    Hello folks.....

    I'm new here, just purchased my first Toyota 4x4, it's a 2002 base with a 2.7 in it. I joined to hopefully to gain knowledge that my web searches have failed to produce. At the current time I am working on solving OBD code issues. I bought this truck super cheap, $1,000, and only 118,000 actual miles.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    This truck was parked for two reasons, the brake lines were leaking all over the rear (rust), and EVAP codes started popping. My first call was safety, so I went through the entire brake system, my buddy helped, done in a day, the only cost was parts, just under hundred dollars.

    Now comes the tricky part, trouble shoot/repair the EVAP (po441). I have already searched here for info, but didn't find an answer in archive, I looked at a bunch of YT videos to no avail, I need to speak with someone who has experience with carbon canister VSV's and bench testing of same.

    I found the VSV on the canister (located under the box, between the rear end and gas tank). I bench tested the VSV solenoid and found it was not actuating, it was stuck in the open position. As it stands, Toyota does not sell the VSV separately, the entire canister must be purchased. But...I did find many VSV's for sale on line, what I don't know is which type I need.

    Do I want one that is closed when not energized, or do I want one that's open when not energized?

    Because I found the one on the truck stuck in the open position I have no way of knowing if it stuck while energized or not.

    Welcome to TW, love your truck!
    Have you posted specifically your issue in the 1GEN section?
    Many folks do not read the member welcomes unfortunately.
    Post up a build thread too that will help answering questions

    Thank you for the welcome. I did post up in the Tech sub forum, got views but yet to get a reply. I'm on it though, kinda got it figured out. The VSV I need is the one on the canister, it serves as a stop when energized so that a vacuum leak test can be conducted. It is the final valve in the system and is closed when energized, when not in test mode it is open. This means that the valve is open most of the time and only closed for testing.

    I believe I have found a replacement which should work as a retro-fit.
    This valve I believe is open when not energized, and when testing vacuum it is energized and closed.
