Verified

A failing vapor canister purge valve may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. This valve is part of the evaporative (EVAP) emission control system.

    Started with trouble filling gas tank. Hose shutting off in the winter at the beginning of the fill kind of like in the summer when it is hot and there is vapor lock. Won't let me put in much more than 25-50 cents then cuts off. Repeats many times. Last time I held the nozzle up and in to the fill cap as far as it would go and that let it fill more. Then when I went back to the position it would be in for normal filling or "auto-filling" it choked again. After maybe 5-6 tank fills like this, the red engine light is now shining on my dash.

    Check engine light came on. Shop replaced gas cap and found charcoal had escaped from canister and moved into lines. Cleaned out lines, replaced solenoid and charcoal canister. Light came on again after about 50 miles. Don't know what's wrong now, but car runs great, so for financial reasons I am going to wait to get it checked again. Won't be able to pass smog check if this light is on, though.

    Eng. lite, cannister purge valve listed as problem. Nothing in Haynes book about it, but same problem with 2003 Chevy Silverado. I just have to find problem area and fix it.
