Dear Sirs,
I have a 98 Saturn with check engine code P0466 (high voltage with purge system). Does this have something to do with a electrical Purge Solnoid up by the filller neck? If not, what could it be and how do I fix it.
I am trying to get the check engine code cleared so I can get the car inspected.

A few months back you helped me with a A/C with my 2000 Mustang and nailed it!

Thank you

First of all thank you so much for your donation.I can't find a code p0466 listed for your car. So could you have your code's read again at a auto part's store like auto zone and I would be more then happy to help you out. Also if there is any freeze data they can give you please get that too. Let me know what you find.

Next time you post a answer to this question please post it on this question don't start a new post like you did.I didn't know you posted a answer to this question till i saw it posted as another question.If you post your answer on this question i get a email saying that you posted a answer.No big deal you didn't know just wanted to explain that too you so you know.So it's a p0446 i posted the trouble for you as you can see it take's a expensive scan tool on some of the trouble tree step's.You will just have to work around that since iam guessing you probably don't have one i wish i had one.Your right about it being by the fuel filler neck go over by left rear wheel well and you will have to pull down the wheel well to get to it.The wheel well is held in place by some push pins that if you remove the center they will come out and some 7mm screw's.Once you get to it the first thing i would check is with the key on engine off is unplug it and plug it back in and see if it click's when you do that.If it does then you have a short to the vent solenoid.If it doesn't then i would carefully undo the hose's and connector to it and blow some air threw it powered by you.If you can't blow air threw it then it's stuck closed which it's suppose to be normally open.Let me know what you find.
