YELLOW SAC SPIDER BLOCKING VENTING OF FUEL TANK YELLOW SAC SPIDER BUILT NEST IN EVAP SYSTEM CAUSING BLOCKAGE AND TRIGGERING A DTC CODE P2422 (EVAP CANNISTER VENT SHUT VALVE CLOSE MALFUNCTION). THIS PROBLEM HAS BEEN AN ISSUE FOR 2008 AND 2009 HONDA ACCORDS AND A TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN 08-087 HAD BEEN ISSUED TO DEALERS. OTHER CAR MANUFACTURERS, NOTABLY MAZDA AND TOYOTA, ISSUED RECALLS TO DEAL WITH YELLOW SAC SPIDER PROBLEMS. HONDA TREATED IT AS A WARRANTY ISSUE AND MIGHT MAKE A PARTIAL PAYMENT FOR OUT OF WARRANTY CLAIMS. THE FIX IS TO INSTALL A SPRING IN THE VALVE TO PREVENT SPIDER NESTS. A BLOCKED VENT LINE CAN CAUSE EXCESSIVE PRESSURE IN THE GAS TANK LEADING TO LEAKAGES OR WORSE. UNLESS A SPRING IS INSTALLED, ANY HONDA ACCORD MODEL YEARS 2008 AND 2009 CAN HAVE THIS PROBLEM. YELLOW SAC SPIDERS ARE FOUND IN 49 STATES, CANADA AND MEXICO.
