Question about 2001 Buick LeSabre

Evaporative Emission Control System

I am trying to locate the purge valve on the evaporative emission control system. The car has a rough idle and a rough acceleration. There is a misfire code when I have diagnostics run on it. When I plug the hole on the canister the idle smoothes out.

The evap canister has a valve on it check the pigtail on the valve and make sure its plugged in good . there is a fuse for it as well . if the fuse is good and the plug is tight . replace valve . Its common for these to go bad .

First thing to check is the gas cap, make certain it is tight and the cap seal is not damaged or cut. In many cases this is the root cause for the P0455.
If that checks good, you want to check the vacuum hoses from the EVAP purge solenoid under the hood, all the way back to the EVAP canister. Make certain all are connected and not damaged or cracked.
Let me know.

It is built onto the fuel pump. You can access the fuel pump in the trunk under the carpet. Remove the bolts from the rectangular cover and it is the black sensor pushed into the fuel pump housing.

Use a hollow tube and put it up to your ear and place it on the emission parts such as the vacuum tubes when the car is running and you may be able to hear the leak. Then you can fix it.

I have a truck that popped up a P0443 code up and I've been trying to see what it is so I can get it fixed thank yo


P0443 - Evaporative Emission Control System Purge Control Valve Circuit Malfunction

Possible causes: - Faulty Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Purge Solenoid Control
- Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Purge Solenoid Control harness is open or shorted
- Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Purge Solenoid Control circuit poor electrical connection

When is the code detected? An improper voltage signal is sent to Engine Control Module (ECM) through the valve.
Possible symptoms: - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
P0443 Description: The Evaporative Emission System (EVAP) canister purge volume control solenoid valve uses a ON/OFF duty to control the flow rate of fuel vapor from the EVAP canister. The EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve is moved by ON/OFF pulses from the Engine Control Module (ECM). The longer the ON pulse, the greater the amount of fuel vapor that will flow through the valve.

    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.

    What does po440 on a 2003 saturn vue mean with a service engine soon light on


    That is a problem in the evaporative emission control system.
    Could be anything causing it
    Clogged filter in the charcoal canister
    A leak in one of the vacuum lines
    The purge valve not working,,,etc.
    The best thing is to take it and have it checked out, they might have to do a smoke test to find the problem.
    All they do is inject smoke into the system, if there is a leak the smoke will come out of it. All it takes is a pin hole in these emission systems to screw it all up.

    ---
    At least the cap isn't loose for the gas tank.

    I would clear the code with an OBD-II Scanner 'erase code' button, and see how long it takes for it to come back.
