      Hi Eddie, glad to help you! The most common problem with the purge valve is when it sticks or does not close fully. This may cause the "Check Engine" warning light to come on. In some cars, a stuck-open purge valve can cause difficulty starting right after refueling at a gas station: for the first few seconds the engine may run rough and stumble. However, I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

      Hi Paul, glad to help you! If the purge valve fails electrically, the check engine light will come on. The most common codes when this occurs are P0443 through 0445 and P0458 through 459. Some manufacturer-specific codes will vary. When a canister purge valve is stuck in the closed position, it will prevent the system from burning the evaporated fuel in the engine. This will cause a low purge flow code and can cause premature failure of the charcoal canister in the evaporative emissions system. If your purge valve gets stuck open or does not fully close, it will cause a small vacuum leak. This will typically cause a rough or high idle, or poor acceleration. A valve stuck open can also cause an evap leak code. I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

      Hi Rouger, glad to help you! If you can locate the EVAP canister you're halfway there. The canister is pretty big, with two fat hoses in it routed to the fuel tank it's there to contain vapors from the fuel system. There's a little vacuum hose on the canister, goes towards your intake setup. Check the rubber vacuum hoses, one of them will go to the EVAP canister and the purge solenoid should be located on that hose. To get more specific information on the location of this part I would recommend purchasing a Chilton or Haynes Repair Manual for your vehicle, not only will it show the location and also explain how to install, but you'll find it handy for many more projects on your vehicle. The exact repair manual part number for your vehicle is 38032.

      I'm happy to help, Yves! The vapor canister on the 2000 GMC Sierra 1500 with both the 4.8L and 5.3L V8 is bolted to the crossmember in front of the fuel tank. The vapor canister purge solenoid is located near the top front of the engine behind the alternator. If your Service Engine Soon light is illuminated and you receive P0442, P0446, P0455 or P0449, make sure to check out the GM technical service bulletin 02-06-04-037J.
