Took a great road trip. Nothing beats getting on the road for a long ride, with good music and good snacks to clear my head and do some thinking. Nothing better.

Happy New Year all. May this be the best one yet. Can't wait to see where the road leads me...

Hey everyone.   I just put a VX muffler on my truck.   I know they're Flowmaster copies but it was $30 less and I'm pretty happy so far.   There should be a law banning stock mufflers on V8 engines lol.

Glad to hear it's just a bad censor. Just put tape over it and forget it. LOL!!

Sensor, whoops.

Hey guys. Turns out the problem is just a bad censor. The people I've talked to say I don't have to replace it if I don't want to. I'm thinking about doing it anyways because the check engine light is getting to be very annoying.

Kevin,
The fuel tank works by maintaining a slight pressure within. Your EVAP control leak means that there is a leak within the system that doesn't allow for the needed pressure build up. That means the problem could be in the fuel tank, fuel tank cap, charcoal canister, thermo vacuum valve or ported vacuum purge port. I am believing with you that it is something inexpensive and easy to fix. Google EVAP for tips on fixing it yourself. It could be any one of the afore mentioned five things.

Let us know what transpires.

I bought an 05 Dodge Ram 1500 a bout a month ago and now the check engine light is on. I took it to Auto Zone and the computer said EVAP control large leak detected. I got a new gas cap but that hasn't worked. It also said there could be a problem with a loose hose or something called a vacuum solenoid. If it's anything more then an oil change or spark plugs, it's to the point where I don't know what I'm doing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My 1993 F-150 is in sad shape and nothing as nice looking as y'all have, but it gets me to work, and helps me haul supplies from Lowes and Home Depot.

Barron marriage?

How long would you last in a marriage with a wife who always said no? And by no I think you KNOW what I'm talking about. With me it has been years of once every three months to nothing at all. I have to find the courage to finally do something about it. Like contacting a lawyer.See More
