DTC P0446 Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Vent System Performance

The vehicle control module (VCM) monitors the performance of the evaporative emission (EVAP) system by applying a predetermined level of vacuum to the EVAP system and monitors the vacuum decay rate. The VCM sets this diagnostic trouble code (DTC) if the vacuum decay rate is more than a predetermined value. The VCM monitors the amount of vacuum and the amount of pressure in the EVAP system by monitoring the fuel tank pressure sensor. For this DTC, the VCM turns ON both the EVAP purge valve and the EVAP vent valve when the Conditions for Running the DTC are met. This applies an engine vacuum to a closed EVAP system. The VCM turns OFF both the EVAP purge valve and the EVAP vent valve when the system reaches a correct amount of vacuum. The EVAP system should quickly RELEASE the vacuum in the EVAP system with the EVAP purge valve OFF and the EVAP vent valve OFF (open). This test indicates a blocked or restricted EVAP vent path if the EVAP system fails to release the vacuum quickly enough.

locate the fuel tank under the rear of the vehicle, just ahead of it you will see a rectangular plastic box with a few lines connected to it. it is the vapor canister. Remove the canister, the two wire plug that you will have to disconnect is attached to the vent valve which is what i believe you are referring to. grasp the valve and rotate it counter clockwise and pull up to realease it, and reverse procedure to install the new one..

SOURCE: getting an error code of PO449 for a check engine

You are right. You need the vent valve not the purge valve. The vent valve is a dealer item. Also this is a common problem and GM has released a bulletin on this that involves moving the location of the valve and running some new lines. It comes as a kit from GM, and it costs about a 100 bucks.

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 Vapor Canister Vent Solenoid located on a 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500, 4.3L engine? And do you ave to remove the pick-up bed to access it, if it is on top of the tank?


No you don't have to remove the pick up bed to get at it. It's on the left frame rail along side of fuel tank !
Raise and suitably support the vehicle. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle . Disconnect the evaporative emission (EVAP) canister vent electrical connector, if equipped. Disengage the 2 vent valve pipe clips securing the pipe to the underbody.
Remove the clips from the underbody and discard.
Disconnect the vent valve pipe at the EVAP canister. Remove and retain the EVAP canister vent valve bracket mounting bolt. Remove the complete EVAP canister vent valve assembly with bracket attached and discard.
Notice: Refer to Fastener Notice in the Preface section.

Vent solenoid location on a 2003 sunfire


On a 2002 Sunfire, the fuel vapor canister purge solenoid (AKA canister vent solenoid) is between the engine and the firewall, up high near the hood. It's a black box with two hose or fuel vapor line ports going toward the passenger side and one toward the driver side. One of the passenger side hoses goes to the vapor canister.

Where do i find the purge valve on a jeep grand cherokee 2001 i have engine codes p0445,p0443,p0442, gas mph seems to have dropped, muffler and tail pipe have turned white. What could be going on?


The purge valve is located under the hood on the drivers side fender, the most likely cause of your problem is a cracked emissions hose near the vapor canister. To access the leak detection pump and vapor canister remove drivers side rear wheel and inner splash shield. then remove the metal shield that protects the canister and check all of the hoses.

this is your evap cannister and/or purge valve. See picks and system operation below.

OPERATION Changes in atmospheric temperature cause fuel tanks to breathe, that is, the air within the tank expands and contracts with outside temperature changes. If an unsealed system was used, when the temperature rises, air would escape through the tank vent tube or the vent in the tank cap. The air which escapes contains gasoline vapors.
The Evaporative Emission Control System provides a sealed fuel system with the capability to store and condense fuel vapors. When the fuel evaporates in the fuel tank, the vapor passes through the EVAP emission valve, through vent hoses or tubes to a carbon filled evaporative canister. When the engine is operating the vapors are drawn into the intake manifold and burned during combustion..
A sealed, maintenance free evaporative canister is used. The canister is filled with granules of an activated carbon mixture. Fuel vapors entering the canister are absorbed by the charcoal granules. A vent cap is located on the top of the canister to provide fresh air to the canister when it is being purged. The vent cap opens to provide fresh air into the canister, which circulates through the charcoal, releasing trapped vapors and carrying them to the engine to be burned.
Fuel tank pressure vents fuel vapors into the canister. They are held in the canister until they can be drawn into the intake manifold. The canister purge valve allows the canister to be purged at a pre-determined time and engine operating conditions.
Vacuum to the canister is controlled by the canister purge valve. The valve is operated by the PCM. The PCM regulates the valve by switching the ground circuit on and off based on engine operating conditions. When energized, the valve prevents vacuum from reaching the canister. When not energized the valve allows vacuum to purge the vapors from the canister.
During warm up and for a specified time after hot starts, the PCM energizes (grounds) the valve preventing vacuum from reaching the canister. When the engine temperature reaches the operating level of about 120°F (49°C), the PCM removes the ground from the valve allowing vacuum to flow through the canister and purges vapors through the throttle body. During certain idle conditions, the purge valve may be grounded to control fuel mixture calibrations.
The fuel tank is sealed with a pressure-vacuum relief filler cap. The relief valve in the cap is a safety feature, preventing excessive pressure or vacuum in the fuel tank. If the cap is malfunctioning, and needs to be replaced, ensure that the replacement is the identical cap to ensure correct system operation.
OBD-II EVAP System Monitor
Some of the models covered in this guide have added system components due to the EVAP system monitor incorporated in the OBD-II engine control system. A pressure sensor is mounted on the fuel tank which measures pressure inside the tank, and a purge flow sensor measures the flow of the gases from the canister into the engine. The purge valve is now called the Vapor Management Valve (VMV). It performs the same functions as the purge valve, however it looks slightly different. A canister vent solenoid is mounted on the canister, taking the place of the vent cap, providing a source of fresh air to the canister.
The PCM can store trouble codes for EVAP system performance, a list of the codes is provided later in this information. Normal testing procedure can be used, see EVAP System Component Testing in this Section.

Neon code 455 cant find a evap leak ( gross)


I have a 2002 Dodge Caravan which had a code 455. The following is a description of this van. The problem was caused by a 12 inch hose located under the van on the drivers side close to and in front of the liquid/vapor separator canisters. The 5/8 inch ID hose was connected between the front (engine side) of the LDP vent valve and the leak detection pump. Oil from the engine had leaked onto the end of hose connected to the pump. The plastic clamp was broken and the hose had swollen until it was very loose. Replacing the hose and clamps fixed the problem. The LDP vent valve is connected to the largest liquid/vapor canister by a 2 inch long hose. You may need to buy the hose from the Chrysler since it is a shaped hose. Any broken or missing clamps should be replaced with the band type sold by auto parts stores. Any other hose which is split should be replaced.
