    How often should these be changed out? What are the signs of it being bad? I have about 197k on my FJ60 and i believe that charcoal canister is stock.

    Thanks

    I don't think they are a service part, ,meaning unless its bad then don't replace it.

    The only way to kill it that i've heard of is to have liquid gas flow into it. There are a couple of check valves in the top that might get stuck open. The emissions book covers the testing of the can.
