2007 Land cruiser, 100 series
PostPosted: Wed Jul 26, 2017 11:24 pm
Hi guys,
I have a problem when we drive off road to high elevation (10- 11,000 ft) the car is loosing power and then turn off and wont start again until I open the engine hood and disconnect the fuel hose from the fuel filter and then there is a lot of air pressure released...
I re-connect the hose to the filter and the car will start again.
Any idea what to do so its never happen again???
Please see the attached photo.
Thank you all.

This is likely the evaporative canister issue. This emissions device is designed to scrub fuel vapors and can sometimes get fuel in it, becomes clogged and causes these issues.

Replace the canister - It's actually common.
