Hey, how's everyone doing?
I have always wondered about and have been confused by some of the info in the bentley regarding the n-80 charcoal canister purge valve.
The Bentley talks about two possible purge valves being utilized through 1996, a blue and a black one, normally open or normally closed at rest being the difference. (So, big difference.) They never really specify or I didn't figure out how to determine which vehicles are using which valves. The schematics for all MK3 years just list it as n80 and all srawn the same way...
My car is a 1995 gti vr6, the evap system consists of a charcoal canister that has a drain at the bottom, and a line going to the fuel tank gravity valve, and a line going to the purge valve. There is no original LDP or vent solenoid like on later cars. My car has a black n-80 valve on it and I'm starting to think that it needs a blue one. I am having trouble finding a part reference for the blue one, it seems that most parts houses only have the black one and list it as compatible for models that I would not expect, or I'm not looking properly.
Anyone have the P/N for that blue valve?
