Hyundai Tucson: Emission control system - Emission control systems - Hyundai Tucson Owner's ManualHyundai Tucson: Emission control system

Your Hyundai is equipped with an emission control system to meet all requirements of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency or California Air Resources Board. There are three emission control systems which are as follows.

(1) Crankcase emission control system. (2) Evaporative emission control system. (3) Exhaust emission control system.

In order to assure the proper function of the emission control systems, it is recommended that you have your car inspected and maintained by an authorized Hyundai dealer in accordance with the maintenance schedule in this manual.

Caution for the Inspection and Maintenance Test (V6 Vehicle with Traction Control System)

o To prevent the vehicle from misfiring during dynamometer testing, disconnect the ABS connector in the engine compartment. (2.7 V6 only). o For more information, see shop manual (Wheel Speed Sensor). o After dynamometer testing is completed, erase the ABS/TCS DTC (Diagnotic Trouble Code) with a GST (Generic Scan Tool) or Hi-Scan Pro.

1. Crankcase Emission Control System

The positive crankcase ventilation system is employed to prevent air pollution caused by blow-by gases being emitted from the crankcase. This system supplies filtered air to the crankcase through the air intake hose. Inside the crankcase, the fresh air mixes with blow-by gases, which then pass through the PCV valve and into the induction system.

2. Evaporative Emission Control (Including ORVR: Onboard Refueling Vapor Recovery) System

The Evaporative Emission Control System is designed to prevent fuel vapors from escaping into the atmosphere. (The ORVR system is designed to allow the vapors from the fuel tank to be loaded into a canister while refueling at the gas station, preventing the escape of fuel vapors into the atmosphere.)

Canister

Fuel vapors generated inside the fuel tank are absorbed and stored in the canister. When the engine is running, the fuel vapors absorbed in the canister are drawn into the induction system through the purge control solenoid valve.

Purge Control Solenoid Valve (PCSV)

The purge control solenoid valve is controlled by the Engine Control Module (ECM); when the engine coolant temperature is low during idling, the PCSV closes so that evaporated fuel is not taken into the engine. After the engine warmsup during ordinary driving, the PCSV opens to introduce evaporated fuel to the engine.

3. Exhaust Emission Control System

The Exhaust Emission Control System is a highly effective system which controls exhaust emissions while maintaining good vehicle performace.
