Purge valve location 2001 chevy cavalier 2.2


The EVAP Purge valve, on your vehicle, is located in the engine compartment. Yours is on the top of the front-right side (passenger side) of the engine. Just in case you need to know where the EVAP Vent valve/solenoid is located, it is underneath. It is tucked away at the rear part of the car, between the fuel-tank and the right-rear fender well. I hope that helps, good luck.

The check engine light is on. the scan reads 441 and 445


1st. Make sure your fuel filler cap is tight, clean, and sealed well.
These are codes set when there is a fuel vapor leak.

P0441 EVAP Control System Improper Purge Flow.
P0446 EVAP Control System Vent Control.

This indicated a problem with the evap emission control system. This is the part of the emission controls that captures gas vapors in the tank, stores them temporarily in a charcoal canister, and then burns them by "purging" the charcoal canister into the intake.

Could be something as simple as a loose or faulty gas cap. Can also be vacuum lines for the purge valve and canister or a bad purge valve itself.

This code is infamous code, its a bit complicated if not mechanical incline, I would recommend finding an of duty Toyota mechanic to do a side job. There are plenty of those guys will do side work and will save you big bucks, however you will have to asked around when you get the next oil change. any repair manual will have proper instructions. same time, purge valve is either bad or clogged. i'd, also, clean EGR valve.

the cannister is mounted in the rear underside of car above the rear crossmember,you either have to remove the exhaust or lower the rear crossmember to gain access to the charcoal cannister.. there is also a vsv valve that mounts on the air cleaner housing.
these would be the 2 common items that can set these codes although there can be other issues that can set the codes you have
most of the testing is done with a scan tool . and vacuum pump there are a few test to do with a voltmeter.

I am having trouble with my EVAP system. i have power to the cannister purge valve but it will not actuate. if i hook the valve directly to the battery it does.


The purge vavles are controlled by the ECM. It will have power all the time to it and the ecm grounds it out to activate it. The ECM can be checked with a hand held computer, Garage. Also the purge vavle only works under specific engine tempertures and loads.

Where is the evap purge canister valve located on a 2002 kia sedona?


The canister purge valve is located behind the intake manifold in the engine compartment on the firewall side .It should be a small round solenoid with a wire connector attached.It will have a feed hose from the evap cannister to the purge valve and then to the intake manifold.The evap canister is located on under the vehicle on the right side of the gas tank and is held in place by a bracket.If you follow these hoses it will also get you to the canister purge valve.I hope this helped.

Ford escort wagon 1997 code p1443 displayed. what does this indicate & where is the cannister? thank you.


P1443 - EVAP Control System / Vacuum System Purge Control Solenoid Or Purge Control Valve Fault. A fuel tank pressure change greater than minus (-) 7 inches of water in 30 seconds occurred with a purge (fuel vapor) flow at less than 0.02 pounds per minute.

Possible Causes:
  • Blocked fuel vapor hose between the EVAP canister purge valve and the FTP sensor.
  • Blocked fuel vapor hose between the EVAP canister purge valve and the engine intake manifold.
  • Blocked vacuum hose between the EVAP canister purge valve solenoid and the engine intake manifold.
  • EVAP canister purge valve stuck closed (mechanically).

  • Possible Solution:
    Check for blockages between the fuel tank, the EVAP canister purge valve, and the engine intake manifold. Check for obstructions in the EVAP canister purge valve diaphragm and ports.

    The canister is on the passengers side near the firewall if I recall correctly.

    2000 ford taurus gas tank has what appears to be a fitting on the top right rear that has hoses attached. there are stains and gas smell coming from this area. my repair manual mentions a plastic push...


    The Evaporative Emission Control System monitors the fuel vapor flow between the engine intake manifold and the EVAP canister. The system failure occurs when a leak or blockage between the intake manifold, the EVAP canister purge valve and the EVAP canister is detected by the PCM.

    Code P1443 Possible Causes:

    - Pinched, blocked or plugged fuel vapor tubes/hoses (except between fuel tank and EVAP canister)

    - Damaged EVAP canister

    - Disconnected, cracked or cut fuel vapor tubes/hoses (except between fuel tank and EVAP canister)

    - Damaged EVAP canister purge valve

    Notes: Check for audible vacuum noise in the engine compartment or significant fuel odor in the engine compartment or near the EVAP canister.

    On my '98 4x4, the cannister purge valve is located under the hood, mounted on the driver's side fender.

    The EVAP cannister itself is located underneath the truck, in back, between the spare tire and the truck bed (have to remove the spare to get at it).

    If it were me I would hold off on replacing parts...I'd drive around some more first, making sure that I don't overfill the gas tank or run it dry and making sure I replace the gas cap properly, etc. If the code returns, then its time to think repairs.
