need help getting code P1447

The code says it could be the EVAP canister purge volume control EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve. Can anyone tell me when this is located. THANKS

Pretty sure that the valve is in front of the canister that is near the rear driver's side tire. It is basically a solinoid, and it gets rusty. I have fixed mine by removing it (two bolts) and a couple of rubber hoses and an electrical connector , and then spray PB Blaster in the plunger, You can watch/hear your progress by energizingit with wires to the battery - momentarily. Pretty easy fix.

The EVAP canister vent control valve and the vacuum control bypass valve are both located on the EVAP canister under the rear of the car.

The EVAP canister purge valve and swirl control valve solenoid are in the engine compartment.

Which of these are you look for?

The information you said you're needing starts, for the most-part, on page EC-341 of the FSM ... that's why I provide you with that link.

What year model do you have?
A good thing to do when EVAP troubles begin is to blow out the line with compresses air. I had a canister that started leaking charcoal that clogged up the line. Then the canister was filled with mud and I couldn't tell the canister was leaking charcoal. Then I went through all kinds of headaches trying to figure out the problem. It turned out the line was heavily clogged with charcoal from a leaking canister.

its a 96. I found a broken egr valve guide tube replaced it, ( junkyard find $4 ) Reset codes nothing showed up now but a bad mass air flow circuit now. Now my rpms are all over the place. Gotta love old used cars. I can't complain I bought it 3 months ago for $1500 with 89,000 miles
