Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the vapor canister purge solenoid valve on this 2003 GMC Envoy XL. It's the same part and similar process on these XLs from 2002 to 2004. The items you'll need for this is a new vapor canister purge solenoid valve from 1AAuto.com, an 8 millimeter socket and ratchet, and a flat-blade screwdriver.

The vapor canister valve is right here. You want to just lift up on this tab and disconnect this harness and then just push in on the clip down here and then pull this hose up and out. Once that's removed, you can pull it right up and out.

On the left, is the old vapor canister purge solenoid valve. On the right, is the new one from 1A Auto. You can see they're identical, and they'll fit exactly the same. Take the gasket off your old vapor canister. Just wipe it off a bit and put it into place on your new canister. Push the bolt through and then just feed it down into place and tighten up that 10 millimeter bolt. Then reconnect your harness and push the hose back down into place until it re-clips. Then you're all set.
