Vent solenoid location on a 2003 sunfire


On a 2002 Sunfire, the fuel vapor canister purge solenoid (AKA canister vent solenoid) is between the engine and the firewall, up high near the hood. It's a black box with two hose or fuel vapor line ports going toward the passenger side and one toward the driver side. One of the passenger side hoses goes to the vapor canister.

Vapor canister location


In my 2002 GP the vapor canister is located in the front passenger fender if I remember right. It's easiest to get at by removing some of the screws holding the wheel well shroud. The purge solenoid was located between the engine and firewall near the top of the engine.

1999 Pontiac grand am se, what is the purge valve?


A purge valve is a solenoid valve that is opened by a computer to pull the fuel vapors out of the charcoal bead filled canister that stores them, This is called the fuel evaporative emission system. It is located under the car near the fuel tank behind the driver wheel well I think.

Ford escort wagon 1997 code p1443 displayed. what does this indicate & where is the cannister? thank you.


P1443 - EVAP Control System / Vacuum System Purge Control Solenoid Or Purge Control Valve Fault. A fuel tank pressure change greater than minus (-) 7 inches of water in 30 seconds occurred with a purge (fuel vapor) flow at less than 0.02 pounds per minute.

Possible Causes:
  • Blocked fuel vapor hose between the EVAP canister purge valve and the FTP sensor.
  • Blocked fuel vapor hose between the EVAP canister purge valve and the engine intake manifold.
  • Blocked vacuum hose between the EVAP canister purge valve solenoid and the engine intake manifold.
  • EVAP canister purge valve stuck closed (mechanically).

  • Possible Solution:
    Check for blockages between the fuel tank, the EVAP canister purge valve, and the engine intake manifold. Check for obstructions in the EVAP canister purge valve diaphragm and ports.

    The canister is on the passengers side near the firewall if I recall correctly.

    Code says evaporator purge solenoid


    Which code specifically? Do not assume you need a new solenoid. Our recommendation will depend on the specific code and some troubleshooting results. I usually recommend checking over all the EVAP vacuum lines and the gas cap too whenever there is a purge valve code. Check the vacuum lines at the cannister in the left rear bumper. I will paste info on the purge solenoid below.

    Evaporative Emission Purge Solenoid

    Description & Operation
    The duty cycle EVAP canister purge solenoid (DCP) regulates the rate of vapor flow from the EVAP canister to the intake manifold. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) operates the solenoid.
    During the cold start warm-up period and the hot start time delay, the PCM does not energize the solenoid. When de-energized, no vapors are purged. The PCM de-energizes the solenoid during open loop operation.
    The engine enters closed loop operation after it reaches a specified temperature and the time delay ends. During closed loop operation, the PCM cycles (energizes and de-energizes) the solenoid 5 or 10 times per second, depending upon operating conditions. The PCM varies the vapor flow rate by changing solenoid pulse width. Pulse width is the amount of time that the solenoid is energized. The PCM adjusts solenoid pulse width based on engine operating condition.
    Removal & Installation
    The duty cycle evaporative (EVAP) canister purge solenoid is located in the engine compartment near the brake master cylinder.

    1. Disconnect electrical connector at solenoid.
    2. Disconnect vacuum lines at solenoid.
    3. Lift solenoid slot from mounting bracket for Removal & Installation.

    To Install:
    1. Position solenoid slot to mounting bracket.
    2. Connect vacuum lines to solenoid. Be sure vacuum lines are firmly connected and not leaking or damaged. If leaking, a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) may be set with certain emission packages.
    3. Connect electrical connector to solenoid.

    My 1996 grand am ,pontiac fail inspection due to evap emission caister purge solenoid where is that located and what is it?


    Here's a site to view what the part looks like, it's about $40. This info is assuming you have the 3.1 V-6, not sure if you have the 4 cyl. There is a charcoal canister that stores gas vapors so they won't be released into the atmosphere. These stored vapors are diverted to be burned by the engine. A defective purge solenoid valve won't allow the vapors to be burned, and the canister will eventually fill with gas. I changed one some time ago, and don't remember too well the procedure, but I believe it's just 1 or 2 bolts mounted on the upper engine area, I think it's on one of the valve covers, and a plug in (electrical). When you purchase the part, the parts store should be able to tell you the exact location. I remember the canister itself is under the coolant recovery tank. If you can see it (I seem to remember it was hidden) you can try to follow connections to the purge solenoid valve. Hope this helps, sorry to be somewhat vague, it's been a while since I changed it!
