Is the purge valve a DIY job?

I need to replace the purge valve on my 2016 Kia Sportage. Can’t find any info as to where this part is located. Trying to decide if I can do it myself… Thank you!

The Purge Valve is part of the emissions system. So that should be covered by the vehicle warranty even if you are not the original owner . Check with the Kia dealer before you do anything that might void that warranty. Emissions are covered longer that your bumper to bumper warranty.
