Did you check the capless system?Can or will someone give me insight on the exact location of the purge valve. I have been told its under the fuel pressure regulator but no such luck finding it. I have a 2013 focus SE. Throwing a code P0456 so I'm gonna work from there
Sometimes the cap less system doesn't close all the way. Usually can stick the funnel in and out a couple times and it'll fix the issue.
You need an OBD2 reader (PC or Standalone unit) and FORSCAN to reset the MIL/CEL.So no such luck with that situation. Funnel in and out a few times and it doesn't seem to be making the light go out. I've tried resetting it with the neg battery terminal off for like 30 min but as soon as I turn the key the CEL doesn't go out and the code is still there. Anymore suggestions would be great.
This will eliminate the loud, annoying ticking noise you can hear from inside the passenger cabin. Unless you have another issue, it should fix the idle, too (I was only just starting to get a rough idle, and there's no trace of that since).To be clear, this doesn't make the ticking nose go away. There will still be a fair amount of ticking due to the DI right?
Your problem is more than likely the purge valve: it is a common failure on Ford vehicles, and not just on the Focus. I had a purge valve fail on my 2011 Escape as well as the one on my 2013 Focus.so the valve under my hood when plugged in has full vacuum at all times and when its unplugged has zero. would that be the purge valve or the solenoid on the canister? i gotta buy one just dont want to buy both
