2017 Kona Blue ST1
And just as a last piece of information over-kill the Ohms reading on a working EVAP purge valve should no more the 17 Ohms.
The contamination of the valve is coming from fuel tank vapors during purging?The oils that build up in the intake manifold rarely escape past the check valve I mentioned earlier. So it really won't help the purge valve at all. If oils are present on the valve sealing surface it's seeing boost. That will destroy it almost instantly. But great question!
The vapors are "filtered" through charcoal. If that becomes damaged it can potentially become dislodged and damage the valve seal. Or and this especially goes for people that refuel with the engine running, you can actually hear the engines tone change during the refueling process.The contamination of the valve is coming from fuel tank vapors during purging?
Thanks a lot for going the extra mile, really makes it easy to understand what is happening
I'm thinking I will allow you the opportunity to make a youtube video performing this on my car for free. It's the least I can do.And just as a last piece of information over-kill the Ohms reading on a working EVAP purge valve should no more the 17 Ohms.
I did not do the recall and won't; I changed my purge valve at 50,000 miles and will do it every 25,000 from here on.Interestingly enough i brought my 2014 ST to the Ford dealership for this recall/tsb. And it has jever seen the dealer before. But still they told me that my PCM had the latest software and no further fix was needed..... how is it possible that a 2014 had the latest software. Oh well. I guess i will follow up with this write up and still replace my purge valve

The age of your current calibration is the real issue. At some point the federal government changed the acceptable amount of leak (size of the hole) a "sealed" emissions system can have. A purge valve should only release the vapors stored within the charcoal canister under specified conditions. (Engine at operating temperature, X speed, X% throttle position, & certain fuel tank levels)So its not really needed to be said, dudes a genuis, helped me a ton through some crap. But @SSgtjrobertson you said the 2. Issue was people not being able to reinstall their accessports, is that like a not everyone kinda thing?
Cause I was one of the first people to get the 18s32 TSB or recall whatever they refered to it as....bandaid....and I had just uninstalled my accessport before I went in, and when I got back out I reinstalled it no issues. It pissed me off too coz they didnt even replace my valve or look at it for that matter, they just installed the pcm update, looked to see if it was throwin a code, it wasnt, so they assume that means purge valve is working?
Anyways was just curious if that was a blanket statement, or it hadnt happened to everyone but did happen to a few?
Again, as said amazing write up,...sir are you an alien? Lol
