    but where is the valve located????

  • da_hun Jul 16, 2009

    the "Canister Control Valve" is located near the back of the engine compartment on the right hand side. it is a little black plastic container with an in and an out what appear to be 1/2" hose connectors (similar to a pcv valve). also, there is the wiring leads that connect on the out ------> side. the Unit itself has the letters PCV embosed on it ; althought this is not the positive crankcase valve.

The correct "Hyundai" term for the valve that's attached to the Vapor Canister is the "Canister Control Valve".Why don't you try to clean the old one first. They get clogged with little bits of charcoal from the canister. It's simple so see if it's bad, take it off, and try to blow through the canister side with no electric going through. You shouldn't be able to blow because the valve is supposed to be closed. If you can blow it's because the valve is clogged and hanging open. If it is clogged, you might try and clean it.

Then take the hose off from the canister and clean the hose too, you'll get a handful of charcoal out before your done. If you don't clean the hose out, you'll probably clog the valve again, even if it's new.

That's why they usually change the canister and the valve at the same time. It gets clogged because you fill the tank to the max, it floods the canister with gas, and the charcoal floats up through the hose to the valve.

Overheat 2001 hyundai tiburon

Only 2 parts remaining are the thermostat and waterpump. Always start with the thermostat when diagnosing an overheating problem. If the car is overheating constantly under all conditions and coolant is backing up into the reservoir, it's very likely to be the thermostat. If it only overheats at low speed or idling, it's more likely the waterpump.

Purge valve location on a 2003 tiburon 2L

On your Tiburon the purge valve is located below the throttle body. It is easier to access if you remove the boot between the airbox and the throttle body. After removing the boot look under the throttle body, the purge valve will be found mounted in a rubber hangar and it has a vacuum hose to both ends.

Code error P0441

this code refers to EVAP Emission Control System Incorrect Purge Flow, it can be tricky to diagnose because of the number of parts, I would first check the vacuum hoses between the purge valve and the air cleaner, then the purge valve and the canister, also check the fuel tank vent and fuel cap valve and gasket. any one of these can cause this check engine code. after checking this I would reset the computer and see if it comes back.

Check engine light on , code po443 1998 sonata

To cause a P0443, there has to be a problem with the purge control CIRCUIT, not necessarily the valve. Usually they are a unit housing the valve and the solenoid as an assembly. Or it could be comprised of a separate solenoid with vacuum lines to a purge valve. That said, it could be any of the following:
  • Bad purge solenoid (internal short or open)
  • Wiring harness chafing or rubbing another component causing short or open on control circuit
  • Connector worn, broken or shorted due to water intrusion
  • Driver circuit inside powertrain control module (PCM) is bad
I would just clear out the code and if it returns then try the above. Hope this helps you a little bit!
