      DTC P0497 keeps coming back

      I've had the "P0497 - Evaporative Emission System Low Purge Flow" coming back over and over for a couple of weeks. What can be the cause of this? Is this one of the codes that can be related to a trivial thing as a faulty gas cap?

      Purge valve probably stuck (assuming closed position since flow is low)
      You probably need to replace either the canister or the control valve, but I have no idea which is causing your issue. Tascaparts.com sells both.
