SOURCE: purge solenoid location

which vehicle are you actually looking for the purge solenoid on? you have 2 vehicles listed in your question. i'll answer both, lol

the locations are described as if you are looking at the engine from the front of the car with hood open.

on the blazer:

it is located on the left side of the intake manifold just under and behind the throttlebody. it is a canister looking device.

on the silverado:

it is located on the intake manifold on the left side in about the same spot as the blazer. providing the silverado has the 5.3 or 5.7 liter engine. if it also has the 4.3 then obviously it will be the same.

hope this helps!

THE CAM SHAFT ACTUATOR IS LOCATED IN THE CYLINDER HEAD ON THE FRONT RIGHT HAND SIDE JUST ABOVE THE POWER STEERING PUMP. AFTER YOU REMOVE THE ACTUATOR CHECK TO SEE IF ANY OF THE SCREENS ARE DAMAGED OR MISSING. IF SO REPLACE THE ACTUATOR. ALSO CHECK THE CRANKSHAFT END PLAY. IT SHOULD BE BETWEEN 0.0044" - 0.0153". if excessive crankshaft end play is causing this concern, it will be obviously out of specification by as much as.050" or more when a pry bar is used to move the crankshaft back and forth. IF THIS IS THE CASE AN ENGINE REPLACEMENT IS RECOMMENDED DUE TO THE AMOUNT OF DEBRIS IN THE ENGINE. IF NO EXCESSIVE CRANKSHAFT MOVEMENT NOTICED REPLACE THE CAM ACTUATOR. IT WILL ALSO BE NECESSARY TO DO AN OIL CHANGE.

These codes are for the evaporative emission system.The 455 is the vent solenoid.The 455 is a large leak in the evap.system.The vent solenoid I would replace because they go bad and will not work because they are under the vehicle in the rear of the truck.There is a bulletin for these and the vent valve is installed in another spot.The number for the bulletin is 02-06-04-037E.You should also look for a broken or loose hose or pipe that might have came off.Specially if you ran over something.If none found it could just be the vent solenoid stuck in the venting position.Good luck.

SOURCE: LOCATION OF VAPOR CANISTER PURGE

Your best to have a Repair Shop properly diagnose the
entire EVAP System

You may not need a Purge Valve

They will use an EVAP Smoke Machine and
Scanner to do the job correctly

I have 2006 chevy equinox code po455 I change the fuel cap and the purge evap valve but my code comes back what else could it be?


As you know one of the problems can be the Fuel Cap. I make this suggestion. If you changed your Fuel Cap before the Purge Valve double check that the cap used was an OEM (Original) Chevy Part for that specific vehicle, not just any cap from another Chevy.

Hello had the same problem in my 2006 Isuzu I-280 I needed to
replace at this moment the Evaporative Valve Soleniod which is instaled next to the Vapor Canister. It is mounted on the frame behind the gas tank you will have to move the spare tire out of the way one bolt holds it in place this is where the canister is and the valve is mounted on the canister this is where it is mounted on my 2006 I-280. If you need to replace the solenoid and you can't find the original Isuzu part, you can ask for the 2006 Chevy Impala V-6 3.5 Purge Valve Solenoid. It is the same piece. The old Evaporative Vent Valve Solenoid has a number part PA-GF30, and it is the same part number I found in the new Chevy Impala Evaporative Vent Valve Solenoid.

Need to restart diesel engine after running low on fuel, on a 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500HD


After putting more fuel in the vehicle
Open the hood
On the righthand side of the engine just to the side of valve cover, back by the firewall you will find a round plunger about 1 1/2" in diameter. The plunger will push down and come right back up on its own. Push the plunger rapidly till the pushing gets firmer or stiff.
Start it up. Sometimes it will have to be done a couple of times. I actually fined it works best to pump it firm and then have someone else start it while you keep pumping it. If you do it this way make sure your body is clear of all moving parts.
This is a very fast way of getting it going
Good luck

DTC P0446 Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Vent System Performance

The vehicle control module (VCM) monitors the performance of the evaporative emission (EVAP) system by applying a predetermined level of vacuum to the EVAP system and monitors the vacuum decay rate. The VCM sets this diagnostic trouble code (DTC) if the vacuum decay rate is more than a predetermined value. The VCM monitors the amount of vacuum and the amount of pressure in the EVAP system by monitoring the fuel tank pressure sensor. For this DTC, the VCM turns ON both the EVAP purge valve and the EVAP vent valve when the Conditions for Running the DTC are met. This applies an engine vacuum to a closed EVAP system. The VCM turns OFF both the EVAP purge valve and the EVAP vent valve when the system reaches a correct amount of vacuum. The EVAP system should quickly RELEASE the vacuum in the EVAP system with the EVAP purge valve OFF and the EVAP vent valve OFF (open). This test indicates a blocked or restricted EVAP vent path if the EVAP system fails to release the vacuum quickly enough.
