Big G,thebig_G said:I now have this problem with my 08 V6 Limited. Check engine light on, VSC & 4wd now disabled. Dealer tells me it is the canister, and they want over $1k to replace. Also tells me were unable to reset it, so now Im driving without 4wd capablility and VSC. Only 42000km on this turd. The 3yr comprehensive warranty expired x 2months ago. I bought this thing last month.
The canister on my G/Fs 06 Matrix went at 50,000km to the tune of $800.
Going to phone Toyota Canada and ask them specifically how long these things are supposed to last. Of course my question is rhetorical - they last just long enough to see the warranty expire
I'm getting this thing fixed, then sold, and then buying anything other than this grossly overrated company can make
I'm just found this thread and have the dreaded canister disease on my 2007 RAV4 with 57k miles. My mechanic says that I need the whole assembly including a pump, not just the canister. Does that make sense? If I find a Scion canister is that enough or do I need more parts? Thanks in advance for any info.You can fix it by yourself, I having same issue before, I found out using the 05-08 scion tc vapor canister parts will work with Rav4 2006-2008, so far, my rav4 working without any issue and no error codes. you can goto ebay to get the 05-08 scion tc vapor canister parts. you may able to found the manual link from this website. I replace my Charcoal canister only spend around 40 minutes. Good luck.
Do you happen to have the EXACT scion/toyota part number? Also, have you had the code come back on in the last 6mo?Update on my EVAP canister problem. I found a '07 Scion Tc canister online from a totaled car for $75. My mechanic put it in for $45 and it's been over a week with no check engine lights. Thanks to the posters in this forum for the idea and the advice
