What year is your car? It can be right by the throttle body, or right by the coils. It'* a small plastic rectangle box with vacuum lines and a wire plug on it. I assume this is the EVAP purge valve you are talking about.

Those rubber vaccuum lines love to dry rot, one broke on me and you could smell the gas fumes
