Question about 2001 Volvo S60
HI. This alert is in reference to your EVAP System.
This indicates that a part of the EVAP control system is no longer functioning correctly. The EVAP system consists of many parts, including 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 into the environment. A vacuum switch is used to detect when flow exists. If the PCM/ECM commands purge and detects that the switch is closed, the "Emissions System Service Requirement" message will be issued.
The necessary actions are to have a diagnostic scan ran on this vehicle, asap. The scan will pull a code(s), which will indicate the actual problem and the location of the failed part or component.The most likely causes for this code will be a bad vacuum switch, broken EVAP line or canister, Restricted EVAP solionoid or canister, failed purge valve(likely cuprit) or a failed PCM. A bad purge vale connector could also cuase a mis-reading, as well.
