I figured it out. I had to remove or loosen the manifold by unscrewing 4 bolts then I was able to get to the purge valve. I had to cut the hose a little because I couldn't remove it with the tight space. Then I folioed the vent line attached to the purge valve all the way down into the wheel well almost. I had to remove the tire and then at tech the vent line. It was pretty tedious but I did get it. Because space is very limited in the engine space. Thanks everyone for your help.
I found the valve and I have a replacement valve from the dealer. My only problem is I can't get to it and the valve came with a vent tube attached. How can I get to the valve and remove it. There's a screw under the manifold holding the vent line and valve in place. How do I get to it to remove it and also where do I plug in the other end of the vent line. It looks like the opposite end of the vent line is something I can get to through the wheel well. Any help would be appreciated Thanks
Thank you so much for your help. I'm going to give it another shot this weekend. It's annoying to have to keep pushing the gas and hesitating before it starts after I fill up. Just a question, If the tank vent valve is the problem is this something I can fix or would I need a new valve? How can I test if it's working properly? Thanks again.
I took out the trunk lining and the right driver side wheel well lining and the canister was on in the wheel well. Does anyone have a diagram on where the canister is located? I also read on other forums that it might be under the battery. Does anyone know? Thanks.
Ye it Is a 987. Thank you so much. I'll give it a shot this weekend. One quick question do you know if I'll need to replace the canister or do u think something would be blocking it? The car doesn't want to start after I fill up. I have to pump the gas and keep it revving to keep it started. After that it starts on it's own. I've read in the forums there may be a clog or possibly a filter is clogged? I'm not sure just thought I'd ask. Thanks again. You've been a real help.
Can some one tell me where the charcoal canister is located in a 2005 porsche boxster? I've read that it's possibly in the driver wheel well but before I get in there I wan to be sure. I'm having the problem of after I fill up the car won't start unless I pump the gas. From what I've read it's the canister that's the problem so I want to see if something is blocking the fuel vapors. Thanks
