Signs of Evaporative Emission Control Canister Failure

Slide2:

There are various systems in a car which play an active role in the emission control of the vehicle and the evaporative emission control canister is among them.

Slide3:

The harmful gases can burn the nose, and can be very dangerous if inhaled causing nausea, headaches and breathing problems.

Slide4:

The amount of fuel vapors that can escape from a vehicle are strictly regulated, and the evaporative emission control canister helps in regulating the emission of fuel vapors.

Slide5:

Fuel that evaporates into vapor is stored in the charcoal canister for later use in the engine as an important part of the air/fuel mixture.

Slide6:

Let us discuss in detail about the evaporative emission control canister and signs of its failure.

Slide7:

What is evaporative emission control canister?

Slide8:

When fuel vapors are produced inside the fuel tank due to evaporation, they are collected in the charcoal canister, or evaporative emission control canister.

Slide9:

Then the engine control module sends the fumes collected in the charcoal canister are purged through a valve and sent into the engine to burn as part of the air/fuel mixture.

Slide10:

Dust & debris from regular driving conditions can accumulate in the emission control canister, causing the purge and vent solenoids or valves to malfunction.

Slide11:

Moreover, the charcoal canister can crack either due to impact or harsh environmental condition.

Slide12:

If this occurs, raw fuel or fuel vapors are lost into the environment around your vehicle, and a noticeable fuel smell can occur.

Slide13:

Here are the signs of evaporative emission control canister failure-

Slide14:

Illumination of check engine light

Slide15:

The check engine light can illuminate for many reasons but if the illumination is combined with gasoline smell, then the evaporative emission control canister has failed.

Slide16:

You should immediately take your car for an inspection to determine the exact cause for illumination of the check engine light.

Slide17:

Collapsed or leakage in fuel tank

Slide18:

When the evaporative emission control canister undergoes a serious failure, then in some cases the gas tank can actually collapse.

Slide19:

Moreover, when you are removing the gas cap and experience a whooshing sound, then the issue is related to the evaporative emission control canister.

Slide20:

Furthermore, if you are smelling raw fuel when you are standing at the back of your car, then it is a possibility that the evaporative emission control canister has failed.

Slide21:

Whenever, you notice these signs take your car to an automotive repair shop to fix the issue quickly as delaying it can worsen the problem.
