How did you fit a 400 big block in your explorer?;)

Where is the evap valve located? Is there a useful wiring diagram?

Thanks for your help.

Check the evap valve beneath the battery tray-sometimes battery acid will drip on it and melt a hole in a hard to see location.

there is another evap valve and sensor near the evap tank assembly, which is on the left side of the spare tire. You may want to lower the spare to access it well.
