Hello I will help you with your question,

The purge valve/solenoid is mounted on the back of the intake manifold against the firwall. If you look for the steel line that has a rubber host on it that comes up from the rear of the vehicle that rubber hose connects to the purge valve and a shorter hose connects the valve to the manifold.

Rear center of the engine on the back of the manifold mounted on a steel bracket is the location

Please let me know how I can help you with this

Thank you
