Well, as things usually work out, I worked out in the garage all day Saturday while it was 55 out, only for it to drop to 24 and my CEL come on...dohh.
It's coming up as P0446 and P0441, so I targeted the problem to be the VSV (Vapor Switch Sensor) and the Evap Charcoal Canister.
I managed to wrestle the damn canister out from the rear of the car:
To test the valve correctly, I need 2 alligator clips and a 9V battery, right?
If that's correct, then when I touch the black clip to the battery then I should hear the valve open/close, right?
I'm going off of this tutorial online for reference:
So assuming I have it bench tested correctly, I can say that the VSV is not functioning will need replacing?
The part is $71.60 for the VSV itself:
And the Vapor/Evap Charcoal Canister is $251.79 on RockAuto.com
If anyone could please chime in and give me some information as to what I should do/the most cost effective solution, I'd greatly appreciate it. I need my car this week so I'm kind of in a bind for time.
