Charcoal canister overflowed while not running for several days, started right up but after a few blocks stalled. Started right up but continues to stall after a short distance. Replaced stock inline fuel filter and vacuum line that leads to canister. Still starts right up but stalls after short distances.

Hello,

The charcoal canister has a valve on top that sounds like it has failed. This will pull raw gas into the engine and make it stall after a short time.

Please let us know what you find so it will help others.

Best, Ken

Take it to a repair shop that has a smoke machine that can help find very small leaks in the EVAP system.
