Answer
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkgrMasd57s < that is a video on how to test the pressure sensor on 2002 silverado.

I have not heard of a purge solenoid however there is a pressure sensor and that could definitely be the problem.

Let me know if this helps. If you have any other info let me know so I can possibly help further.
