Yes, it pulls the vapors from the fuel tank by vacuum back into the engine. Vent line should be tied back into the filler neck. This is one reason why you are not supposed to top off the fuel. You end up dumping it into the evap cannister. More than likely you did not need the emmissions cannister they replaced, you just needed to uplug the line. It will set codes all the time. Did you get your $300 back?

no i did not get my money back. As they all say computor shows.So i dont have any proof. If i had taken it to a mechanic that does not have a computor with lots of experience he would have went searching and found it. For as im concerned all these so called certified trained mechanics are a bunch of YA HOOS. They talk to you like your stupid. Once the warranty is gone you are SCREWED.
