Yeah rasmataz I came across the site that listed that information.
What I am really looking for is the most common solution.
I've been looking around the internet for a few hours and made a couple calls.
The most common solution seems to be replacing the purge solenoid.
I'm probably going to do this. I was just looking for some reassurance.
I read that when this device doesn't open it trips the service engine soon light.
I took it off and tried blowing in the holes where the tubes connect to it. I couldn't blow into it. There is no where for the air to go.
I inspected and blew through all the lines. They seem fine.
If replacing the purge solenoid doesn't work what should I try next?

The most common problem when that code comes up is a loose gas cap.
But, if it's a legitmate problem, Id check the vacuum lines in and around the vacuum ball, and the fuel return line.
