Hah, always thought that sound was coming from the throttle position sensor on the throttle body. The part number for the vapor canister purge valve/solenoid is etched directly on the front.
The sound does come from the throttle body.

Yes that too. But if you listen when you shut the car off you can hear it at the throttle body

Lools like I will be changing my purge valve too. My car does this after a fill up also. Ive even tried filling it while its idling. She idles rough a minute or two.

Its not an expensive fix, $100 or so when I did mine, car was out in less than an hour.
Mine was done at the dealer.

Had the same problem. Part was less than $50 shipped from rockauto.com, corrected the issue instantly. Was happening on every fill-up, had many fill-ups since replacing the valve with no further issues. Took 15 minutes and only two swear words which were not even any of the big ones.
