Where can I find my charcoal canister I think it has a leak

My car has 158000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

The charcoal canister on your car is in the upper rear fender. If you suspect there may be a leak, you may also want to inspect the nylon lines and rubber hoses that are part of this system as well as they are often times the culprit in leaks like this.
