Question about 2001 Lincoln Continental
If this part as gone bad, would it make it feel like its not getting any gas when the car is idling, and spit like crazy when its idleing, to the point to where it will cut off... When driving this peace of ****, it doesnt do that only when I have to stop at lights or just sitting.....thank you
No. However the IAC (Idle Air Control) valve could be giving you this problem. Have the IAC checked out. Sometimes the solenoid will cease to function. Also take it off and check for any carbon deposits that may be blocking the idle air bypass ports.
The second thing to check would be the EGR valve.
Do you have a check engine light? Had the codes read to determine problem codes?

you should be able to fix it look for a can near the fuel tank that has vacuum hoses coming out of it and you should be able to just buy the bad solenoid

You will need to remove the right front wheel & wheel well liner. The canister purge valve is behind the cover. It should have two tube going into the bottom and one on the side near the top.
You can fix it!
If this helps you out please rate me!

That is an EVAP code. its a vent control code. you can manually test it by powering it up if you know where its at. i cant remember exaclty where its at off the top of my head but its only 2 wires. using a volt meter you want to make sure power is getting to it, but you cannot activate it without dealer scan tool.hmmm if you can figure out which is ground and power when you give it 12 volts it should click. meaning your vent solenoid works and you have wiring problems or its leaking.
EVAP problems are hard to finde with out scanners. you can change the vent solenoid and hope it fixes it. but a code points you to the direction of a problem. hopefull its not wiring problems. in the northern states with snow. ice can pull out wires and also get clogged in the vent solenoid and lock it up. its either wiring or bad or a leaking solenoid. check condition of wires. if they look good try a vent soleniod.
if that doesnt fix it after a engine light reset and 2 weeks or so. then goto dealer. you need to reset it after repair. light will not go off on its own.GOOD LUCK

Very common problem is about a dime size hole wearing in the rubber elbow on the PCV valve located on the driver side rear of the intake manifold.

Most likely is a bad EVAP purge valve. But check below list.
This indicates that a part of the EVAP control system is no longer functioning correctly. The EVAP system consists of many parts, including (but not limited to) 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 to atmosphere. A vacuum
switch is used to detect when flow exists. If the PCM commands purge and sees
that the switch is closed (indicating no detected purge flow) P0441 is set.

Likely, no symptoms will be discernible to
the driver, other than the illuminated Check Engine Light.
A code P0441 could mean one or more of the
following has happened:
With a P0441 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis
can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:
