (but I really haven't looked into it).
This? Just a dust cap
No, that's a cover for a test port.
I thought he was talking about the part circled in red below. (He did say "top" and not the side.) Perhaps he can confirm...
Yes 4, wasn't sure if it was supposed to move. Hadn't noticed before.
Oh, I'm driving the 2000 ls8. No top thingy... I spent all day trying to unclog my evap line. Quickly realized that the evap canister wasn't coming out unless I removed the entire back end. Shot air in the line leading from the valve and into the tank directly with no luck. She does fill faster but still under 1gal/min
