Is the Evap Purge Valve something that can be cleaned to restore normal function, or will it need to be replaced with a new valve?

I've getting tired of stalling out at stoplights...

Thanks,

Tom

I assume your car is a T5 so my experience will not 100% apply.

My car is a T7 (2000) and I was getting the gross evap leak code (P0455 I think). I swapped the gas caps between my two cars and the code stayed with the car (ie not the gas cap). Next I removed and tested the evap purge valve with a 12V source, it was clicking (very short pulse to avoid the chance of burning out the solenoid). I then sprayed the evap valve with some MAF cleaner and then with some WD40. I did not see any crap coming out but since I did this the code has not come back.

Could also be a faulty turbo bypass valve? I bought a used evap valve off the bay for £12 delivered FYI.
