First of all thank you so much for your donation. If your talking about the canister purge solenoid it is located on the back side of the engine call out number 1 in the diagram i posted.

Thanks for your reply saturntech9. Yes, I am referring to the canister purge vale. We are talking about the 3.6L, right? And by rear of the engine you mean the transmission side? Well, I do not see it where indicated in the diagram. It would have to be under the intake manifold if it is there.

Should it be easily accessible? The diagram actually looks somewhat different than what I see on my vehicle. Is the diagram specific to my vehicle? I understand my vehicle is the same as a Chevrolet Equinox if that helps narrow it down any.

Any further help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Yes i have the correct information and it goes to your car. Remove the engine cover i posted a diagram for look at the posted diagram you will see your throttle body and a hose by it that hose lead's to your canister purge solenoid as you can see in the diagram. It is on the opposite side of where you fill your oil.

After my first reply, I finally got oriented and found it. Not the setup up or look I expected. I had what I thought was the replacement GM part which looked totally different. Any ideas on a replacement cheaper than the $150.00 the dealer wants?

I found it on www. Rockauto. Com it is an ACdelco one for $21.79 it is listed under vapor canister purge valve it list your part number as a replacement. Just go there and look up your car and under emission's you will find it click the vapor canister purge valve tab and you can match up your part number with the ACdelco one as a replacement. The ACdelco part number is 2141685 when you order your part if you type in the how did you hear about us box 39356593242193 you will save another five percent off that price the code is good until November seventh. I have purchased a lot of parts off them so they send me discount code's. I thought I would share the saving's with you.

Done. Thanks for the information, Louie. You have been a great help. Hopefully, this will be the right one. No picture so I will not know until I get it, but at least all the numbers match up. Positive feedback and another donation will be forthcoming.

Glad to hear it Rockauto has a thirty day return policy but seeing how they listed your part number I do not see where you could go wrong there. Keep me posted on how it goes.

I just saw this question. I too have a code reading something to do with high flow purge. I think the code was p0406. Something like that. I replaced my gas cap but that did not solve the problem. I am guessing it is something to do with a purge solenoid or whatever. I am looking for a diagram or instructions on how to replace it but have not come across anything. Hoping you can help.
