I have attached a description of the evap system which includes the purge valve. The valve is located on the firewall near the large PCM connector on the RH side. It is a valve with 1 electrical connector, two larger plastic lines and a smaller vacuum line attached to it. Let me know if you need more information.

 

Thanks,

Tim
