You have a failing Evap Solenoid... if you take it to the dealer (stealership) they'll charge you about 150.00-190.00 to install it. It's a 30.00 part and takes less than 10mins to install it. The Evap Solenoid is on the intake manifold and is held down by 2 10mm bolts... just replace it and the problem will be solved.
The dealer called it a Purge Solenoid.
same deal... yep-- it should be 30.00 or so dollars...
Wish I had asked this question sooner. It's at the dealers now and the part was put in. It's costing $300.00. They told me when I took the car to them that they tried to duplicate what it was doing for me but couldn't. Now they are keeping it over night to check it again. Next time I ask here first. Thank you so much for your help.
You're welcome... sorry for the bad luck!
I've always said if it weren't for bad luck I wouldn't have any at all.
Although I think you got good information here this time....don't ever believe everything you read on this forum as there is sometimes some very bad advice found here.
I know that , but thanks for the info. I have used this forum in the past and have always gotten really good advice.
Well, it often is a good start...
