    I found an open plug. Can anyone help me locate the receptacle?

    I have had a CEL for a few weeks now, planning on a trip to the dealer soon. I was searching around the engine for loose hoses or anything that seemed out of place and I found this (the white plug in the center of the photo). Does anyone know what it plugs in to, and or if its my CEL?

    Why don't you post the DTC code? Probably goes to the coolant temp sensor.

    You need help finding the receptacle? Sounds like a personal problem...

    If the gas cap is fine, look at the evap canister. They've been known to go bad. I believe the part is ~$80 at your dealership. Spiders have been known to make nests in the lines, so you can use compressed air to blow them out, too.

    Ok, Maybe I can fix it myself if further investigation leads me to conclude that its the problem. I was looking at the evap canister last night (if im thinking the right part, its by the relay box). I removed the four or five clips, but couldnt get the damn thing to open up. How do I open it? Or should I just remove it completely and look at it?

    Noooo..the evap canister is down on the passenger back side of the car under the right side of the bumper if you're looking at it from the back of the car. Square box, near the tow hook.

    Yup - right there in the most awkward possible place for changing your sway bar.

    Ok, I know exactly what your talking about. I might just order a new one, somehow the large hose came disconnected about a year ago and I simply reconnected it. Some dirt or something must have gotten in the system and fouled things up.
