The purge control solonoid is responsible for controlling the vacuum system for the gas tank. Basically it forces the fuel vapors in the tank throught the charcoal canister.

Obviously removing this is bad from a federal emissions stardard point of view, but I dont think it will effect anything from a driveability standpoint. Mine has been broken for like 4 years now. It does throw a CEL. P1443.
