Hi, all. I have a 2004 Hyundai Sonata GLS (V6) and have a problem. After fueling gas, it is hard to start engine. So I had a check up at the local Hyundai service center, and the mechanic said that I need to change purge control valve. They ask me to pay ~ $250. So I want to change it by myself. Do you have any idea how I can change the valve?

Here's the diagrams from hmaservice.com, although I wouldn't try to buy the part unless I was sure about the part number. I'd remove the part and look at it, write down the part number. You can try to clean it too. Take it off and spray some carb cleaner in it first, it might do the trick. To test it, try to suck air through it when you get it off. If you can suck air, it's not working.

Every day sale item at Hyunda & Kia dealer (Sonata & Optima is same car)

Visit your local dealer for the part... take you 20 minutes to change if engine hot... less if cold.

Dont bother looking at sintons pictures,,, first pic is typical 4 cyl and 3.5 V6... 2.7 is different

Second pic is poor drawing of 2.4L 4 cylinder..

Thanks for the diagram, that was an easy fix. Took about 10 minutes to replace. I found the part online for $19.99 + $5 S&H from RockAuto.com. They shipped fast, I got it 2 days after I placed order.

Hyundai purge solenoid

I have 2004 Hyundai Sonata, 2.7 with 220000 miles and I have same problem. With mine, I have to change solenoid about every six months. Thank you Dorman for limited lifetime. I know this is old post, but was wondering if any one is having this recuring problem,

I know a couple of guys who had to replace the purge control valve every other year... yes, it looks like a recurring issue for many.
