The Evaporative Emissions Systems on today’s vehicles are comprised of sophisticated
components, all of which must be operational for the system to perform properly. To remain
operational all components must be properly maintained and serviced as describe in the
appropriate service information available on TechCONNECT.
All worn, damaged, or inoperative evaporative emissions components must be
new, unused components available from DaimlerChrysler.
In addition all evaporative emissions hoses both pre-formed and straight must
be replaced in
their entirety. Under no circumstances should a worn or damaged hose be repaired. Any
attempt to repair a worn or damaged hose may result in a future repeat failure of the same
hose, and the customer may experience a repeat condition. Hoses must be replaced with new
assemblies when available or approved bulk hose when the assemblies are not available.
The approved service procedure, using new MOPAR service components, is the
only way to
ensure that a repair of the evaporative emission system will be permanent. This is very
important to ensure that the evaporative emission system functions properly for the useful life
of the vehicle.
