Can I use a camry or another model purge valve ?
Montreal, Quebec Canada
I asked the same question on here six months ago (2000 LE). The only answer I got was to try one and see if it works. I found that to be a rather disappointing answer, since if it didn't work, what else might get screwed up? I haven't tried any, and the question obviously still lingers.
Is there any other source that you can think of that might definitively provide an adequate answer? The dealers aren't interested because all they want is to sell new canisters. They aren't happy that we don't want to get ripped off.
I finally was able to "rebuild/clean" the rust out of the vsv piston, and got it to function again. The dealer said I needed a new canister which was total BS..
But I still want to know whether vsv's from other cars would work. I would buy a used one on Ebay, but I can't find one for my Corolla. They all appear to be for 4Runners, Camrys, Suzukis and pickups, and I'm not willing to risk it at this point.
The question we've asked deserves an answer, so I guess I'll just have to keep trolling forums til I find it.
I know this post doesn't help anyone, but at least I feel better after venting.
