  • What is this - how does it work ? (library)

    HI All,

    This is just a high level blue thinking idea - a discussion topic

    What do you lot think about a library ? - I know we have a search engine but, its like all search engines haphazard and time consuming.

    What if, within the forum, we made a librery of parts (under subheadings) giving say what it does, how it works, if it goes wrong what happens etc etc etc.

    I'm really up for knowledge sharing, I don't profess to have much but what I've got I will gladly share - If it benefits someone else - great

    So, what do you think ?

    To start with I'll start it up with a question - what the hell is this thing ? - what does it do ? -

    Moderators/ site owners - can this library be accomodated ?

    Charcoal canister I think. Stores fuel vapour from the tank vent and puts it into the intake when you next start the car.
    May not be though... It was behind the bumper on my 1.6.

    Library's not a bad idea, there's a tutorials section that pretty much covers it though. Although there isn't much there yet.

      HI Danny,

      yeah I heard that name charcol cannister - I was lost - lol....

      knowledge is power - why do I want fuel vapour in my intake ? - I don't expect you to answer - just thats the next question

      Keep the comments coming

        If the fuel tank wasn't vented then it would pressurise and potentially become dangerous. But venting it to atmosphere obviously has it's own problems. By venting it into the charcoal, which absorbs the vapour, it's then released into the engine and burnt off instead of just being vented out.

        That's my understanding of it, I may be wrong though.

            Tag cloud springs to mind. Easier to incorporate into a forum and would do much the same thing.

              Unless this gets a resounding response from the majority of the community, I'm more than happy leaving everything as is and relying on the tutorials sections and the search features/thread prefixes etc.

                Is a tag cloud an easy add on for vbulletin?? Might be worth a weeks trial. Hardly difficult for people to tag their own posts with relevant ones as long as it doesn't get silly.

                  What does this do? The tube itself comes apart and let's out gas if you accidentally pull it. It's like it's cut in two on the end it's clipped on to.

                  Goes into front of engine as looking into bay.

                  Edit. It splits into two and not sure if this meant to happen or not. Or what it is.

                    Looks like part of the ac system.

                        My experience from tags on threads in the past indicates that people will definitely get silly. Lol
