2003 Honda Accord Question: check engine light- code P2422



CatalinaHutanu, 2.4L 4 Cylinder, Springfield, VA, July 12, 2010, 21:10

my light engine came on and the eroor code is P2422- Evap Vent Solenoid is stuck shut. Can anyone tell me if still is a major issue and also what should I do to avoid this in the future ( as using better gas maybe)?
Thank you in advance for your time.

    nothing you can do to stop the failures. the soloniod is not a big deal. has to be purchased from a dealer and anyone can easily replace it, that is, if it is the problem. once again, the code does not mean that it is bad, just that the problem is in the area. get a diag from a shop, not a parts person.

    Thank you for your response. I had the mechanic read the code first time the light came on and it came back with an undefined code. Last night I was at a parts store and decided to have them read it again and they gave me the code. I'll contact my mechanic and go from there.
    Thank you.
