EVAP Two Way Valve Test

1.Remove the fuel cap.

2.Disconnect the vapor line from the EVAP two way valve (A). Connect it to a T-fitting (B) from the vacuum gauge (C) and the vacuum pump (D) as shown.

 

3.Apply vacuum slowly and continuously while watching the gauge.
The vacuum should stabilize momentarily at 0.8-2.1 kPa (6-16 mmHg, 0.2-0.6 in.Hg).
If the vacuum stabilizes (valve opens) below 0.8 kPa (6 in.Hg), or above 2.1 kPa (16 mmHg, 0.6 in.Hg), install a new valve and retest.

4.Move the vacuum pump hose from the vacuum fitting to the pressure fitting, and move the vacuum gauge hose from the vacuum side to the pressure side (A) as shown.

 

5.Slowly pressurize the vapor line while watching the gauge. The pressure should stabilize momentarily above 1.0 kPa (8 mmHg, 0.3 in.Hg).

  • If the pressure momentarily stabilizes (valve opens) above 1.0 kPa (8 mmHg, 0.3 in.Hg), the valve is OK.
  • If the pressure stabilizes below 1.0 kPa (8 mmHg, 0.3 in.Hg), install a new valve and retest.
