    Great video. I have a question related to this. Does the purge vavle effect fuel trim? Its hot here (44 c) abd the purge valve is around 20% open more or less. And my ltft is -14 to -20. No engine light.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ozzstar's Cars says:

    Good info Mr. O.. For those that don't have a fancy pants bi-directional scan tool the purge valve is easy enough to bench test. All you need is a 12 volt source and your lungs. A vacuum pump wouldn't hurt to have either. 😉

    Hi Eric, are you using a different camera in past month or so? A lot of recent videos will get audio out of sync with video and video does a slow down or maybe its losing frames. I just watch a very old SMA video and it played perfectly. I thought it was a Google update on this phone but don't think so. I can fix the out of sync audio and slow video by a click to Forwarding to next video then click to reversing back to the video having the problem. Anyone else seeing the out of sync audio? Also sometimes the video freezes, the forward the reverse also fixes this. Looks like it started problem 2-3 months ago spot checking videos.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Snake Skin Productions says:

    Right again o great one..lol I always check with a vacuum gauge along with the purge and seal test. Got to be sure, for sure…lol

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars super coupe says:

    now i can blow the dust off my vacuum gauge since you showed me a good use for it, thanks Eric O

    can snap on scanners do the ford purge and seal test? (turning the vent on and purge at same time)

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Deyvid Cardoso says:

    excellent your videos, here in Brazil the OTC and SNAPON scanners are very expensive, AUTEL does not have to sell. I really admire the quality and variety of tools you have. very good.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Texas Pipeliner says:

    Good v ideo. Weren't units on Autel actually psi and not inHg?

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Niamh Healy says:

    Ahhhh I feel better after a fix of SMA. I can go make dinner now 😂

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars spelunkerd says:

    On paper, EVAP problems should be easy, they are very simple systems. But just like a bowline knot, simple design can be deceivingly complex.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars john smith says:

    Have GM 3800 engine. OBD2 indicated bad purge valve/solenoid. Bought one …went to r&r and discovered that someone had applied electrical tape over the connector on one of the nylon vacuum lines. Removed tape and found the connector was cracked. Do they make replacement end connectors for these lines or do I have to replace the whole assembly? Also will check engine light go off by itself when computer recycles or must code be cleared? Thanks

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Davis says:

    MORE Hanna videos please. I like to see women work.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Davis says:

    Wouldn't it been nice if we could have gone to a class like Eric O.'s instructional,, instead of English Lit.??

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 29 auto says:

    "rev up your engines" oh crap wrong channel…hahaha!

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Icecream Cohen says:

    I'm trying to test this but the scantool won't allow me to open the purgevalve while it's running (it's says conditions have to be met, which includes engine off), got any tips? I find it really strange how you're supposed to test a purge without vaccuum, scantool is Autel Maxisys.

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Disgruntled Mechanic says:

    Your parts will be ready for the crapper, if you order from Napper! Nice video as always Eric!
