Default Install - EVAP Purge Solenoid Valve CANYON

Hey all,
I recently purchased an EVAP Purge Solenoid Valve for my 2004 GMC Canyon and wish to install it. The part that I received from GMC is labeled as "valve evap em" on the package. I never installed one of these before and would like to know how I go about this and where I could find this part on my truck. I have searched online and can find any instructions or anything on it. Here is a picture of the item in the bag:


I can take other pictures if need be. Thanks in advance for any advice or help

Thanks all!

GM fail; no truck engine should have less torque than horsepower. Oh wait......it's an SUV with a bed.

Dude you totally rock! You know how long I have been looking for that. I just replaced the piece, I am so stoked man!

Question: Should I let the check engine light reset itself and if so, how long should it take. Is it on mileage or on how many engine recycles? I read that I can reset it myself by taking off the positive cable of the battery for 4 minutes than replacing. I need my truck inspected by the end of the month.

Thanks again bro! WOOT!

The CEL should go off after a certain number of engine on/off cycles, but you could swing by someplace like Autozone and have them clear the code for you. :D

I wish I would have seen this thread earlier....just had this done at the stealership. Cost me $256 that I didn't have. The part was $175 plus $60 labor and tax...is this about what you paid for the part? ($175)
