    It's probably the valve. Ebay. Get one for like 50 bucks with 20k on it. Be good for another 144.

    Just pull the canister, blow it out with an air hose, do the same with the solenoid, douche the solenoid with WD40, and reassemble..... if you haven’t done it yet, run a piece of 1/2 inch hose and a push in filter behind the DS tail light, and call it a couple years before you have to do it again.

    I hate that code, but it’s not hard to fix......

    If your gas tank is hard to fill, you’re about to get that code..... kind of a pre warning.

    Last time the solenoid had spider webs inside it.. for reasons it did not open or close.. dam bugs.

    Will get spray some Insect spray in that Channel, that was to be the FSU fix for the issue.. ugh.. hmmm gas tanking fill burp.. Since Oregon has Chimp that fills tanks WHile I stay cozy in my seat.. going to listen for the Nozzle burp & Take note.

    That solenoid fills with dust, and that causes it to stick. When you fill up, the canister can't vent, and that causes the gas pump to shut of prematurely. When you start the rig, that solenoid is charged and closes, and the system checks for pressure. That's why ya gotta run the the vent hose up behind the tail light, and put a filter on it.

    It's a simple fix, unfortunately Nissan never did figure that one out.

    @Prime do you feel like sharing the part # for the front turn signals on the bumper?

    That's complicated.


    They're listed as no longer available on Amazon. But they're still available on the Canadian site.

    Dude. That's pretty cool looking right there.
    Did you use the stock wiring or have to build it? I remember you saying something about harnesses somewhere..

    Mine is on too. It went off when crossing a stream a few weeks back. I haven't gotten around to resetting it or cleaning out the canister yet. Someday... soon... (-ish). :D

    No the rears are tied directly to the turn signal wire. So they flash at the same time.

    Yes I know it could probably be patched and they still have some life in them BUT hers is the xterra we drive most often with our 1YO baby so new tires is well worth the piece of mind with winter coming up.

    Actually that's too close to the shoulder to be patched. If you did it yourself you'd probably be fine, but no shop I know of would patch that.
