I can tell you what it is.
But its going to cost you.....
going rate is your firstborn child.



Its part of your EVAP and emissions. Its a No-touchy-touchy object. its similar to a carbon canister, but for the gas fumes. (remember, this was when California was in everyones business about emissions)
