Looks like this:



Look at the rear of the gas tank, you will see the canister tucked up high....follow the large hose from the canister to the vent solenoid....

I have seen problems with the harness to the vent solenoid....

Also, do not attempt to fill tank while the car is running....

Usually if there is a vent solenoid problem, an emission code is set....
