Those usually get replaced. Why do you think you need it? Engine code?

Free probably is not going to happen. I would look at several youtube videos on your car for this part and see how easy it is. You may be able to fix it cheap if that is your issue. Several auto parts places will read the engine codes for free.

Usually, anyone doing repairs of auto emissions equipment should be able to help you. (What you are looking to do is have the purge valve cleaned. The solenoid just activates it and doesn’t get dirty.)
Car starting problem: Be sure not to overfill the gas tank when filling. When the nozzle shuts off, STOP!
