isnt emission system stuff covered for like 100,000 and 8 or 10 years? if this is for the emission system then it should be covered, right

It took forever to find it in the service manual.. even with using the search/find feature.. under the steering column.. says to remove it from underneath

The proportional purge solenoid controls the purge rate of fuel vapors from the vapor canister and
fuel tank to the engine intake manifold. The solenoid attaches to a bracket near the steering
gear (Fig. 3). The solenoid will not operate unless
it is installed correctly.
(1) Raise vehicle and support.
(2) Disconnect electrical connector from solenoid.
(3) Disconnect vacuum tubes from solenoid.
(4) Remove solenoid from bracket.

how hard is it to do that? and is it underneth the engine like back near the firewall? and what do i need to remove to get to it? or is it on the inside of the car? what would be better buying the senor for 51 dollars or letting the dealership do it for 300 to 400?

in engine compartment..theres a big black round thing on the firewall driver side right where the steering wheel would come out. it should be by/under that.. shouldn't be that hard it talks about removing it as a prestep in fixing other stuff just to get it out of the way

I would reseat any hoses or electrical connectors on it before replacing it. Clear it, see if it comes back.
