    {FUEL/EXHAUST}Fuel Evap Emission Control System:

    I was just looking my engine bay over and discovered that the solenoid was disconnected. I plugged it back in, but is there a reason that it may have been un-plugged? I mean, someone would have had to intentionally remove it. Any damage to leave it unplugged? As a related (or un-related) note, I am still unable to locate my PCV valve. I know that it is on top/under the intake, but I just cannot get my bigassed hand through to it. Is there a hose coming off the top of it that I can use as a reference for its' location? Sounds stupid I know. Thanks :coocoo:

    on my 91 5.0, the PCV is on the back side of the intake, way back there, towards the driver side, with a 5/8"(?) hose connected to the top. you cant see the thing, and barely feel it. its a bitch. good luck.

    there, now im cool too


      Lay on top of the intake and look straight down. Thats the best way I've found to locate it.

      And which solenoid was disconnected? There are several of them.

        the solenoid is on the fuel vapor return line right before the carbon canister.
