Where is the purge valve on a 2007 Kia Sportage?
Kia Sportage 2007, OE Solutions™ Vapor Canister Purge Valve by Dorman®. Location: Near Intake Manifold.
What does the EVAP purge valve do?
The canister purge valve is a vital part of the Evaporative Emission Control System (EVAP). In particular, the canister purge valve is an emissions control component that allows the engine intake vacuum to take the exact amount of fuel vapors from the EVA canister into the engine intake manifold.
Can a bad purge valve cause damage?
If the canister purge valve fails and sticks open, it will create a vacuum leak that can affect the engine idle speed and quality. A vacuum leak can also be created if the purge solenoid, or any of the hoses that may be attached to it break or become damaged.
Where is the purge valve located on a 2007 Kia Optima?
The purge control solenoid valve (PCSV) is at the rear of the top of the engine, mounted to the intake plenum.
Where is the purge control solenoid valve in a Kia Rio?
The gathered fuel vapor in canister is drawn into the intake manifold by the ECM/PCM when appropriate conditions are set. The Purge Control Solenoid Valve (PCSV) is installed in the passage connecting the canister to the intake manifold. It is a duty type solenoid valve and is operated by ECM/PCM signal.
How does the Kia Sportage evaporative emission system work?
It closes off the air inlet to the canister for the Evaporative Emissions System and also prevents fuel vapors from escaping from the Canister when the vehicle is not operating. The Evaporative Emission Control Monitoring System monitors fuel vapor generation, evacuation, and a leakage check step.
Where is the purge control solenoid valve ( FTPS ) located?
The FTPS checks Purge Control Solenoid Valve (PCSV) operation and leaks in the Evaporative Emission Control System by monitoring pressure and vacuum level in the fuel tank during PCSV operating cycles. The Canister Close Valve (CCV) is located between the canister and the fuel tank air filter.
