well for years now I have had the P0442 and P0455 codes and I originally chased it down but then gave up haha. well now the time has come for me to get the Jeep smoged for CA plates, so I figured I better figure something out.
After some looking around I found some pretty big cracks which were never visible before, and after really looking at the EVAP system I realized there really isnt that much to it that could go wrong.
So seeing what theKSmith had done to move his components around I decided to do the same in preparation for a rear bumper and to hopefully fix all my leaks.
I didnt take any pics of the before, but any of you with and 04 im sure know what that mess looks like, my Jeep being from Ohio and seeing lots of mud and water looks pretty horrid.
I bought some rubber hose from pep boys in order to replace as much of the old stuff as I could, and to move the canister to up under the Jeep. I used 5/8" 3/8" and 1/4" hose for those that are curious
you can see where I mounted it and ran the new hoses here:
i decided to just use some heavy duty zip ties as its light and I dont think its going to go anywhere, but ill keep an eye on it.
It took some trial and error but I was able to just use the front piece of the old mount and bend it up and mount the LDP and filter to it but in a different configuration, after a little manipulation of the hoses I was able to use the hoses I had plus a little of the new stuff to make it all fit. The vent hose being pre molded like it was wasnt working for me so I just added the new hose to that and ran it up, easy day
this is some of the crap I didnt use, I swept up a lot of the rust and dirt haha
and with the original piece of metal bolted back up using the front two original mounting nuts, its tucked up in there pretty nicely
and with the bumper cover back on its pretty much all hidden now which is nice
I was thinking of making some kind of reenforced mount for the rear of the plate I used, but it seems to be fine the way it is, fairly light weight so it doesnt really move but again ill keep an eye on it and we shall see.
I havnt put my Iceland flares back on yet but I'm thinking I am gonna clean em up and maybe repaint them so the Jeep can look nice again maybe haha
hopefully this can inspire someone else or answer some questions as I havnt seem much of this around here
