[DML] Re: (DML) Carbon Canister Replacment

Before you have to replace the canister there are a couple of things
to check. The filter inside on the bottom can be replaced. Common
General Motors filter that you can get at any auto store. The hose
coming out of the bottom is very often plugged up by insects. If it is
blocked the canister can't vent and purge properly so it is important
that the hose be checked because if you just go and replace the
canister with a new one the new one won't work any better with the
hose plugged up. There is a rubber cap on the canister that is very
often disintegrated. It should be replaced too. Of course all the
vacuum hoses should be checked or nothing will work right, new or old.
While you are in the left pontoon you should also check the vacuum
resovoir and the hoses for the A/C and heat. If you have a power
antennae you should make sure it is securely fastened. I have seen
several that were loose. No special tools are required but if the
riv-nuts turn in the fiberglass you will wish there was a special tool
for that! That canister is dam near bulletproof so check everything
else first.
