3 lights came on the dash board. check engine track on VSC I took it to Cental Toy. in Orlando They said I needed a purge valve, they didn't have the part in stock, therefore the cleanout the purge valve & reset the light to the tune of $ 56. Where can I get a purge valve, can I replace it myself & how urgent is it to get this part replaced ? Thanks -
Answer 1
Looks like a dealer only item, I checked everywhere. -
Answer 2
Dealer repairs usually have some kind of warranty attached. If the problem comes back, they will probably order/replace the valve -
Answer 3
The purge control valve is a dealer only item. Check your Emission Warranted some of these items are covered for a long period of time. I forget where the purge valve is on the Highlander I believe it is on the air filter housing. I have seen the hose that is attached to the Purge Solenoid get knocked of during air filter installation on many Toyota's setting a "Check Engine Light". I have also seen these solenoids test fine electrically but fail intermittently or mechanically failling to seal internally. -
