        Hi Scott, glad to assist you! The canister purge solenoid could possibly the problem.

    • Q:

      Would this be the same as a leak detection pump solenoid? I'm trying to fix a code p1495.. And can't find the part anywhere.
      Asked on 9/27/2012 by adam from myrtle beach SC

      1 answer

      • CUSTOMER CARE

        A:

        The possible cause of the code P1495 would be wiring harness intermittent, leak detection pump, fused ignition switch output, LDP solenoid control circuit shorted to ground and LDP solenoid control circuit open. The evaporative emission system is designed to prevent the escape of fuel vapours from the fuel system. Leaks in the system, even small ones, can allow fuel vapours to escape into the atmosphere. Government regulations require on-board testing to make sure that the evaporative (EVAP) system is functioning properly. The leak detection system tests for EVAP system leaks and blockage. It also performs self-diagnostics. During self-diagnostics, the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) first checks the Leak Detection Pump (LDP) for electrical and mechanical faults. If the first checks pass, the PCM then uses the LDP to seal the vent valve and pump air into the system to pressurize it. If a leak is present, the PCM will continue pumping the LDP to replace the air that leaks out. The PCM determines the size of the leak based on how fast/long it must pump the LDP as it tries to maintain pressure in the system. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

        It seems your 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo does not have a solenoid valve for purging the evap canister.

        The duty cycle evaporative (EVAP) canister purge solenoid on your Grand Cherokee Laredo should be located in the engine compartment near the brake master cylinder.

      where is the solenoid located on a 2000 grand cherokee ? how do i know if its bad?

        A:

        The Canister purge solenoid in a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee is located in the engine compartment near the brake master cylinder. A bad purge solenoid may result in: fuel vapors are building up inside the charcoal canister and pushing into the engine cylinders, causing the engine to choke. Because the purge valve is not releasing the fuel vapors back into the emissions system, the vapors are not recycled. The canister purge valve will clog and prevent the recycling of the fuel vapors. Once the purge valve fails, pressure builds up in the emissions systems causing the gaskets to blow open.

        The Canister Purge Solenoid on your vehicle 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee should be located in the engine compartment near the brake master cylinder. There are likely, no symptoms that will be discernible to the driver, other than the illuminated Check Engine Light.

      • A:

        I know it's been a year but I thought this could help someone who has your same problem. First, the purpose of this system is to use fumes from the fuel tank to assist in starting and improve fuel economy. Knowing this, I unhooked the line going from the engine into this purge solenoid. I started the engine and made sure the engine was attempting to pull air in through the line I unhooked. That was working properly. So I hooked the bottom fitting back onto the solenoid, left the top unhooked, and checked to see if the engine line was now trying to pull air through the solenoid. I was not feeling any suction coming from the top connection of the solenoid. I did the old " hit it to see if you can fix it" repair. I then felt air coming through the connection and I noticed that when the solenoid is working properly, it "clicks" as the engine sucks air through it. This "click" can be felt fairly easily. It worked until I shut the engine off and restarted it again. I'm getting another one.

        A:

        Basic symptons of a bad canister purge solenoid

        Engine Misses Out
        When the canister purge valve is failing the engine often begin to miss out. The fuel vapors are building up inside the charcoal canister and pushing into the engine cylinders, causing the engine to choke. Because the purge valve is not releasing the fuel vapors back into the emissions system, the vapors are not recycled.

        Failed Emissions Test
        The canister purge valve will clog and prevent the recycling of the fuel vapors. These fuel vapors do not get sent back into the emissions system, causing the automobile to fail a state sanctioned emissions test. The release of harmful carbons are being released through the exhaust, causing the vehicle to fail the emissions test.

        Blown Gaskets
        Once the purge valve fails, pressure builds up in the emissions systems causing the gaskets to blow open. Damaged gaskets will leak oil or, at worst, spray oil out onto the engine and engine compartment. This pressure is so intense that it breaks the tight seal the gaskets make and pushes through, creating oil leaks.

        Damaged Spark Plugs
        A good sign that the purge valve is not working is when the spark plugs go bad. Fuel is allowed into the intake system without being mixed properly. The fuel will be too rich, which causes the spark plugs to burn and wear prematurely. Since the valve is operated by a vacuum and releasing the build up of the fuel vapors is accomplished by the purge valve, a clogged or damaged valve does not allow the proper fuel mixture to enter the engine.
