2005 Hyundai Elantra Question: I get computer error: Evaporative emissions leak (small).

Have it smoke tested to find the leak.

That will be last resort.
Where is the canister, purge valve? by gas tank and or back of engine?
Thanks in advance

So instead of finding the leak first and fixing it, you are willing to just buy parts and install them wheather it needs it or not? Ok, i guess you might eventually get it right. It's your money!

No I am not going to buy parts and replace one by one until I get it right. I wanted to unplug the hose from purge valve and see if there is any vacuum. If no vacuum then I know it is the valve. The canister and valves are all together under the vehicle.
I already have a canister and purge valve off another car.It is easy enough to switch and see if it is that. If not I put the old one on and have a smoke test.
I never said I was just going buy parts and install them whether it needs it or not? I am not spending no money!! Only if I have a smoke test.
Thank You for your answer.
Is your spell check working? wheather, correct spelling, whether.

First mistake i ever 'maid'. But I know you read it now! You see, everything i do is carefully planed... All that aside, how much is a smoke test in NY.? Maybe i don't get enough for that down here in the sticks.
Cheap tablet, no spell checker, but you did a fine job, so i guess i don't need it!!!!
