Newbie Forum - Beginner/newbie/general DSM modification questions. First mods, how to run 10's when you haven't run 12's yet, any tech question that doesn't fit in another tech forum.
take a look at the condition of the elbow and see whats going on.
im assuming this flapper might be clogged shut. to check this you should remove the rubber hose that connects the tank to the fuel feed pipe. at the end of the pipe you can inspect this flapper:
notice how I am pulling one flapper out to show you how it works. and the other picture is it closed. so what im saying is that your valve might have corroded shut or some foreign matter clogging it.
that was going to be my next educated guess .
Hey, we've all been there. Which is why I tend to not drink and work on vehicles a much anymore.
Edit: Thinking about it, I think you guys have the canister up in front of the driver side front wheel, so the vent valve would probably be up there.
. Good luck man and let us know if you figure it o

Thank you born2tune!!! the vid wouldn't load at first so I couldn't see the it. I didn't realize the flapper was before the rubber hose, I thought it was after.
Took off the filler neck and there is no flapper. It's on the tank side after the rubber hose. I take it I have to drop the tank to get to it???
Im unaware of variances between gsx and gst as far as the filler neck goes or year/build date variation at that.(I know the differences of the tank it self but not filler neck).
You dont have to drop the tank just remove the filler neck, the hose and that should leave you with the neck of the tank, inspect that and go from there. the flapper should be able to wiggle off.
Im sure its something simple being overlooked.
3 of the evap hoses were melted shut.
The 3 melted lines. They don't look melted but the insides were.
Just read that the 99 tank (aka mine) has the evap canister in the tank. I'm going to cap those and cut off the rest of the random stuff on the filler neck. born2tune, can you take a few pics or vid of where the fuel cutoff goes into the filler neck please??? Mine was not connected to anything and melted shut. I think the previous owner ran it open exhaust at the axle and melted a few hoses.
well i thought we had deleted all of the evap equipment on this car but i guess we only deleted the solenoid and vaccum lines in the engine bay. as for all of this crap thats at the back of the car, what can be done to delete as much of it as possible. what needs to be capped? removed? vented? also if anyone has Sam's number at RRE, it would be much appreciated. hahaha pm me if you have it. he tuned the car magnificently and just need to know if he tuned out the evap from the car.
typically its one of the first things turned off when tuning with DSMlink correct?
i guess i should state that before we put the car down for 5 months it still was a PITA to fill the tank, when pulling the trigger on the gas gun, you could only hold it for a couple seconds and then it would kick back, however fuel would still go into the car, now gas wouldnt even go into the tank unless you squeezed the filler neck rubber hose before the tank. i'm guessing the melted shut lines prevented the air to escape from the tank while the tank was being filled with fuel.
so what do i do to properly vent the tank so i can fill it up, and how do i delete evap canister and weird smog crap that goes with it?
