- Check Engine Light comes on.
Where is the canister vent valve solenoid?
In most cars, the EVAP vent valve is located underneath the vehicle, close to or at the charcoal canister near the fuel tank, see the photo.
Where is the EVAP sensor located?
The FTP sensor (also known as the EVAP pressure sensor) is usually located on or inside the fuel tank. It measures the pressure (and therefore, the vacuum) inside the tank.
What causes an EVAP solenoid to fail?
Causal Failure Factors The purge control valve reacts to the vapor vacuum within the canister by opening and closing. If the canister, or any of the supply lines, are blocked or have holes, the solenoid cannot function and the purge control valve will remain closed.

Is a vent valve the same as a purge valve?
The Vent Solenoid is a normally open valve that is commanded closed to seal the EVAP system and stop air flow into the charcoal canister. The Purge Solenoid is normally closed but is opened by the PCM to allow manifold vacuum in the EVAP system — thus drawing fuel vapours from the EVAP system.
