Well, I finally did this during my spring break. I had already replaced the charcoal canister, and nothing. Replaced the evap purge solenoid, and that valve thing that goes to it (can be seen in the picture from shbox.com) and shoot and blew out all the carbon bits (good bunch came out). Drove for several miles, and light went away.


YeePee!!!!

I tried soaking it in gas and cleaners, I also tried bending it but nothing worked. Finaly I broke it up just enough so that air or fluid could barely get through.

I then filled a cup with some purple power and sucked it up through the tube as if it were a straw with the hope that this would help to break up the clog.

So guess what. I assumed that purple power was just a harmless cleaner until I got it in my mouth then OMG. Mouth was totally on fire like SOB and I spit the **** out all over the place in the kitchen. I have siphoned gas tanks and gas tastes like Koolaid compared to purple power cleaner. So since I did not learn my lesson and since the pain and discomfort was not enough I did it a second time.

I cant believe I am telling you guys this.
About 15 minutes later after the pain had subsided a bit I noticed that my lips were getting bigger. I then looked like JJ Walker from "Good Times" in th 70's for a few hours and it also messed up my speech with a major lisp. My wife absolutely could not believe what I did and dropped dead laughing at my new appearance and accent. Dyn-o-mite.

The bottom line is I finally got the plastic tube cleaned out but if I had to do it again I would just buy a replacement no matter what the cost. So the moral of the story, if you ever find some purple power in your mouth , spit don't swallow. Sorry, no video or pics to show.

Yeah I remember that. LOL But it can be topped.

Back in 2000 a dip-**** on an off-board 4x4 board was Herculining his rocker panels while obviously being naked. FTR, "Herc" is sticky and nasty and nearly impossible to wash off.

He then posted a thread wanting to know what to do because he got herc on his hootus, which could likely only be two things.

Here is the link to that very epic funny thread:

I sure could use some pics od this guys! The guy who had the car before me must have taken all this stuff out so I had to buy all new stuff. I got a canister, the valve that is by it, the purge valve and all but I need to know where the lines are and where to run them now. A simple sketch would have me on my knees with relief! I see a tube the just stops under the car between the rear seats and fuel tank but is that suppose to be like that or does a line to the canister come off that?. I cannot believe I have looked at all the diagrams and have evrythin open to look at here and still am clueless!
SO, where does the lines coming out of the canister go to? The ones coming out the top of the fuel tank seem to be all correct but there is 2 that seem to be back a bit and for venting purposes but which goes where? I am getting the dang codes and have since I bought it but being in Cali they are making me go to a "real" place this year so I cnt buy my way out of it this time. Need some help fellas!

I found this thread today while researching the code. According to SHbox's page on 96-97's I found charcoal particles in numbers 7, 14 & 11. I cleaned out 11 & 14 then replaced 7. Code is gone. Also replaced #5 with a 90 degree spark plug boot.
