Hello everyone,

The purge valve solenoid seems to have gone bad in my 1994 taurus 3.8. I am getting error codes for the solenoid, and an occasional strong gas odor.

I have two questions... Is it possible to bypass the solenoid on this model somehow, since a new part isn't exactly cheap. And if there is some way to rebuild/repair the solenoid that I have? I have electronics and soldering experience. Just figured I would ask before I proceed.

Thanks!

That is the same thing i got when i did a KOEO( Key on engine off) test. Does not cause a CEL on my vehicle. Don't know if it matters too much if the vehicle isn't running. Hasn't been a problem.
