So I replaced my EVAP purge valve last year, just last week i had my car stall and die on me while idling and my gas tank was a little under 1/4 tank. I assumed it was related to this recall but since I replaced my EVAP purge valve over a year okay i wasn't sure. Anyone have any ideas? i'd rather not take my car to the dealer as it's tuned but obviously i don't want it dying on me if the gas tank gets low. I'm wondering if maybe they have a even newer version of the EVAP valve as maybe the one i replaced it with is bad.

I just replaced the BV6Z-9D289-B/ BV6Z-9D289-R Vapor Canister Purge solenoid and hose, and my wife reports that the car drives like it is brand new again. She'd been dealing with the power loss and hesitation for a long time and apparently this made an immediate difference.

I looked underneath a couple times over the last month but haven't seen any significant tank deformation.

And this is a 2014 5spd manual BTW. I have a strong suspicion that this purge valve problem has been misdiagnosed as a transmission fault on MANY dual clutch automatics! I can see how the behavior would seem a lot like a transmission problem.

Can I just confirm, the canister Purge valve mentioned in this thread is the valve located under the hood between the engine and air box? I know previously it was being called the EVAP purge valve. Is this the same thing?

Yes. This is the EVAP Purge Valve.

The recall is vague because it may be related to several components all affected due to the EVAP purge valve. The canister and the purge valve are connected with a tube.

yes it is the new part number as noted in the quote below. It likely was not available a year ago.

I have a 13 5spd manual and replaced the PCV with the new part number and my car has no idle/stall issues. It used to want to die after filling up.

It is $46 on Amazon with Prime and took 10min to swap. Just be careful of the coolant lines around as they're extremely brittle.
