2003 Sport Trac XLT
I have a 2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac and I have a trouble code that's causing my check engine light to come on. I work at Autozone so i got it checked out and it was 2 different codes which are P0455 and P1450. Well both of them had the probable causing being the Canister/Purge Vent Valve Solenoid and also something to do with my gas cap, well i bought a new gas cap and swapped it out and disconnected my battery so the check engine light would go off. Well i drove the truck for 2 days and the light came back on I got my codes read again and same codes were still there I finally just bought the Vent Valve and was going to swap it out yesterday problem was I didnt know where it was located. If you guys could please help I would surely appreciate it.
