RE: Picture of charcoal canister behind fender liner
The reason I was considering replacing it was that I recently was getting a strong gasoline odor in the car, especially in the trunk. I replaced the gas cap and that seems to have solved the problem. However since the canister is where the fuel vapors are stored, and when engine temperature, rpm, etc, are appropriate, the fumes are purged from the canister via a vacuum signal and recycled into the intake manifold. So I figured that it would be a good idea to make sure it's working properly by replacing it.
