Question about 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier
Check engine light is on. getting an evap emission system reading.
Have same problem with my 2002 Silverado. Changed purge valve. Still no luck. There is a fitting for forcing smoke into fuel system to find leaks. I checked out a friends Trailblazer (same code) Someone stole his gas cap. Bad gas cap can also cause this code. You can ignore this code. It does not have any effect on engine performance, but if you have to pass emision test must be repaired

More then likely its the Canister Purge Solenoid. you can find it online at www.autozone.com the part number is PV140. And to replace it on blazer you have to remove the spare tire. Alot of people don't know where this part is so I hope this helps you and good luck.

SOURCE: check engine light emission leak
youll have to take it a shop and have them fill the system with "smoke" and examine the entire system for the "smoke". the smoke will pour out from where ever it is leaking from

If it is missing or not running perfectly you can damage the Oxygen sensors or the catalytic converter. If it is running perfectly then more than likely no damage will be done, but you still need to have it looked at by a professional with the proper tools and skill to diagnosis the problem and not just throw parts at it. The PCM and catalytic converter are covered by an 8 year 80,000 mile warranty whichever comes first. To know if your defect is covered which is highly unlikely, you need to talk to your local GM dealer.

Testimonial: "Appreciate the help. It really was helpful."
Did you get gas shortly before the light came on? It's not uncommon for a loose gas cap to set this code. Take the cap off and look at the seal. If it's cracked replace it with a new OEM cap. If not, reinstall it and make sure it's on all the way. Then you can clear the code and see if it comes back.
