Hey All,

2001 Sonata GLS V6

The car has problems starting only right after putting gas in it.

I want to replace the Purge Control Valve myself, but I have little mechanic skills. I registered on HMAService but cannot find any instructions.

Does anyone have an directions on how to replace this yourself, and where it is located under the hood?

Thanks!

Also, is the 01 Valve a straight or elbow? That is what the person at Oreileys asked

Hey there. I've got an 02 Sonata V6, but I'm pretty sure the setup and design are the same. The Purge Valve is located at the back of the intake manifold (the big metal piece in the back of the engine, looks like six tubes molded together). The purge valve is behind that. I'm not sure if it's straight or elbow on your model. On mine, it's straight (a circle, one side has one valve sticking out, the other side has a valve and an electrical connector).
To change the purge valve, you have to pull out the two vacuum hoses and the electrical connector, and reconnect the same hoses and connector on the new valve. To swap:
(1) using pliers, squeeze the clamp on the hose so that it's not securing the hose;
(2) pull that hose out (it's going to be tough, but show no mercy);
(3) on the other side, do the same thing - pliers to move clamp, then pull hose out;
(4) pull the electrical connector out (be a little careful with this. The electrical connector may be brittle. You might do better using a flat head screwdriver to force it out.)
(5) Push the purge valve towards the driver side (the purge valve has ring around it so that it locks onto a bracket that holds it in place. That ring just slides off.);
(6) Keeping the new purge valve in the same orientation, reconnect all hoses and the connector;
(7) Slide the purge valve ring onto the bracket;
(8) Using pliers, slide the clamps back into place.

Hopefully, that helps.

KingDummett is an unknown quantity at this point
Thumbs up

rk0601 Thanks for the guide, It took me 5 mins to swap it out. The hardest part was the connector which as you said a flat head works perfectly.

Three years later, and this thread is still coming in handy! I just used this thread this morning as a guide to do the job on a 2002 Sonata V6,and found it very helpful.

But to make things easier, let me just say that the purge control valve is actually up on top, behind the intake manifold. Looking at the firewall, it's slightly to the passenger's side of the center; look for the VIN sticker on the firewall itself, and the valve is right underneath it.

One thing I didn't expect - but should have, because it's there in Step 5, I must have missed it, lol - was that the valve slides into and out of a circular bracket. The hoses on each end came off easily, and yes, that electrical clip was a bear to get loose.

Thanks to rk0601 for the help!

This is a very do-able project, for even the most green of novices

By the way, the problem appears to be solved, as the CEL hasn't come back on (knock on wood, lol).The part# for the '02 Sonata purge control valve is 2891022040,andI paid $48.44 plus tax.

I saw it online for around $39, but there was $15 shipping.
