Need help. Replace charcoal canister

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a CEL that comes up every 3 to 4 days after reset, dealership tracked it down to a smal leak from the charcoal canister. Can someone give me some advise how to replace it?

Thanks

It always helps to list the exact model and year of car.

 

Many small leaks are not the canister itself but one of the valves or line connections. I suggest further investigation...

Hi Loren,

 

Thanks for the quick answer!

It is a 997.1 TT 2008 convertible. The porsche dealer tested it and told me that it is the canister. I thought as well that it could be a line connection, but no idea how to test it. Thought to replace the canister and see what happen....Porsche is sure it is the canister (that is at least what they told me..).

Remove the top bracket and then lift the canister as much as possible.

Release the large coupling and pull it off. Then release the small coupling and pull it off also.

Remove the canister.

 

Install is the reverse order.

      If I run the car at less than 1/4 tank full it's very smooth great acceleration and responsiveness. With engine running I went and filled up with 99 octane as usual and straightaway the engine stutter comes back!!!!!!!! Fyi it is NOT fuel quality. 
      I've started a new thread for this but it's an old problem mentioned in previous posts and unresolved. 
      Basically the ctt 06 with 114,000km has been hesitating and stuttering for a while when accelerating particularly under boost in lower gears through the rev range of 2k 3k 4k ish rpm, it also will vibrate and stutter revving the same rpm in neutral/park when stationary. (which is very weird). 
      So after a lot of finding issues which helped the car overall none of them sorted this stutter out. 
      Quick list, 
      New oem Coils, plugs, n75 valve, air filters, purge valve, and Dv's,
      Fixed a lot of vac and pcv pipes which leaked 
      Smoke tested intake no leaks boost is +0.8
      Head Gaskets done a few 1,000 km all new parts gasket Seals etc. (problem was present before and after head Gasket work).
       
      I had a suspicion that the lower fuel level was playing a part in this but I can't work out why a fuller tank would cause running issues?
