    Its below your fuses in your engine bay but the only really good way to get at it is to remove your splash guard on the driver side front wheel well, and you will see it on the left side when your looking at the suspension.

    Na I have pulled my gas tank two time to replace my fule pump and its not on the gas tank, on my 98 Trans Am its under the driver side engine bay fuses. It should be the same for your car to I would think.

    not sure could be for the LT1 but I have never taken out a LT1's gas tank so im not really sure, I just know that mine is not there, i'll try to find some more info on it for you.

    No its not visable but I just went to autozone.com to their repair guides and found some info that will help (I went on there thinking well this will be a wast of time but I guess I was wrong) check this out >>>>Evaporative Emission Controls<<<<< Read it carefully it should help

    I took a look at mine when I was bleeding my brakes and its in the Left Rear wheel well just a plastic splash guard at the back of the wheel well it comes out with a couple of fasteners and you have access to it. You can reach into the wheel well at the back and feel it.
