PostSubject: 93 Roady needs a vapor canister   Thu Nov 09, 2017 6:45 pm

Hi folks, I'm looking for a Vapor canister for my 93 Roady, and it looks like they stopped making the damned things! Normally I wouldn't care but the fuel fumes are getting excessive.

A few months ago, I cleaned out the purge valve (solenoid) on the can, and that seemed to work for a bit. Now it's jammed shut, and won't open at all. I've considered the hammer treatment, but don't want to end up going from fuel smell to vacuum leak.

It should be a standard products CP3175. Only places I've found it want $200 or so for it. A vented fuel cap would be much less than that, but I'd rather keep it right.

Does this part still exist?

If hit with a hammer in the right place will it unstick? Am I going to have to slice it open with the dremel, clean it and glue it back together?

I guess I can move to the unswitched vapor canister and use a separate solenoid valve nearby but again, that's moving away from stock and would add more junk in the engine bay.

Should I get used to being high on e10 on the drive home everyday?

Thanks!

Are the canisters the same in a sedan? Not sure but would think so. Maybe a JY run is in order...

Sounds like a plan!

All of the 91-93 canisters are the same. I am not sure of the 94-96, but when something works, GM probably did not spend a lot of resources redesigning it. If the junk yard has a 91-93, go get it. They sit right on top, so they are easy to remove. The 94-96 is under the right front fender behind the wheelhouse extension, and has a nifty bracket that can be used to hide the 91-93 at the same location on the driver's side (you will have to extend the wires, and hoses a little).

If you can not find one, I believe I still have the one from my 91 when I put the 454 in it.
