2006 Acura TSX 6MT
So my engine light came on the other day while driving, got it diagnosed and pulled a DTC P2422, which is caused by a malfunction with the vent shut valve.
I'm not sure where the vent shut valve is located exactly, but if I am correct, I believe it is the part labelled #2 in this diagram: Discount Honda and Acura parts and accessories - OEM Acura Parts
I did some research and some people say that this problem is caused by a spider's nest blockage somewhere along parts labelled #2, 10, 12, 14, or 20. I decided to get my hands dirty and take a look. After removing the entire EVAP canister, I checked all the hoses and nothing was blocked (couldn't really see inside part #20 though).
Other research indicated that by replacing parts #1 and #2, the problem will be fixed. But for others, it didn't solve the problem. So I decided to do some troubleshooting before I spend any money.
I came across this: http://www.justanswer.com/uploads/cr...22pinpoint.pdf
so I decided to try it out.
When I turned the ignition to II, I didn't see the valve move at all, is it supposed to move while in ignition II? (the above tutorial doesn't specify what's supposed to happen)
I then disassembled part #2, took out what I believe to be the vent shut valve, and it didn't seem to be damaged or anything (pics below)
Now I'm stuck, I can't tell if the vent shut valve is busted (if it even IS the vent shut valve. looks like its fine though) or if the vent shut valve is actually inside the canister and therefore needs replacing :donno:
Is there anyone that can verify my identification of parts? Anyone solve this problem already?
Left (Canister), Right (Dust Filter - vent shut valve inside?)
I think that piece I pulled out is the vent shut valve
There is a moving valve in the center, you can see the botton of it right in the middle there
And there's the top of the moving valve part in the center
