Here's a good picture of the whole assembly from an Amazon page selling a replacement:



http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00M37PYXQ/

I just ordered one. My car is out of warranty, and replacement doesn't look too complicated once you remove the hose that connect the air filter box to the intake manifold. Not worth it to me to pay the dealer $300 to install a $40 part.
I know I'm quoting an old post. However just because your cars Bumper to Bumper is over, doesn't mean your Emissions is. Since EVAP is considered Emissions equip. it may be covered.

Reference the TSB & your manual for Emissions Warranty information.

This part is not covered under the emission warranty.

Squad G, Thanks for this excellent plan. Took me 45 minutes! The tips were the biggest help otherwise the recon would have added another 45 minutes. $50 & 45 minutes beats $300 or so at Ford dealer or garage. Again, thanks! DF
Your welcome!

It's not covered, I just got the code on my 2013 saying this part is "going" bad. Basically you can get the code, clear it and hope it doesn't come back but eventually this will fail.

Funny thing is this specific part is VERY common to fail on cars. My dad had a BMW where it also failed, and a buddy of mine had it fail on his Chrysler. Must be a cheaply designed part on an industry wide basis.

And changing it is a snap, takes 20 minutes.

Will be interesting to see if I can get a refund for the $100 out of pocket I paid to have mine replaced out of warranty...I who able to get Ford to refund only a portion of the repair because I argued it was part of the emissions warranty.

How far off is the gauges on this issue I ran out of fuel with 30 miles till empty. Think I have a issue?
In my vehicle, it depends on the conditions I'm driving in. If it was a cool morning(75 degrees or below), it will run out at about 18 miles to empty. If it's a hot and humid day, then my tank is dry between 45-50 miles till empty.

Agreed. Last year, dealer charged to replace my valve, acknowledged the tank issue, but wanted another $1,500 to fix it. I passed on that.

I just replaced mine last month. I surely hope that they do offer a refund but I'm sure they'll say it'll have to be a genuine Ford part in order to do a refund.

I just got a letter from Ford concerning the recall on the "Canister Purge Valve". It stated that they are in the process of manufacturing the parts and will send another letter when they are ready and I can schedule an apt at a dealer. This is on my 2015 Focus Hatchback. Here is what they said:

"...dealers will reprogram the Powertrain Control Module. Dealers will also check for fault codes and replace the CPV as needed. If the CPV is replaced, dealers will inspect and replace the carbon canister, fuel tank and fuel delivery module as necessary."

So they will not just replace the valve if it shows no signs of malfunction? I think I would rather have it replaced no matter what.

Don’t do it yourself let the dealer do it for free otherwise you may void warranty

It's too late for most of us. A lot of us have experienced this problem long before the recall notice. Our next move is to hope they'll honor our request for a refund.

If I remember correctly, the recall letter I received said that those who fixed the CPV on their own BEFORE the recall was issued would be eligible for reimbursement so if you do it yourself now, it might be a fight to get any money back.
