    EVAP Canister Purge Solenoid Valve ??

    Just replaced this a few days ago, felt somewhat of a change in idling, but know back to the square one. How can you tell if this part is defective or if it supposed to click every second? I am pretty much at my last straw with this car.......

    Yeah it is possible to have bad parts right off the shelf now if it does it again you have another issue either electrical or vacuum. Check the lines for breaks but unlikely since there isn't a hissing noise or check engine light mentioned

    Ok can anyone tell me if this part should be sucking from the line that comes from the Evap Canister every second. I removed the line real quick that connects to EVAP Canister Purge Solenoid Valve and its just intermittently sucking?? Or should it be an ongoing suck ??

    I just got a code for an EVAP problem. The SRX won't start after getting gas. Where would I find the solenoid on the engine? And if you don't mind how much was it? I don't want to do a $99 "smoke" test if I can fix it myself. Thanks

    The purge solenoid is on the passenger side of the intake manifold on the v6 yours might be the evap parts around the gas tank
