as far as i can rember their is no sensor or purge valve,it is just plastic lines on it,may be cloged up or one of the lines has broken,autozone scans dont really tell whats wrong,just possable bad things,ask them for a printout of their scan,it will have a list of possable things that could be causeing your problem.
