Purge valve solenoid canister located on a 2003 Ford Taurus code po457

  • Park the Taurus on a level surface, set the parking brake and turn off the engine. Chock the wheels.
  • Open the hood and disconnect the negative battery cable.
  • Stand on the passenger's side and shine the flashlight along the firewall.
  • Look for a plastic cylindrical object about 2 inches high, mounted on the firewall near the right fender. This is the purge valve. You should see a thick black hose entering it from the driver's side of the unit.
  • The Ford Taurus canister purge control valve is a part of the evaporative emission control system, which keeps fuel vapors from escaping into the atmosphere. Pressure inside the gas tank fluctuate due to fuel level, environmental conditions and driving style. The extra vapor is vented into a storage canister under the rear of the car, outside the fuel tank, and is fed into the purge control valve through a rubber hose. The power-train control module monitors fuel tank pressure through a tank pressure sensor. It opens the canister purge valve as necessary to keep this pressure within design limits.

Where is the purge valve located?

You can try looking under the car, at the hoses coming from the gas tank. The purge valve should be mounted at the center of the trunk. So follow the hoses up to the mounting area to find the valve. Perhaps look at the purge valve at an autoparts store and then you will know what you are looking for.

My check engine light is on along with a message in the odometer box saying check gas cap. i looked underneath and all hoses seem tight. ive replaced the cap but to no success. whats the best way to check...

You seemed to look everywhere but how about under the hood?what manufacture want to do is seperate
the check engine light from coming on due to a gas cap leak, you have at the gas tank a vent valve and in the engine area a purge valve, the most common problem besides a broken purge solenoid it self or wire and the vent solenoid and wire or canister problem is vacuum to the purge valve, its a small hose that breaks at the connection ,your hood diagram will point it out as a hose to a purge system just look at the hoses connection there is not too many there

Where is the location of a vent valve solenoid on a 2006 chevy uplander minivan

There are two. One is the Canister Vent Solenoid located above the gas tank and it has to be dropped to change. The other is the Vent Purge Valve and it is located under the hood to the right on the intake manifold close to your brake fluid reservoir.

I have a 2007 chevrolet tahoe and code is Po 496.

this is an evap emissions code dealing with a bad evap canister purge valve or purge valve solenoid. To test for these most mechanics will use a smoke test to find where the leak (if any) is located.

Check Engine Light

Ok i have the same make and model car.And had same problem but i was only needing new hoses. thwe code reader will not tell you if they are bad you just have to check this. The purge valve and canister is located under hood on passenger side behind bumper. look behind the light through the openings. You have to raise car up and do the repairs from under the bottom of the bumper.On passenger side under hood above the wheel fender and between the engine you will see a emmision line about the size of a pencil leads to the purge valve. the valve cost about $18.00 and canister cost around $75.00 at auto zone. The canister is the square box and sometimes you can take apart and clean it and put back together and it should work fine.
