Tests/Procedures: 1. Loosen the gas cap, check for about 1.5 volts or 0 inches H2O pressure on the Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor (FTPS) using a scanner.
2. Check for a restricted evaporator vent solenoid filter. Remove the vacuum hose from the vent solenoid.
3. Install a longer hose to the vent solenoid fitting and attempt to blow through it with your mouth. There should be no resistance. If there is, the vent solenoid is restricted and should be replaced.
4. If the vent solenoid is not restricted, check for a restricted charcoal canister.
