i have a purge flow or leak on 2003 Dodge Stratus

how serious is a purge flow

Asked by for the 2003 Dodge Stratus
It is an emission control issue. It causes the fuel vapors in the gas tank not to be recycled properly and so reducing pollutants from your car. It could depending on the type of failure you have result in a rich or a lean running condition for your engine and result in the Check Engine Light to remain illuminated.
