this part of the inspection has a two part test
one is the gas cap itself (which passed)
the other is pressure in the tank (which it failed)

question is how can i possibly repair this.
ive read up on it and i need a source of only 12 psi. i have a compressor but i cant stop it at 12. and i dont trust a regulator enough to stop it for me.

and even if i did get it pressurized how would i find a leak?

is this something i should just goto a mechanic with?


thx

i diddnt know we had charcoal canisters on these old things. what does it look like

when the guy did the test he clamped down some hose near the coil then he connected some special gas cap with an air hose and pumed it up.

however the computer detected that there was a decrease in the pressure so it failed.

ill crawl under and check my gaskets and see if any rot has occurred.
