FUEL LEAKING FROM CANISTER SHUTOFF VALVE
01 E320 WAGON, 2 issues maybe related, maybe not. Apparently liquid fuel instead of vapor going into the charcoal canister and then leaking out of the shutoff valve, especially bad in hot weather. I live in the AZ desert so that is alot of the time.
Mechanic stumped, replaced the pressure sensor and shutoff valve. Not fixed, in fact worse. Also car running terrible, hesitating and hiccuping especialy in hot weather( alot)! If I take off the fuel cap it does not leak.
Canister is flooded but now mechanic wants to replace the fuel tank?? expensive too...
PLEASE HELP ME IF YOU CAN.
