    Default Location of Charcoal Canister

    Hello, First time poster here. 2003 Tacoma SR5 4x4 2.7L

    I received the trifecta P0441, 442, 446 codes and I am trying to diagnose. Refilled with fuel, ensured the cap was on tightly and reset code and it came back on. Visually inspected all hoses all the way back to the fuel tank and they look ok. I ordered a new OEM gas cap (the current one is OEM also), so I will install that and reset and see what happens.

    Next logical step seems to be to replace the charcoal canister. Where is that exactly? There is a large round black part that is on the firewall on the drivers side but none of the vac hoses go to that, and there is a brake reservoir attached to that as well so I'm not sure if that is it. Does anyone have a picture or description of where it is? A part number for the canister would be very helpful.

    Also, is there a kit you can buy to replace all of the vac hoses or do you have to just but the individual hoses.

    Thanks, Dave

    The dealer had to replace mine at about 6 months and 6,000 miles. I have no idea where it is though.

    It's right between the fuel tank and the muffler.
