I have a 2014...

I have a 2014 Ford Focus and a check engine light. ODB-2 is returning a P144A - replace evap purge control valve

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Stay on

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Focus yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am trying but I have not started because there seems to be confusion on the location of the valve

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I dont think so

Hold on. I have just a valve from AutoZone (Duralast PV516). It is not the entire cable harness from the firewall running between the battery box & engine, running underneath the air intake tube.I just have a valve. Is this valve mounted under the air intake tube near the engine?

They sold you the wrong part

Ok. Funny AutoZone ran the check engine light, told me the code, and brought up the part right as I stood there. UGH!So to fix P144A troublecode, I need the cable harness you described in the directions? Any idea what the original Ford part number is?

You need to return it and ask specifically for the evaporative purge control valve

They gave you correct diagnostic information, just sold you the wrong part

Here is the duralast part you need - PV965 - see attached

It is not a cable harness - it is a purge valve with preattached vacuum hoses

Ok.. well, I gotta go back to AutoZone and swap out the parts

HI,

Ok, sounds good and just follow the directions I provided to replace it. Takes about 40 minutes start to finish to replace it.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
