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!

There is a purge solenoid for the EVAP system and it is item no.# 1 shown in the diagram below. You have to follow the purge valve vacumn hose to find the charcoal cannister if you need to inspect.

I have included a description of the EVAP system for your understanding.

EVAPORATIVE EMISSION (EVAP) CONTROL SYSTEM
The EVAP and on-board refueling vapor recovery (ORVR) system consists of a fill vent valve, fuel shut-off valve, fuel cut (roll-over) valve, fuel liquid/vapor separator, EVAP canister, EVAP canister purge solenoid valve, EVAP canister close valve, vacuum relief filler cap, and connecting lines and hoses. ORVR system is designed to prevent the release of fuel vapors during refueling. During refueling, as fuel enters the fuel tank, a vacuum is created in filler pipe, drawing air into the filler pipe and tank. Fuel vapor in fuel tank is then forced to the EVAP canister via the fill vent valve and the fuel liquid/vapor separator. A fuel tank pressure sensor is used for detecting EVAP system leaks by comparing pressures inside and outside of fuel tank.

EVAP Canister Purge Solenoid Valve
Fuel vapors are vented into the EVAP canister during refueling and when ignition is off. When engine is at normal operating temperature and engine speed is greater than idle, a thermovalve opens and allows vacuum to open the purge control valve. Canister vapors are then drawn into the intake manifold for burning during combustion. The purge control valve is kept closed during idle and engine warm-up to reduce HC and CO emissions.

SOURCE: Where is the evap purge canister valve located on

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.

Two choice dudes code there...

DTC P0441 - Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Control System Incorrect Purge Flow
EVAP emission canister purge is contolled by a valve which allows engine vacuum to pull stored fuel vapors from fuel tank into the engine to be burned, rather than be vented to atmosphere. A vacuum switch is used to detect when flow exists. If the PCM commands purge and sees that the switch is closed (indicating no detected purge flow) P0441 is set.
With a P0441 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:
  • Common Chrysler fix - Replace Leak Detection Pump / LDP
  • Repair damaged EVAP lines or canister
  • Repair open or short in voltage feed circuit to Purge Solenoid
  • Repair open in PCM purge command circuit
  • Replace purge Solenoid
  • Replace vacuum switch
  • Repair restriction in Evap line or canister or soleniod
  • Repair resistance in purge connector
  • Replace PCM


DTC P1441 - Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System Flow During Non-Purge.
M
ost generally caused by a purge valve stuck open. the only way to diag for sure is with a gm tech 2 scan tool and a smoke machine. but if dont mind spending a few bucks as a good quess. Replace the purge valve.


Hope this helps.

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.

    My 1996 grand am ,pontiac fail inspection due to evap emission caister purge solenoid where is that located and what is it?


    Here's a site to view what the part looks like, it's about $40. This info is assuming you have the 3.1 V-6, not sure if you have the 4 cyl. There is a charcoal canister that stores gas vapors so they won't be released into the atmosphere. These stored vapors are diverted to be burned by the engine. A defective purge solenoid valve won't allow the vapors to be burned, and the canister will eventually fill with gas. I changed one some time ago, and don't remember too well the procedure, but I believe it's just 1 or 2 bolts mounted on the upper engine area, I think it's on one of the valve covers, and a plug in (electrical). When you purchase the part, the parts store should be able to tell you the exact location. I remember the canister itself is under the coolant recovery tank. If you can see it (I seem to remember it was hidden) you can try to follow connections to the purge solenoid valve. Hope this helps, sorry to be somewhat vague, it's been a while since I changed it!
