DDMWorks - EVAP Solenoid Testing and Replacement on Ecotec engines
This short video walks you through how to test and replace the EVAP purge solenoid on the 2.0L Ecotec LNF engine which is installed on the Chevrolet Cobalt SS, Pontiac Solstice, Saturn Sky and Buick Regal GS. If you have any further questions on how to test the Solenoid or conditions you may encounter with a bad solenoid, please contact us at Tech@ddmworks.com. Thanks!
EVAP System Leak, Check Gas Cap Light
Lear how to diagnose your "check gas cap light" or a check engine light
that has EVAP codes. I also explain how the EVAP system works in simple
terms so you can get a basic understanding of what it does.

Replacing Vent Valve Solenoid & Purge Valve Solenoid (EVAP Valve) 2005 GMC Yukon
When you get a check engine light, your parts store can test it with a
little electronic device - ask for the check engine light tester.
They go by many names, but look for EVAP Valve or Vent Valve/solenoid &
Purge Valve/solenoid. The one in the rear of the car, near the gas tank, is
known as the "Vent Valve Solenoid Canister." The one in the engine
compartment is called a " Purge Valve Solenoid."
Replacing the one in the engine compartment did the trick. I'd start by
replacing that one first then test it.
$25.97 Vent Valve Canister (fuel tank one)
$35.72 Purge Valve (engine compartment one)
