EVAP System Leak, how do you find it?
Ok, so I got stupid yesterday and bought the hand held code reader from the auto parts store to read codes in my 2002 Liberty ( there was not anyone there that could take 5 minutes to walk outside and read the codes for me so I got mad and just bought the $280 computer ). It states there is a "small leak in the EVAP system". I have a basic level of mechanical aptitude and can usually fix most minor things, but for the life of me I can not find a hose off or any holes that would cause this error code. Also, I do not see anything that resembles what I think a "charcoal canister" should look like. I do not see anything that resembles a 2 lb. coffee can with vacuum lines coming out of it.
So my questions are these: 1. How does one go about finding said leak. 2. where in the world is the evap canister.
I actually have three Jeeps, my wife's Liberty, a Cherokee and my Wrangler. It is a pain when two of the three have the same problem......
