Q: Will a purge solenoid eat up gas

asked by on

Will a purge solenoid eat up gas?

My car has 97000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

A: If the he purge valve is open all the time ...

If the he purge valve is open all the time it may cause the fuel tank to go into a vacuum and cause the gas to vaporize more than it should. You should not see very much loss of fuel mileage with this kind of problem.

If you're having issues, consider YourMechanic, as one of our mobile technicians can come to your home to diagnose your loss of fuel mileage firsthand and help you make the necessary repairs.
