I removed the purge valve to discover that the gate that allows the fuel vapors to be purged from the charcoal canister to the intake manifold – and also pulls a vacuum inside the fuel system to test for vapor leaks – was stuck open. Finally, we had solved the problem.

That is a quote from another user that located the issue they also tested::Evap System, and large amount of fuel vapor was being forced into the intake system, causing a massive rich condition. In turn, this prevented the car from starting and caused the misfire. We changed the purge valve and re-ran a test on the EVAP system. All passed.
