    In short heres what the valve does....
    The canister purge (CANP) solenoid valve regulates
    the amount of evaporative vapors drawn from the
    carbon canister into the engine. The CANP solenoid
    valve is controlled by the PCM and opens a passage
    between the carbon canister and the intake manifold.
    Just emissions crap, thats all...

    Whoa, when i bought one a few years ago it was like $15.00, did you check GM? BTW, you can drive for a couple of days with it broken - it just for the evaporation from the fuel tank.
