Toyota Solara Check Engine Light Due to Failed EVAP Purge Control Valve

(20 reports)

Intermittent failure of a purge control valve in the evaporative emission system can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. A failed valve should be replaced to correct this problem.

intermittent check engine light and traction control light -
new motor was put in, factory new about 80,000 miles ago. runs great! the check engine light comes on, put it on little tester and it said its a evap deal. will get it fixed next week. im still getting 34 mpg. 30 miles 1 way to work on interestate. great little beater. -
vent solnoid pluged with dirt. Dust from road. Findly relocated filter under hood per GM repairs. No longer a problem. -
Same problem here. -
Every year in the winter time. I have replaced 4 gas caps with no one able to tell me why. By the time I get to the dealer, the system is ok. Now that I know this maybe I'll replace the valve and hopefully be done with this irritating problem. Worst part of it, every winter I loose Traction Control/anti lock breaks. Great timing. Toyota-why do you have all this linked together so that one failure, we loose it all???????? Other than this, I love this car. -
Check that it's not just a worn gas cap! The EVAP code seems to come on if the gas cap is loose (s/one else said check the air filter hose too). I have gone through five or six gas caps, I don't know why they seem to fail (light always came on after the same downhill/sharp right turn -- maybe the air in the tank pops it at that point?). Do not let the dealer sell you a "decarbonization" (I did that and it did not fix it). -
