People who say "Not a problem" instead of "You're welcome".
Jack In The Crack used to have a good deep fried burrito. Recently they've gotten rid of the Monster Taco too.
Engine light came on on my 2009 Honda Odyssey. Rodents chewed through an emissions line going to the gas tank.
Replace the line? Shouldn't be too much. Right?
The whole gas tank has to be replaced. $3100.00 for a new tank. Or $1300.00 for a used one.
Quoted from bssbllr:
Have you checked a different mechanic. I’m not really sure why a chewed through plastic external line would need a gas tank. I think those lines you could probably order from the parts store or dealer. Also I found this on eBay seems a lot cheaper then 1300.[quoted image]
Here's a question for professional mechanics. I do not have a state emissions test due until 2021. I expect to get a new vehicle before that time comes.
Is it safe to drive my van the way it is until that time? In the next few months I plan on driving to the York and Houston shows. Do I have anything to worry about if I do not get this fixed right away?
Quoted from o-din:
If it is a vapor leak only, many people aren't fixing them. To pass smog they just reset the computer or disconnect the battery to make the light go out and then drive it enough so all but the evap monitor is ready. Evap is usually the last and hardest monitor to get ready and that is the one that is allowed to be incomplete and still pass the inspection. At least here. But we are allowed to do the inspection for other states.
They just added a new rule for 2010 and newer that it will also fail for a P code which is supposedly not erased when the computer is reset. So far I have not seen one fail for that.
Quoted from o-din:
My pleasure! I've helped advise a few how to get around the evap code already with 100% results. I hate seeing that light on in my own vehicles though. But I'm rolling Toyotas so it rarely happens.
Some cover it with tape. Others put a picture of a loved one in front of it. And even others just let it glow until the bulb burns out.
The dash light is out now. I suppose they reset it. I just cancelled the repair. It's a month or so to the York show so we'll see what happens during that time.
My bitch is over. Thanks guys!
