I checked all the fuel hoses again and didn't find any blockages. Tanks is venting fine.

What I have discovered is that a couple of vac hoses were in the places, ie; tube for canister and tube for distributor were around the wrong way. Would that be causing any probs?

sure
the canister has up to 3 hoses.
one is a vent.

your photo is a carb. you have a carb>?

1989 Vitara Hardtop & 1991 Vitara Softtop

what country,
the car has many vacuum and vent lines.
the vent system is a closed system.
there are only 4 ways to fix it, maybe 4/
1: long hard inspections, of all hoses and for rust on parts that cause leaks. (if you disclose body tag , i can send vacuum map, but you never even said country ,much less a tag.)
2: vacuum leak down tests and tricks to find the leak.
3: pressure testing, same... ways.
4: smoke test machine. (a DIY machine is easy to make and is all over youtube, the ways and means,,,,)

the tank, is not free venting. (smog,etc reasons.)
it sends fumes to the charcoal canister. (see vent pipe)
the medium inside the CAN soaks up these fumes.
then when you start the car , the Induction system sucks the fumes from the canister and then burns them. preventing smog and nasty fumes.

the parts must be good, and fitted right.
on some cars. the CAN has 3 tubes.
1 is intake.
2 is induction ( vacuum)
3: is a vent.

i will now guess at country and at your cars market code. ill guess, drum roll......... code 24 Australia...... over 33 markets..
ill assume its not made by santana (spain)
ill assume its a carb model there are 4 evap systems just for this year and market. 1 is EFI. , 3 are carbs.

in the offical book they show 3 carb canisters, and unlike the EFI version
each has 3 nipples
here is the map. (hose map)




if you need tank map, can do that too. but no country or market code or tag, its just me guessing......

post 2
if its a carb?
carbs can leak, many a way. they are INFAMOUS leaker's and car fire devices. (have stats to prove that)
it too has vents. that can leak,
the float can stick and cause leaks.
are you running a stock air cleaner? or some CAI monster? no photos so must speculate. here..


one more point
bad fuel filling can cause the CANistor to get raw fuel.
like manically topping off the fuel tank, not letting the island pump do its job.
that causes the canister to overload
and will stink and cause rich running,, after start..
also the canister might be just , bad. some do.

some guys, recharge them. . (on classic cars this practice is common)

Thanks again XXX. I'm located in Australia and I've changed my profile settings, so hopefully you'll be able to send me the vacuum map now.

I'm suspecting from your suggestions that it may be the canister is overloading as it does stink and seems to run rich. I think I'll get a replacement canister and see if that helps.

my gosh, my tin foil hat tuned that in MAte !

lots of ways to get fumes on this carb car.
not easy to find , at all with out pressure testing, or other ways.
the above is vacuum.
i can get the tank lines too but is pretty boring.
the tank has 2 fuel lines, fuel out and return
and vent.
there are 3 drawings, related, the above, fuel and vent drawings.
ill see if I can post the vent side. ah, here..

good luck finding, mr. stinky

part 14 (vapor sep tank) keeps liquid fuel out of the canister.
turn the canister up side, down, if liquid fuel dont run out, its good to run (assuming no rust in the canister tank)

you could also disconnect hose 22 and drive a bit to see if smell moves to the rear.
