The company’s Technical Services team produced the video using a Camry LE model that had failed an emissions test as a result of a PO446 code, which indicates that a leak was detected while activating the vacuum switch valve (VSV) during an EVAP monitor test.

To avoid this expensive purchase when possible, the Wells team demonstrates how to remove and bench test the canister and VSV.
