Evap canister may have seized. It's located somewhere underneath the driver's side rear tire. More underneath the trunk. It's near a black box.

I think

Just after replacing my knock sensor, I'm getting these three EVAP-related codes:

P0446 - 0903
P1447 - 0111
P0440 - 0705

Is it likely I could have damaged my EVAP control valve or knocked a harness loose possibly?

To fix my 0903 code. I just swapped out the valve. The valve is attached to the charcoal canister and is held on by 2 10mm bolts. I swapped that out and I haven't gotten any check engine light back.

now is this valve at the back of the car near the gas tank or under the hood? I was thinking the canister is in the back. Hope I replace the right thing.

When i got that code i went to the evap canister and noticed one of the wires was completely corroded through so there was no connection. I put new wires in the harness, hooked it back up and it works fine.

I've been getting 0705 and 0309 SES lights.... I thought for a while it was the charcoal canister, but after some readings, I'm thinking it may be the EVAP valve in the engine.... I went to the dealership and they were going to sell me the canister for about $50 and the valve switch for $35. Does this sound right? I'm not sure at this point... It's so much different than what I've been reading.

Recommend taking the valve apart and try to fix it yourself, especially if it's a matter of wire/contact corrosion or bad spring - there is another discussion about the topic. Recommendation from that discussionwas to replace the spring. I'll try anything once to save $100-$150.

Ok, I took the valve apart and everything looks good, spring and internal parts are in excellent condition, contacts have absolutely no corrosion or anything. Put everything back together with the connector hooked up, ignition on, blow through the nipple thing and the valve was closed, no air getting through, with ignition off I can blow through it, so the valve is function properly I assume. But after driving for couple miles the CHECK engine light came back with the same code 1008.....WTF? check harnesses and they're good, no blown fuse either....please help!!

This vent control valve can throw an 1008 code?

i swapped the purge control valve, purge volume control valve after getting a 1008. gas cap is fine. still getting code so i should look towards the vent control valve?

EVAP Canister Purge Volume Control Valve disassembly

so I got the 1008 code on my inspection. I followed the Nissan manual's instructions for troubleshooting. Checking the EVAP CPVCV,

One is supposed to see ~31 ohms betwen the center and the left & right connectors of the valve. That is,

one's supposed to see 31 ohms between contacts on 2&3, 2&1, 5 &6, 5&4.
There was no contact (inf. ohms) between 2 & 1, and since I read that the valve is basically just a stepper motor, I decided to take it apart to see if it was just a loose solder joint or something I could fix myself.

here's the valve:

and again:


Taking off three screws on the plastic end reveals the motor insides:

EVAP Canister purge Volume Control Valve disassembly

(continued)
Click the image to open in full size.

I then took the solenoid assembly (the stacked thing on the plastic part) apart, to see if I could fiddle with the contact enough to fix it:
Click the image to open in full size.

Unfortunately, no amount of fiddling fixed that contact. I soldered the solenoids back on, put the thing together, and installed it back into the car. I still don't want to pay $180 for it, so I'll try finding one of these things on a junkyard to get a working solenoid out of. Stay tuned.

Is that the purge volume control valve?

My dealer has diagnosed that as my problem but wants to charge 2 hours labor plus parts to change it.
