Super instructions! Corrected this after the intermittent problem decided to show itself to the state inspection guy!

The bottom hose is a bear to remove. I guess because it is so near the engine heat source.

Thanks for doing the work getting both the instructions and the pictures online for the rest of us...

Sardonic,

Excellent instructions. 30 minutes or less is all it takes, barring any hoses that put up a fight. Oh yeah, that timing is good, if you re-read the instructions one last time before you actually start on the replacement.

It was a simple job with excellent instruction....

Thanks for your efforts.

Thanks for the kudos; I'm happy to know that you and others are able to save some money with the instructions because it's an easy fix.

BTW, was your bottom hose hell to get off? I just remember twisting and twisting and twisting and twisting, etc...until it finally dislodged.

Maybe an Admin will throw this DIY on the homepage, so members can find it easier...

Yes, indeed. The bottom hose was the worst, but the others were a challenge as well. Twisting the bottom hose with "downward" pressure finally dislodged it....

I replaced that purge valve to clear the codes so the safety inspection would pass, now I'm replacing fuel filter/ regulator and checking fuel pressures...... I have sparadic cylinder 4 ignition with fuel off.... Lots of threads about that one... :-)

So I bought the part and for kicks I ask the Service Advisor how much for something like this installed. He came back and quoted me 3 hours of work plus diagnostics. Roughly $600 of labor! WTF!

It took me 3 days LOL! I had to do it 3 times, but I'm good at it now!

I went over to a friend's Aamco to get the codes deleted and he looked it up and said he'd only charge me a 1/4 hours labor to do it...I said no way! He said that's what his online quoting system said and he only charges $80/hr for labor...next time he'll be doing mine

I would just be guessing but if you have an Aamco up there maybe they calculate the job off the same system?
