Apart from changing many things 02 sensor,map sensor ect.. on my ED I6 auto I am still getting 300k's per tank
and a fuel smell in the cabin. A ford technician told me perhaps the carbon canistor is buggered (which is common apparently)..Does anyone know where to get these from aftermarket or can one be sourced from say a EF/EL/AU?

Cheers!

Ian the service tech at Ford Springwood said they will check the reg when I bring it in..
He was very helpful and more than willing to explain about cleaning the throttle body ect.. .Unlike the service place near Mt Gravatt...
