So my 96 thunderbird had an evap problem. Which was that the evap canister was missing entirely causing the motor to stall. Instead of installing a new evap I just plugged off the two hoses that would plug into the evap canister. It’s ran like this for about a year now. Will this cause any inherent problems?
Cause so far the only thing I’ve noticed other than it throwing a evap code is that when I open the gas cap it hisses for like 2 minutes and shoots gas fumes at so you smell a ton of gas fumes and it smells terrible and if you lit a match or cigarette around it it would burn down the entire gas station killing every one.
Why didn’t I just replace it? Most of both of the hoses just disintegrated as soon as I touched them so it wouldn’t be just a easy fix cause I’d have to replace the hoses to. I plan to get new hoses and install the evap canister this summer though
