kings97tj Ok cool thakns! I bought the sensor because it was only like 15 bucks.

JD Adams If you've replaced the sensor (why you did this before examining the canister and plumbing for a leak is a mystery to me,) might I suggest you find the cause of the problem, which is most likely a leak in the vacuum lines. Grab a vacuum pump, start pulling hoses and find the one that is leaking. It is most likely a split rubber hose or broken T-connector, or a malfunctioning solonoid controlling the system that is at fault. At best, something was accidentally knocked off the last time you worked on it.

1997 Wrangler Check Engine Light

I have a 1997 TJ with 2.5 and a 5 speed. It has a check engine light on. The reader said it was the purge sensor, purge canister, or vacuum leak. Replaced the sensor and was unable to find a vacuum leak. Reset the code, but the light is back on. Was curious if anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions? Thanks!
