    Hey guys. Got a question fer ya. This part has been mystifying me for some time. The canister looking thing that has the hoses clamped onto it on both sides. Cant find any info on it in the manual or my Haynes manual. My truck is a 2008 4.0 TRD SR5 4X4. Thanks for any input.

    Think it's some type of fuel vapor canister, I took mine off to have a look and it's just a hollow plastic container. "Vacuum Surge Tank" is what Toyota calls it.

    Any idea what it does and does it need replacing at a certain mileage?

    I doubt it, like I said it's just a hollow plastic container it has nothing inside. Unless it breaks or battery acid damages the plastic (this happened to me), I don't see the need to replace it.
