Asked by Jan 28, 2016 at 05:48 PM about the 2011 Ford Edge SEL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2011 Ford Edge light came on. My mechanic said something about it need an e-vac or something. He said the machine was expensive and they don't have one. He hooked the car up to the electronic machine and this is what it showed. My car has a little over 100,000 miles on it. I had the spark plugs changed and the light is off now but it will probably come back on soon as it has twice before.

The EVAP system absorbs the gas fumes that evaporate from your gas tank. Here is a generic diagram of an EVAP system.

Go to another mechanic. To find a small EVAP system leak you'll need to have a smoke test done. Many shops have the capability to do this test. HTH. -Jim
