    Smog Pump!!!!

    Do our UK cars have a smog pump, as I need to know because I'm hopping to be testing a Beta FMIC for a US company but need to know if we have one like the US cars?

    I gather it is the charcoal canister that absorbs the fuel vapours and burns them as the engine warms up. It is an emissions feature.

    Anybody shed any light on this [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    I think the charcoal canister is indeed under the drivers side wing, and the fumes are allowed into the inlet manifold under certain conditions determined by the ECU,which opens a valve.
    I think the engine needs to be at operating temp and not idling,but it was a while ago I read it!

    Ask them for a P/N of the thing they are talking about, and check if you have one that way.
