I think that's what it's called. It's a black can, mounted on the fire wall near the battery and has a vacuum line and a return fuel line to the tank on the top.

Anyway, mine started pukin fuel out of the bottom and I couldn't see a broken line. Won't run hooked up, but when we blocked both lines she purred like a kitten.

What does this thing do ???? Aircare bullshit ??? I need one !!!???

a charcoal canister is for evaporative emissions (fumes) from the tank and carb. at extreme angles and when a vehicle sits for a long period of time it will become saturated with fuel and will start to leek. the charcoal canister has no purpose except for emissions and is not required to make your vehicle run properly. I would bypass it and loose the pound or so. I'm pretty drunk right now but that sounds right to me.

It may only be a samurai but it's still better than your jeep.

Just fumes ??? I had gallons pissing out of it:(

Plus, the pressure in my tank was so huge it backed up all the way into that little tank in the cab and overflowed all over my floor and garage. What a mess !!!![10] When I undid the filler cap it blew right out of my hand and pissed air for about 15 seconds. What the fuck ????[28]

you need a new vented gas cap rich.
