Well, after I did a search here's what I came up with:

Possible causes:

EVAP canister purge outlet tube (EVAP canister purge valve to EVAP canister) blockages or kinks.
EVAP canister tube (fuel tank to EVAP canister) blockages or kinks.
Fuel vapor elbow on EVAP canister contaminated.
Restricted EVAP canister.
Canister vent (CV) solenoid stuck closed (partially or fully).
Plugged or contaminated CV solenoid filter.
EVAP canister purge valve stuck open.
Fuel filler cap stuck closed (no vacuum relief).
VREF circuit open in fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor.
Damaged FTP sensor.

The purge canister seemed to be the culprit in most cases, but not all. It is located on the passenger side wheel well.

Go for it!

Joe

It's not a 97 Sport, it just looks like one!

EGR tubes. Not sure where they go on a mark, but on a bird they go to the passenger side under the coil pack.

I love my V8, but I'd love it more if all 8 cylinders worked. (they do now)

My T-bird is like George Jetson's wife, you try to give her a little money, she takes the whole wallet.

That diagram on the fender will tell you where it goes.
