Re: To replace or not replace charcoal canister
I realize your in Canada and I don't know what the emissions laws are there, but it may be covered by the factory emissions warranty, depending on mileage.
Typically vacuum leaks in the EVAP systems are due to leaks in hoses, at hose connections or malfunctioning valves, not the canister itself.
It seems to me that if the canister was able to hold vacuum until now, and unless you damaged it off-road, it should be fine. They are made of plastic and don't rot like rubber hoses or malfunction like valves.
If the canister actually has a leak and you can locate it, you should be able to seal it with automotive grade silicon.
