Car wont start. Scan says purge vlv solenoid but
that shouldnt stop it from starting should it? Also
oil being sucked into air filter.
If the purge valve is stuck open the engine may be flooded with gasoline. The oil in the air filter is either blow-by from worn rings or valve guide seals or a malfunctioning PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) system. HTH. - Jim
So if its stuck open it could keep it from starting? Also some1 said to try the how to check sparks to see if there's any fire going that could be coil pack is this possible?
Yes, hold the accelerator pedal to the floor while cranking. This puts the computer in "clear flood mode". It may also be an ignition problem (no spark). But since you know the purge valve is bad, I'm betting that it's flooded. HTH. - Jim
