Most likely, the purge valve falls under the 80k mile emissions warranty. Mine is having issues too, and I'm past 80k miles, so I'll be on my own as well. They are only $20, so it's not even worth even going to the dealer for me to find out.
I need to know where you are getting this information......I can find nothing to support 5/80 (or even that time/mileage).Emissions is 5/80k...different than the 3/36 bumper to bumper, and the 5/100k powertrain. It is federally mandated to be at a minimum, 5/80.
YesIsnt the Purge Valve itself under the hood? on top of the intake manifold
Thanks for the visual!
