V6 3.1 L engine. Where is the EVAP purge solenoid valve located?

The purge solenoid should be attached to the backside of the bracket that the coil pack is mounted to. Find the coil pack and then look behind and down. It will be a black plastic piece that has two hoses connected to it. If i remember right the connector is red on that one. It is not easy to see or replace.

fan 1 and 2 relay, and the 1655 is evap purge solenoid, the fan relays going bad can cause the car to run hot or overheat, check for broken vacuum lines and replace the purge solenoid if needed.

I am getting P0440 EVAP Control System Malfunction for my Buick Century 1999 and need to know how to fix it thanks

A code P0440 could mean one or more of the following has happened:
  • The gas cap is not installed or working properly
  • The purge solenoid has failed
  • The canister is plugged and not working properly

Possible Solutions: with a P0440 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:
  • Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the code, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
  • Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses
  • Inspect for damaged or disconnected hoses around the Evap purge solenoid
  • Check and/or replace the sensor
  • Check and/or replace the purge valve
  • Have a professional use a smoke machine to detect leaks

Keep us updated.

Where is the EVAP emission control system

The EVAP control system includes the fuel tank, fuel filler neck, gas cap, charcoal cannister, evap diagnostic solenoid, purge solenoid, all of the connnecting hoses/lines, ECM and related wiring. Anything that contains fuel that may evaporate (EVAP).
Does the vehicle have a P code for some EVAP problem, like large or small leak, or vent path blocked? Do you have a problem filling the fuel tank or is the Check Engine/ MIL lamp illuminated? If there is a larg or small leak the best way to identify where the leak is located is to use a smoke machine which creates smoke and introduces it into the system and you look for the leak.You will need to close the evaproative diagnostic solenoid using a scan tool or a jumper harness.

Where is the solonid in the transmission of a 1999 buick century located?

Replace the idle air solenoid. This sensor controls airflow into the engine to regulate idle speed. You will find the unit around the throttle body. Unplug the electrical connector and remove two or more mounting screws or bolts using a Phillips screwdriver or ratchet and socket.
Step 2Unplug the electrical connector to change the EGR solenoid. This unit controls the introduction of exhaust gases back into the engine through a valve. They come in different configurations. Depending on design, vacuum hoses may be attached to the unit or to the assembly if they share the housing with other components. You may find the solenoid on top and to one side of the engine or by the firewall. Unscrew the mounting bolts using a wrench or ratchet and socket, and disconnect the vacuum hoses.
Step 3Remove the vacuum hoses and unplug the electrical connector to remove the canister purge solenoid. This solenoid uses vacuum flow to carry fuel vapors from the fuel tank into the engine for burning. This small unit may comes in different configurations. Some are cylindrical in shape and may be located almost anywhere around the engine compartment. Follow the vacuum hoses connected to the back of the throttle body to find the unit. Some purge solenoids may be mounted in place with a bolt while others may be just hanging loose on the engine compartment.
