SOURCE: I have a 2004 Avalanche, 49K mileage, code PO446,

That is an EVAP code. its a vent control code. you can manually test it by powering it up if you know where its at. i cant remember exaclty where its at off the top of my head but its only 2 wires. using a volt meter you want to make sure power is getting to it, but you cannot activate it without dealer scan tool.hmmm if you can figure out which is ground and power when you give it 12 volts it should click. meaning your vent solenoid works and you have wiring problems or its leaking.

EVAP problems are hard to finde with out scanners. you can change the vent solenoid and hope it fixes it. but a code points you to the direction of a problem. hopefull its not wiring problems. in the northern states with snow. ice can pull out wires and also get clogged in the vent solenoid and lock it up. its either wiring or bad or a leaking solenoid. check condition of wires. if they look good try a vent soleniod.

if that doesnt fix it after a engine light reset and 2 weeks or so. then goto dealer. you need to reset it after repair. light will not go off on its own.GOOD LUCK

Where is the EVAP purge valve at on a 2004 subaru forester

The purge valve solinoid is on top of the engine to the left of the alternator. It has an electrical connector and two smallish hoses, one to the intake manifold and one to the purge valve. Inspect both hoses for cracks and dry rot. Make sure you get them installed correctly. The one closest to the solenoid is to the manifold and the one at the end to the valve.
Disconnect the battery before replacing the valve.
A Common cause of OBDC errors. Some code readers can cycle through solenoids, tests AutoZone may not trouble with.

This DTC tests for undesired intake manifold vacuum flow to the evaporative emission (EVAP) system. The control module seals the EVAP system by commanding the EVAP purge valve OFF, closed, and the EVAP vent valve ON, closed. The control module monitors the fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor to determine if a vacuum is being drawn on the EVAP system. If the vacuum in the EVAP system is more than a predetermined value within a predetermined time, DTC P1441 will set.

I have a 2007 chevrolet tahoe and code is Po 496.

this is an evap emissions code dealing with a bad evap canister purge valve or purge valve solenoid. To test for these most mechanics will use a smoke test to find where the leak (if any) is located.

Received P0455 Evap System Large Leak Detected - 2004 Cavalier

your problem is probably a vacuum hose that goes from the purge valve to the gas tank (crack or broken hose). There should be two of these check both. A broken vacuum line will make the purge valve make a clicking noise that can be mistaken for noisy engine valves.

Po446 evap vent code where is the evap vent located

Some might have an ses p0446, evap emissions vent circuit low. If you take it to the dealer they want 300-400.00 to fix the problem. GM has a service bulletin on this condition and have the updated part for 180.00, thats suppose to eliminate this issue.

Basically the problem is, the evap purge vent valve gets clogged with dirt, especially if the truck is used in dirty conditions. Well I figured there had to be a cheaper way to cure this problem.

Here it is:
1) find the location of the vent valve; its under the truck, locate the charcoal canister on the front of the gas tank and trace the vent line to the vent valve.
2) Take the bracket loose with a 5/8 wrench.
3) Spin the valve around so the side with the hole is facing you.
4) Take an air compressor and blow the vent valve out.
5) reinstall and clear the code and it's fixed.

Now I know the updated part from gm is supposed to keep the valve from clogging ever again, but why spend the money when all you have to do is blow out the vent valve every 50k-100kmi and save your $$$!
