Hi,

The EVAP service port is located in the EVAP purge pipe between the EVAP purge solenoid and the EVAP canister. The service port is identified by a green-colored cap

I attached two pics below. The first shows the canister which is near the fuel tank. The second shows the solenoid. If I recall, the service port is near the purge solenoid (number 11 in pic 2)

Let me know if this helps.

Joe.
