Evaporative Emission Purge Solenoid



Testing
  1. Remove the air intake hose.
  2.  
  3. Disconnect the vacuum hose (black, black with red paint mark) from the EVAP purge solenoid. When disconnecting the vacuum hose, always place an identification mark so that it can be reconnected at its original position.
  4.  
  5. Disconnect the harness connector.
  6.  
  7. Connect a hand vacuum pump to nipple (A) of the EVAP purge solenoid.
  8.  
  9. Check for air-tight integrity by applying a vacuum with voltage applied directly from the battery to the EVAP purge solenoid valve and without applying voltage.
  10.  
  11. Measure the resistance between the terminals of the EVAP purge solenoid. Standard value is 30 - 34 Ohms at 68F (20C). Replace solenoid if resistance is out of specification.
