Charcoal canister

Will the engine run right without it? I am getting blow by. I know I can fix it by replacing some of the lines but just curiuos. Can you plug it off and go without it?


93 YJ SOA 2" springs front, XJ springs rear w/main leaf added, High pinon 9 inch rear detroit locker front Dana 44 ARB 4.56 Gears, 36 inch Irok tires too much to list.

The charcoal canister is there to absorb gas fumes before they vent into the atmospere, so yes, you will run fine without it as long as you plug all the vacuum lines. Blow-by , on the other hand, is caused by worn pistons/cylinder walls, and there is nothing you can do external to the engine to fix that!

... or a blocked PCV valve system . check the valve and tubing for blocking .. test engine fuming by using clear/transparent tubing between the valve and inlet manifold to gauge the amount of fumes are being drawn thru (you can only do this when the engine is cold .. the suction will colapse the tubing when hot).
If you suspect worn engine, test the compression of each cylinder.
