The EVAP Purge valve on my 2003 Caravan is located under the car just behind the transmission in front of the front evap cannister (there are two cannisters on my car connected by a hose). It kind of looks like a black plastic EGR valve, but a bit bigger. I also had a vacuum leak. I found a ripped hose, replaced it, and still get the same code. I'm on the verge of getting a smoke test. Very aggravating. I tested my purge valve by removing it and applyiing vacuum. Was told that if it holds vacuum for 10 seconds it's good.

SOURCE: changing spark plugs

as you know the front ones are rather easy to get to, but the rear bank is a bear..the best way is on a lift but you can get to them using a 3/8 rachet a 3inch extension and the plug socket.. take the air tube off the throttle body.. reach under the throttle body behind the engine you will feel the plug wires that way.. once you get the wires off the plugs are a pain but changable..

SOURCE: how do i program 2003 dodge carvan key fob

ATTENTION: You MUST HAVE one working remote to add one more to the system.
If you do not have one working remote right now then these instructions will not work.

remote for you.

Click here to find an Automotive Locksmith in your area to program this remote.

1. Press LOCK button 5 times at 2 second intervals to resynchronize remote.
2. Insert key into the ignition switch. Turn ignition to the RUN position (as far as you can
go without cranking engine). Wait for ignition chimes to stop.

3. Using the working remote, press and hold the UNLOCK button on the remote for 4 to 10

4. Within the specified 4 to 10 seconds, continue pressing the UNLOCK button and then
press the PANIC button ( on the programmed remote ) for 1 second and release both
buttons. A chime will sound to indicate that the remote programming mode has been
entered ( allow 3 seconds for chime to sound ).

5. Within 30 seconds of the chime, press and release the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons
simultaneously then press and release just the UNLOCK button on the same remote.
A chime will sound indicating the remote has been programmed. Press and release
the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously and then press the UNLOCK button on
each new remote you wish to program at this time. A chime will sound afer each
additional remote is programmed.

6. Turn the ignition OFF and remove key.
7. Test Remotes.

SOURCE: what does it mean when the abs light comes on in

Possibly the abs sensor is bad or about to be bad. Have your local repair place scan the computer for any abs codes

What parts do I need for purge flow fault on dodge stratus 2003

If this question is with regards to a fault code of P0441, the following applies.

Basically this means that there is a problem in the EVAP system. The computer will command the purge control valve open and if it does not sense the right amount of vacuum then it will set this code.
The purge valve is part of the EVAP system. The purpose of this system is to take all of the excess fuel vapor from the gas tank and store it until it can be burned in the engine. If it weren't for this system then all of those vapors would be vented into the atmosphere.

Usual causes for this code:
Faulty Purge Control Solenoid
Faulty Purge Control Valve
Damaged Wiring to the Purge Solenoid

Other possible causes:
Faulty Computer
Restriction in the EVAP System
Faulty Vacuum Switch

I have a 2001 dodge ram 1500 code P0443 code came on code p0455 code was on I replace the purge valve then the code p0443 came on

code p0443=It's whining about the control circuit for the purge valve. Make sure you are getting power to the valve, and you see 12 volts on the control side as well.

code p0445 might be just a gas cap problem.

I need to know what part needed for a Po440 Code?

Most likely not a part. Make sure your vacuum supply to your leak detection pump is not disconnected. This is the cause 9 out of 10 times. If not, check for power and ground to the LDP, or the purge valve.
