Re: carbon canister
I'd like to thank everyone that helped me with this. I went to the
inspection station today after work and convinced them that the rails were
for the washer tank on the older models. We still couldn't find the carbon
canister but they were sufficiently convinced after we spent 10 minutes
fishing around for it that it was there. The "tube" they were talking
about is on the very top of the waste gate. It is actually a metal tube
fixture with no tube attached. There is a tank behind the air filter but
they told me that was the fuel filter.
So far, the kind folks on this list and Ned Ritchie have saved me over
$1100 in repair bills. Everything from the bad waste gate that was really
just a frequency valve to this incident of the "missing carbon canister."
Certainly doesn't instill me with much confidence. Repairee Beware.
