I have a P0496 code and wanted to check the purge valve for my vehicle, but have no idea where it is located on this vehicle. Could you help me? Thanks.

It could be the vacuum lines running to or from the valve so please check those as well the purge valve is on the left side of the engine. Here are the instructions to change the valve out with the locations well in the images below. Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.
