p0496 Code. Where is the Purge Solenoid?

Check engine light came on in the Girlfriends 2007 Outlook. Code P0496, " Evaporative emission system high purge flow" As best as I could search this forum and Google, I am going to replace the Purge solenoid. Problem is I do not know where to look on the car for this part.. Somehow NAPA had 1 in stock, so I plan to fix it this weekend.

Her symptoms incase anyone else needs to know beside the check engine light and code are, no start after putting any gas in it, and during the second attempt at starting, long crank time with the motor kind of sounding like it has a big cam in it for a second.

Thanks All
Tom

Id look for it in the area from the gas fill door- down to the area where the gas tank fill hose- meets the tank- id look around that area.

I believe the purge solenoid is mounted on the upper intake manifold.

Correct... if you are looking at the Throttle Body from the front of the vehicle, the Purge Solenoid sits just forward of the Throttle Body. It is held on by one bolt, and has one electrical connector and a vacuum line w/quick disconnect fitting attached to it.

Well, I'm blind.. I could not find the purge solenoid. I took a picture of the area around the throttle body with my phone. Will post the picture later if someone can point this thing out for me
