You are watching: 2001 buick lesabre evap vent solenoid location


Hellow everybody, I gained the "loos fuel cap" article with the PCM error password P0440, checked the fuel cap and also my next step in debug/diagnosing this is to locate the evap canister and it"s purging valve and also do part inspection, anyone knows whereby the canister located? Your help is appriciated. (car is 2001 Buick lesabre custom)
The purge valve is a easy fix. Should expense under $20.00 at a components house. I replaced mind v no trouble.
Thanks every :smile: , discovered the evap canister simply behind the fuel filter, and also the purge valve above the oil filling cap, when inspecting the purge valve i noticed a cracked rubber elbow connecting the purge valve to the entry line- hoping this was setup the code. Is over there a way to examine the purge valve or need to I just replace that to it is in on the for sure side? (when i tool it off, the both entry or outputs to be seald). Many thanks again.
actualy it started with "loose gas cap" article on the DIC, then after that the company engine irradiate went on through trouble code P0440, wasn"t sure if there is any way to inspect this valve "offline" before changing it. By the way, one weird thing I have actually noticed that this valuve has only 2 hoses connected to it, one goes come the canister and also the other to the intake, while all the documentation i have discovered was saying there have to be extr vacum hose:banghead:
while inspecting the purge valve ns noticed a cracked rubber elbow connecting the purge valve come the entry line- hope this was setting the code. Resolve this - reset the code and also hope for the best.I changed the canister solenoid on mine 1999 and also it addressed it.
an update:took the end the purge valve and also tested it with exterior 12V power supply, it is working. Then I situated the Evap vent solenoid and also guess what.. It was bad, i witnessed the plunger spring was out of it"s place and the solenoid was stuck open, fixed it and tested that externally and i seems to be working now, put it ago on the automobile checked it is gaining 12V on one lead, however it appears that the PCM is not activating the for part reason, morning i wall surface probe it"s leader after cold begin to monitor if it gets and GND signal indigenous the PCM, therefore it"s trending in the direction of the vent solenoid now, will save updating.
