Evap Canister unavailable?

A friend has begun to experience the fuel smell from the back of the car on hot days problem. My belief is that this is due to a problem with the Evap Canister not functioning correctly.

I went looking for one and found that they are UNAVAILABLE. Out of stock with no promise date for when they will be back in stock. So I went looking for alternative parts sources. Found an ACDelco part but guess what. Out of Stock. Found an alternative after market part at Autozone. Unavailable. Found an alternative at Rock Auto. Unavailable.

So far I have ordered from four different sources and all came back unavailable.

I bought a used/new one from Amazon with the intent to either use it as is if its functional or rebuild it if it is not.

anyone know of a source for the Evap Canister?

At the rate these parts availability issues are popping up, I'm tempted to buy a wrecked car and shove it behind the barn to use as a source of spare parts.

I'm guessing this is one of the few parts that isn't shared with other cars?

Edit


Rob, are you searching for the LNF or LE5? My local Autozone said (verbally) they can get them, but it's a duralast part for $175. I've found that, from time to time, parts are not correctly indexed and searching for the parts for the NA will yield more parts than the GXP will, even thought he part in question is interchangeable.

Blue-ish 2006 2.4, Werks stage 1 turbo, Borla cat-back, DDM braces, Spec aluminum flywheel, Spec stage 2 clutch, Werks aluminum radiator, some gauges, RKSport hood, Morimoto FX-Rs, GReddy Profec, Norm's fenders

'07 GXP, RPM Stage 2, Solocatless downpipe, TCE Wilwood 6 piston front brakes, 4-piston rears , Stainless brake lines, slotted/drilled rotors, BC Racing BR coilovers, Performance Autowerks intercooler, DDMWorks CAI, charge pipes and braces

According to my research they use the same part number for all cars.
I did an online look at Autozone for the Duralast part and it came up out of stock.

But I did the search against Solstice generic. What part number was your Duralast canister?

This is what I get when I try to order it

Sorry, at least one of the special order items in your cart is no longer available. The item is highlighted below. Please remove the item or adjust the quantity before proceeding to checkout.

Part Number: VC4284

Yes. I ordered one but it shows two weeks plus delivery so not sure if they actually have one

The "used" like new unit I ordered from Amazon showed up. It appears to in fact be new and perfect

Rob-having no idea what this looks like, does it appear to be something that could be disassembled and rebuilt?

2007 2.4L N/A. Stock + some pretty crap.

It is a sealed plastic unit but I think the answer is yes

I found a replacement part that is available.
ACDelco 215-573 GM Original Equipment Vapor Canister without Vent Valve Solenoid

It's the HHR canister. They are nearly identical parts. The HHR part has a metal bracket over the top that is easily removed and two additional mounting tans. One needs to be cut off, the other moved to retain the solenoid valve properly. But other than that they are identical

I need to check the valve on Dave's car as that may be the problem and not the canister

I was wondering where it was located, on top of the gas tank, and the reason for the Mayan Temple.
