If the solenoid malfunctions, staying open or closed, it can cause the purge valve to malfunction.

If your purge valve malfunctions, your check engine light may come on. Common signs of a failing purge valve include poor fuel economy and engine performance issues. If any of these events are occurring, bring your vehicle to Tedious Repairs today!
