    I have a 96' Tacoma and there is a clicking sound coming from the driver side firewall. It is coming from what I believe is the purge valve or switching valve(is that the same thing)?

    It is pretty loud while driving and is constant unless im really on the gas. Is there something I can do to clean this part?

    What is causing this sound and what are my solutions?

    Its part number 25860-75100

    THank you in advance for all your help.

    I have done all the hi-pro mods for a life time, since I got this truck at a great price, I will be happy with showroom new.

    Thanks for posting that link. That is something I'd like to fix. The buzz sound I heard prior to the purge valve making the tick tick tick sound. The buzz would happen when the truck was off, it would buzz every so often for a period of time. Then a wk later or so the purge valve got much louder, not normal loud but beyond that. I have not listened for the buzz lately because the tick tick tick has had my attention. It is definitely coming from that small valve part.

    Does anyone know how i test this part to see if its bad?

    If I replace it does the noise of it go away?
