Hyundai Tucson: Evaporative Emission Control System - Description
The Evaporative Emission Control System prevents fuel vapor stored in fuel tank from vaporizing into the atmosphere. When the fuel evaporates in the fuel tank, the vapor passes through vent hoses or tubes to a canister filled with charcoal.
The canister temporarily holds the vapor in the charcoal. The ECM will control the system in order to draw the gathered vapor into the combustion chambers during certain operating conditions. Engine manifold vacuum is used to draw the vapor into intake manifold.
The Canister is filled with charcoal and absorbs evaporated fuel vapor from the fuel tank. The gathered fuel vapor in canister is drawn into the intake manifold by the ECM/PCM when appropriate conditions are set.
Purge Control Solenoid Valve (PCSV)
The Purge control solenoid valve (PCSV) is installed in the passage connecting the canister to the intake manifold. It is a duty type solenoid valve and is operated by ECM/PCM signal.
To draw the absorbed vapor into the intake manifold, the ECM/PCM will open the PCSV, otherwise the passage remains closed.
Fuel Filler Cap
A ratchet tightening device in the threaded fuel filler cap reduces the chances of incorrect installation, when sealing the fuel filler. After the gasket on the fuel filler cap and the fill neck flange make contact, the ratchet produces a loud clicking noise indicating the seal has been set.
