I was told already told it's the pcv... But I don't know where it's located at or where to purchase it
Expert:  Ron Z. replied 5 months ago.
Ahh. Ok. That's correct, the most common problem associated with this is the Purge Control Solenoid Valve (PCSV). They're actually quite common fail items on these vehicle. It's located on the rear of the engine, towards the driver's side, about mid-way down. Make sure to carefully inspect the rubber lines for any cracks, holes or disconnections. And the electrical connector and wire harness for any loose, broken or damaged wires.

Hi! I noticed this thread was still open and wanted to check in and see how you made out? Did you find the PCSV? Were there any other questions you had on this issue?
