Canister Close Valve caused a CEL!!
Well we all know about those pesky canister close valves! Mine went bad and caused a cell when I left the dealership Friday for the o2 ECU recall. When I took it back today he said the canister close valve was sticking so they replaced it. What the hell does the canister close valve do? It made the CEL go away so I am happy.
BTW, that was my first trip to the dealer since I bought the car over a year ago. I thought for sure I voided my warranty! After the ECU flash the parts department manager and the mechanic wanted to speak to me, I thought oh great here it goes! Well they just wanted to tell me that my car looked great, he loved all the mods and wanted to know what all I had done to it. He said he was worried that I had reprogrammed the ECU and said that if I did I should check to see if it erased anything when he updated it. The parts manager said that he has been doing some mods to his tiburon as well and wanted to know some places to buy parts, etc!
My ECU must have been doing a crappy job of reading the o2 sensors before the reflash because it runs great now! This has been such a reliable car so far!
Mods: seafoam: +487whp, pulstar plugs: +914.3whp
