Nissan Maxima Service and Repair Manual: P0448 evap canister vent control valve

Description

Nissan Maxima. Description

The EVAP canister vent control valve is located on the EVAP canister and is used to seal the canister vent.

This solenoid valve responds to signals from the ECM. When the ECM sends an ON signal, the coil in the solenoid valve is energized.

A plunger will then move to seal the canister vent. The ability to seal the vent is necessary for the on board diagnosis of other evaporative emission control system components.

This solenoid valve is used only for diagnosis, and usually remains opened.

When the vent is closed, under normal purge conditions, the evaporative emission control system is depressurized and allows "EVAP Control System" diagnosis.

1.PRECONDITIONING

If DTC Confirmation Procedure has been previously conducted, always perform the following before conducting the next test.

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF and wait at least 10 seconds.
  2. Turn ignition switch ON.
  3. Turn ignition switch OFF and wait at least 10 seconds.

2.PERFORM DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE

With CONSULT

  1. Turn ignition switch ON and wait at least 5 seconds.
  2. Turn ignition switch OFF and wait at least 10 seconds.
  3. Turn ignition switch ON and select "DATA MONITOR" mode with CONSULT.
  4. Start engine and let it idle for at least 1 minute.
  5. Repeat next procedures three times.

    - Increase the engine speed up to between 3,000 and 3,500 rpm and maintain that speed it for 2 minutes and 50 seconds to 3 minutes.

    Never exceed 3 minutes.

    - Fully released accelerator pedal and keep engine idle for about 5 seconds.

  6. Repeat next procedure 20 times.

    - Quickly increase the engine speed up to between 4,000 and 4,500 rpm and maintain that speed it for 25 to 30 seconds.

    - Fully released accelerator pedal and keep engine idle for at least 35 seconds.

  7. Check 1st trip DTC

2.CHECK DRAIN FILTER

3.CHECK EVAP CANISTER VENT CONTROL VALVE

4.CHECK IF EVAP CANISTER IS SATURATED WITH WATER

Nissan Maxima. CHECK IF EVAP CANISTER IS SATURATED WITH WATER

  1. Remove EVAP canister with EVAP canister vent control valve and EVAP control system pressure sensor attached. Refer to FL-14, "Removal and Installation (EVAP Canister)".
  2. Check if water will drain from the EVAP canister.

5.CHECK EVAP CANISTER

Weigh the EVAP canister with the EVAP canister vent control valve and EVAP control system pressure sensor attached.

The weight should be less than 2.1 kg (4.6 lb).

6.DETECT MALFUNCTIONING PART

Check the following.

  • EVAP canister for damage
  • EVAP hose between EVAP canister and drain filter for clogging or poor connection

7.CHECK EVAP CONTROL SYSTEM PRESSURE SENSOR CONNECTOR

  1. Disconnect EVAP control system pressure sensor harness connector.
  2. Check that water is not inside connectors.

8.CHECK EVAP CONTROL SYSTEM PRESSURE SENSOR

9.CHECK INTERMITTENT INCIDENT
