#130 of 178 Can't Put gas into 1991 Ford Escort
Jul 14, 2010 (9:11 pm)
Everytime I try to put gas in, the sensor shuts off the nozzle. I'm told I have to replace the Purge Solenoid, but Ford no longer sells it and I need a part number.
When researching online, I see a "starter solenoid" but not a Purge Solenoid.
What exactly am I looking for? A valve, a sensor or electrical part? Please point me
in the right direction. I don't want to have to replace the entire gas tank for a small part. Car out of commision since I'm told the fumes are not escaping and the car can blow up in this heat (northeast). Mechanic won't store car in his shop for fear of this. Thanks.

A Google search on the phrase "purge solenoid" produced *lots* of results.
One of the results was from autozone.com, which suggests that this part will be available through your local parts dealer (which is usually the case when the dealer doesn't carry the part, anyway).
#132 of 178 Now- it's a Fuel Tank Vent Valve or Fuel Vapor Valve
Aug 05, 2010 (9:39 am)
I need two of part number F0CZ9B593B. Problems is I only found one, the part is no longer made or sold and I have no idea what this thing looks like. I've been researching on the web and have found tons of info on emission control and such. But it doesn't help me find this part that is no longer made, therefore, I can't find a picture. Any help will be appreciated.

Yeah, I am not really sure about that part. There is a vapor canister purge solenoid and purge valve, but I don't know about a vent valve for the fuel tank itself. Have you taken apart the system on your car?

did you ever get a resolution to the problem? My sons 2000 with 101k miles is doing the same thing. the latest dealer fix was an egr solenoid and a replacement vacuum hose. they have replaced maf, fuel pump, coil, plugs, pcv, air filter. same code keeps coming up. any information is appreciated. thanks.
#136 of 178 engine trouble light 2001 ford escort

Actually glad that you asked. We still have that engine light come on I just took car in to have the timing belt replaced and had them check on engine light warning. He said that it was indicating that the egr selnoid was not working so he first cleaned it and thought he unstuck it. It came back on and when I took it back he said that the egr selnoid had just been replaced recently. I probably had V.I.P. do it last year. Light came back on after they turned it off. Wish I had an idea on why it comes back. We have 170,000 on the 2001 and replacing timing belt was amazing really smoothed it out. It actually is running great but light still coming on. Back to the shop. Let me know if you have any luck. Header1974

we are having the same kind of issue as we speak . maybe since then you've had some progress that might help us out. we are leaning towards electrical short of some type because car was running just fine only we took it in to find out why our a/c wasn't working and while engine was running the mechanic was checking under the hood all the power and checking for electrical failure and while test something on drivers side near electrical box the car cut off (not stall) on its own. when we tried to restart it wouldn't even catch a spark. then we went through similar process as you did.we replaced fuses, fuel filter and theres fuel pressure, and spark plugs are good, any ideas?
#138 of 178 Found one part,still need another
Sep 20, 2010 (1:35 pm)
Since it's been two months already, my car still sits at the mechanics. Thank God he doesn't charge me. I found one part in Alabama. But need a second one. NO ONE HAS IT. Just called AL again and they tried a search for the second one. No luck.
If you can find someone in the junk yard with the part, please let me know, since I've been told they don't keep parts like valves. But that was one Auto Wrecker in the area. It is a fuel vapor valve or fuel tank vent valve, part # FOCZ9B593B for a 91 Ford Escort. I would hate to junk my car because of a stupid valve. Somebody has to have a solution. AL is sending me a photo of what they call part #9B593. Hopefully that will help me find it on ebay. Good Luck with your cars and I'll let you know what happens.
#139 of 178 2000 ford station wagon

I have a 2000 ford focus 5 door wagon. Had problems driving would not go above 30 miles per hour. Took it to dealer, and was told there is a problem in 2000 wagons and I had to pay $250.00 to fix it, or $2500.00 to replace engine. I was told there is no recall issued on it, and that a possible fix to the problem was to paint the inside for $250.00 or replace engine for $2500.00. Does not make sense to me, and that the problem is known, but the company did not take action, and notify the owners of the car of a possible problem under the hood. Has anyone else had this problem?
