What are the chances my canister doesn't work? Is there a way to check? MUD can be so confusing with trying to answer simple questions like this, and since I figured somebody here probably knows the answer.

The top two should be #1 atmosphere and #2 from the VSV purge valve. The bottom will be a drain. Are you sure the one on the top is blocked or is it a check valve? Charcoal canisters are emission required but all they do is allow purging of excessive fuel vapors from the fuel tank.
