2010 GL450 Purge valve
Just bought my 2010 GL450 2 wks ago with only 400 miles in it. A bit disappointed because CEL came on las night while driving; called roadside assistance, gas cap was mentioned as cause, recommended to retighten it and CEL will disappear it 6-8 hours. The following morning CEL is still on, took it to dealer, and this was its findings: Mechanical Fault PUrge valve; TC found P2421 mechanical fault Y58/1, noted purge control valve was permanently open. Solution: guided test, remove hoses, replaced valve, cleared DTC, evap test passed.
I asked service advisor what has caused this:
--- not loose gas cap
--- faulty purge valve from factory
Now i am wondering given this brand, quality control shld be at best; and for something to fail this early...
Anybody out there has experienced this?
I hope this will only be the problem with my car from hereon, at least for several thousand miles...
thanks for your input.
