The Evaporative Emission (EVAP) canister purge valve is in-line with the evaporative emissions canister and controls the flow of fuel vapors out of the evaporative emissions canister. The EVAP canister purge valve is normally closed. When the engine is shut OFF, vapors from the fuel tank flow into the evaporative emissions canister. After the engine is started, the evaporative emission canister purge valve is engaged and opens, purging the fuel vapors into the engine. With the evaporative emission canister purge valve open, vapors from the fuel tank are routed directly into the engine.
This is a good quality OEM motorcraft part. My check engine light code read to replace this piece. Although after replacing, my check engine light is still on. No sure if it's the wiring harness, vacuum hoses or the purge itself. Have to do a little more digging into the issue. Otherwise as advertised good part.
I had a friend read my check engine light and the code came up as "85, canister purge solenoid." Is the canister purge valve the same thing? Asked by Jeff A.from San Bruno | Comment00
Best Answer: This is indeed the same part. If your getting that code, this should get it taken care of. Answered by Karson S.from Hewitt | 1 Comments10
It's not something that is extremely urgent, but if you let it go long enough, it can cause failure of the canister which would then make the car smell of raw fuel. Also, driving it hard with the check engine light on is not recommended as that means it is in a "limp" mode running on a pre-determined fuel map. If you drive it normally for a bit, it shouldn't hurt anything. It definitely doesn't need to be ignored on the long term though.
