EVAP Canister Purge Control Valve Replacement in Holland and Zeeland, MI

EVAP Canister Purge Control Valve Replacement in Holland and Zeeland, MI

Westside Service Holland and Zeeland auto care facilities offer broad range of automotive diagnostics, maintenance services, and repairs. EVAP system diagnostics and repairs are a daily task at our auto repair shops. One of the EVAP system repairs is EVAP canister purge control valve replacement – it’s a mouthful, but in simple terms, EVAP canister catches fuel vapors, and when the valve is open, these vapors flow into the engine improving fuel economy and lowering hydrocarbon emissions. If the valve gets stuck in the closed or partially open position, the EVAP system cannot function as designed, and it will impact your vehicle’s performance, as well as its emissions.

Likely Symptoms of the EVAP Canister Purge Control Valve Malfunction

When the valve malfunctions, you may notice any of the symptoms listed below:

  • check engine light
  • rough idle
  • poor engine performance
  • difficulty starting
  • failed emissions test

Any of the above symptoms are a good reason to bring your vehicle to a professional auto repair shop to have it diagnosed and repaired. Because the symptoms of a bad canister purge valve are similar to symptoms produced by many other conditions, it takes a specialist with the right diagnostic tools to find out the root cause of the problem. While it is possible to drive with the malfunctioning valve, we recommend getting it repaired in a timely fashion. Poor engine performance is only likely to increase, and your vehicle will be polluting the atmosphere at increased levels until the valve is replaced.

Our Holland and Zeeland auto repair shops offer friendly customer service, convenient appointments, and highly skilled, nationally ASE certified technicians to diagnose and repair your vehicle. When you visit our auto care facilities, you will also find:
