Signs of a Failing EVAP canister

Image
The canister purge valve, also commonly referred to as the purge valve, is an important component of your Evaporative Emission Control (EVAP) system. This system restricts the fuel vapours created in your fuel tank from escaping into the atmosphere by trapping them in a charcoal canister. When your engine begins to run at regular speed, the EVAP system slowly allows these vapours to be released into your engine, which burn like regular fuel. The flow of these vapours is controlled by your canister purge valve, which regulates when and how much of these vapours enter your engine. The canister purge valve is electrically operated, and is also referred to commonly as a solenoid. The most common purge valve issues are when the purge valve is stuck open or closed, or does not open at the proper time. The symptoms are listed below that may indicate your canister purge valve is not functioning properly. 1. Check Engine Light Is On The first sign of trouble for your canister purge valve is the

Most of the new model vehicle are equipped with variable valve timing inlet (VVTi) camshafts, which help adjust the valve timing of the vehicle when operating on certain loads, to help boost the engine performance at that particular instance. then readjust the timing to the normal point on average working conditions.  But when an ECU commanded the VVTi cam gear to return to the normal point and it's not working, this'll prompt the computer to throw the code P0015 or P0017 or both accuring at the same time, with the check engine showing on the dashboard. When the cam gear failed to return to the normal point after adjustment, this'

GL450 vibrating above 60MPH Vibration above 60 miles per hour while driving your GL or ML is caused primarily, by either a propeller shaft or the flat washer of the lower arm bushings. Lower arm bushing will cause the vibration if:           It’s broken           You Changed the position of the flat wide washer: the washer on the big bushing of the lower arm supposed to be at the right side of the bushing. If it’s changed from this position to the front end of the bushing, it’ll destroy the alignment of the lower arm and the bushing. This, if you're accelerating at a high speed above 60 mph, it’ll draw the iron in the bushing to the chasis of the vehicle. This you’ll feel as a vibration while speeding. This situation usually disappears when you lower your speed below 60mph.  lower arm bushing washer will be at the right side of the bushing, not left   Propeller shaft and driving shaft A broken driveline of the propeller shaft can cause the vibration of GL450 above 60mph
