Customer Question
After checking purge valve solenoid...
I have a 97 Cadillac deville with an incorrect purge flow. After checking purge valve solenoid and connecting lines I noticed there was a line that was disconnected. After further inspection the whole arrangement looked strange. Cant seem to find anything online about 97 devilles. Need to know where the lines connect?
