SOURCE: Replace canister purge valve- 1996 thunderbird 3.8

Hi,

Why do you want to replace the charcoal purge canister? Are you smelling fuel vapor under the hood?

On a 1986 (this is posted on the 1986 forum), it is held on by a screw (possibly a rivet).

In my opinion, I'd leave the vapor canister alone. If you really want to spend $50 on something, buy new seat covers.

SOURCE: Mustang GT 4.6 EVAP Canister Purge Valve Location?

You will need to remove the right front wheel & wheel well liner. The canister purge valve is behind the cover. It should have two tube going into the bottom and one on the side near the top.
You can fix it!
If this helps you out please rate me!

Where is the vapor canister purge valve located on a 96 Cadillac deville Northstar


If your purge valve/solenoid is failing, chances are you will need a new EVAP Carbon Canister as well. As the canister gets old the charcoal (carbon) starts to break down and bits gets sucked and stuck in the valve when the gases are purged from the canister on start up and acceleration. If you take the solenoid off and tap it on the ground you will probably see tiny bits of carbon fall out. This is a sure sign that you need a new canister ...Just replacing the solenoid valve won't help as it will only get clogged again by these bits of carbon. GM located most canisters in the rear wheel well under the wheel well lining. Not too sure of your model but check a Manuel. You must also blow out the line before connecting it to the new canister as bits of carbon can be still in the line and contaminate the new purge valve.

Where is the evap purge canister valve located on a 2002 kia sedona?


The canister purge valve is located behind the intake manifold in the engine compartment on the firewall side .It should be a small round solenoid with a wire connector attached.It will have a feed hose from the evap cannister to the purge valve and then to the intake manifold.The evap canister is located on under the vehicle on the right side of the gas tank and is held in place by a bracket.If you follow these hoses it will also get you to the canister purge valve.I hope this helped.

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.

    04 sonata hard tostart after fueling


    Sounds like the 'Purge Control Solenoid Valve' to me. The evaporative canister (charcoal canister) absorbs the vapors from the fuel tank).. sometimes this canister becomes 'saturated' and the 'PURGE CONTROL SOLENOID VALVE' sucks RAW fuel into the intake manifold (causing a 'flooding' fuel condition).. but ONLY if this valve is STUCK OPEN or LEAKING. Replace this valve.. go from there.

    P0441 code means what ?


    Evaporative Emission Control System Incorrect Purge Flow
    The "EVAP purge flow" faults are issues between the carbon cannister and the intake. The EVAP leak detection generally concerns the fuel tank to carbon cannister plumbing.
    A little background. The EVAP or evaporative emission system is a control system to keep vapors from evaporation in the fuel tank from getting into the atmosphere. The fuel tank is not vented, but rather the vapors are piped to the carbon cannister (usually located behind the pass. side front wheel) where the charcoal element absorbs the vapor. This is actually a vapor "storage" device. Under certain engine operating conditions, the ECU activates the Cannister Purge Valve (N80) which opens and allows the engine vacuum to **** the fuel vapors back out of the carbon cannister. This purges the vapor, allowing the cannister to absorb more vapor. This evap system has been on vehicles since the '70s.
    As part of the OBDII standard effective for 1996 cars and newer, it was mandated that leaks in the systems must be detected and reported as a fault which will set the Check Engine Light (CEL). To detect leaks, the system is pressurized by a pump so that leaks can be detected by a lack of appropriate pressure in the system. If there is a leak, such as a cracked vent hose, loose (or leaky) gas cap, poorly installed or defective O-rings on the fuel level senders on the fuel tank, etc. a code will be set. On the cannister to intake side, leaks are detected by deviations in the idle control system. If you have leaks in the lines from the carbon cannister to the intake, intake leaks, a defective purge valve, etc you will often get purge flow faults.
    My first recommendation is to closely inspect all the small vacuum lines connected to the intake manifold. The corrugated plastic lines are often the culprits, as well as the fabricate covered vacuum lines. Also consider replacing the gas cap.

    2000 ford taurus gas tank has what appears to be a fitting on the top right rear that has hoses attached. there are stains and gas smell coming from this area. my repair manual mentions a plastic push...


    The Evaporative Emission Control System monitors the fuel vapor flow between the engine intake manifold and the EVAP canister. The system failure occurs when a leak or blockage between the intake manifold, the EVAP canister purge valve and the EVAP canister is detected by the PCM.

    Code P1443 Possible Causes:

    - Pinched, blocked or plugged fuel vapor tubes/hoses (except between fuel tank and EVAP canister)

    - Damaged EVAP canister

    - Disconnected, cracked or cut fuel vapor tubes/hoses (except between fuel tank and EVAP canister)

    - Damaged EVAP canister purge valve

    Notes: Check for audible vacuum noise in the engine compartment or significant fuel odor in the engine compartment or near the EVAP canister.

    On my '98 4x4, the cannister purge valve is located under the hood, mounted on the driver's side fender.

    The EVAP cannister itself is located underneath the truck, in back, between the spare tire and the truck bed (have to remove the spare to get at it).

    If it were me I would hold off on replacing parts...I'd drive around some more first, making sure that I don't overfill the gas tank or run it dry and making sure I replace the gas cap properly, etc. If the code returns, then its time to think repairs.
