charcoal canister problem
took my 07 corolla to dealership after check engine light came on, they hooked it up and told me that I need a new charcoal canister. (The part was on back order so I had to go home and wait for call.) 1 month past and no call so I called them and get this....
They told me that Toyota canada is refusing to send out any more charcoal canisters under warrenty(unless the customer wants to pay) I am still under warrenty. Because TOO many corolla/Matrixes are being diagnosed with bad charcoal canisters, they are being replaced and the check engine light is still coming on.
I said to the guy at the dealership "Didn't you hook it up to get codes and the charcoal canister is what it said" he says, "No we just said that??????"
So he says toyota is "working on the problem" ....so if i have to take my car though air care and it fails, what good is the car!!!
Has your problem been resolved yet, if so what was the problem. Best of Luck
I should probably post this in the main forum, just to see if or how many others are having this problem.
