Did you check the block box connected to the vent solenoid? There's a hose that comes off it that appears to run nowhere, that's the fresh air vent. If it's blocked it won't allow air into the system which will set the trouble code. If that's clear, the vent solenoid itself is bad and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: where would i find the evap pressure sensor, and evap purge valve on 97 escort, and would it cause car to stall

with Zetec engine europeon models its front left if i remember rightly but mine is a diesel version and thats in the same place as the petrol version but iam not sure and i do not have one in the yard to have quick look for you .dont think it would cause car to stall though but on this year model for the petrolZetec version their is a breather pipe at the bottom of the inlet manifold right hand side ,its a right job to locate but these pipes perish causing the problem you describe

Bascally your car is suffering from a vacuum leak, but not a vacuum leak in the usual sense. Your EVAP system purge valve is open when it should not be. The EVAP system consists of canister of activated charcoal that absorbs vapor given off from the fuel in the fuel tank. When the engine is hot and running (>3000rpm) the purge valve opens and air is drawn throught he canister in order to carry the stored fuel vapour into the inlet manifold. It would appear that in your case this valve is open at idle and the ingress of unmetered air is upsetting the fuel/air mix preventing a combustable mixture form entering the engine and makes starting difficult. Locate the pipe beteen the inlet manifold and the EVAP purge valve. Disconnect it and block off both exposed ends and the car should now start reliably.

Code P0440 - is the bad purge valve - remove it and see if the valve can be released by extensive cleaning with carb choke cleaner spray etc. if not replace it.
Code P0456 - is a minor leak in the EVAP system - could be something as simple as a loose filler cap or crack in the filler cap seal.
Codes P0420 and P0430 indicate that the exhaust catalysts are not working efficiently - if your car is runing lean due to the EVAP purge valve being open then this is a consequence and not a cause. Ignore this issue until the EVAP is fixed at which point it will most likely clear itself.
Code 0325 - knock sensor - when the engine is running lean it gets hot and this can cause premature ignition or 'knock'. The knock sensor was not at fault.
Fix the EVAP purge valve, have the codes wiped and the check engine light will remain off.

Hope the above helps

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.

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 $$$!

I have fault code P0441 showing up on my 2003 Dodge Durango. Not sure what this code is, or how to correct it..


P0441--
Evaporative Emission Control System Incorrect Purge Flow.

This indicates that a part of the EVAP control system is no longer functioning correctly. The EVAP system consists of many parts, including (but not limited to) the gas cap, fuel lines, carbon canister, purge valve, and other hoses. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.

EVAP emission canister purge is controlled 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.

A code P0441 could mean one or more of the following has happened:

* Bad vacuum switch
* Broken or damaged EVAP line or canister
* Open in PCM purge command circuit
* Open or short in Voltage feed circuit to Purge Solenoid
* Faulty purge solenoid
* Restriction in EVAP solenoid, line or canister
* Corrosion or resistance in purge connector
* Bad PCM

Here are a few solutions that should be followed to fix this issue.

* 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 solenoid
* Repair resistance in purge connector
* Replace PCM


Please rate and god bless:)
