    code p0496: Purge Flow Fault...Easy fix?

    Hey,
    So a CEL came up yesterday.
    p0496: EVAP emissions high: Purge Flow Fault

    After a little research it looks like this could be caused by a dirty purge valve....does anyone know where this Purge valve is located at?

    My guess is it's related to the dyno tune you just had done..... Maybe running rich?

    If he tuned it, a dyno tune, and it says "EVAP emissions high" I'm going to assume it's something to do with that.

    ...............Although from the sounds of it it looks like it could be something with the intake manifold's vaccume being as a undesired level, like a leak in your air intake or something. You play with your intake at all lately???

    Just so everyone knows, I will verify that the P0496 code is Not related to Cookie getting a dyno tune as ahun stated. I know because I just got one today and I dont have my tune in my car now. But until advised otherwise I'll just clear it with the DH and keep the pedel to metal
