2008 Astra XE
Default Re: Emissions

I cleared the code and continued to drive. Code came back after 100 miles or so. Cleaning seemed to help, but I'm sure there's more crud inside where I can't get to.

I came across a write-up on how to disassemble and fully clean a Volvo Bosch purge valve, which looks very similar to ours. The difficult part would be splitting the glued case without breaking it. Then once you're inside, the o-rings could be toast anyway in which case it's best to just order the new one.

So I'm just going to buy the ACDelco 55562350 off Rockauto and be done with it. I'll report back after a few hundred miles of driving with it installed.
