My 2019 MKC Engine light turned on, and the diagnostic results were more than one Code, TECH guy said its mostly likely the Evap Purge Valve and that its open. Question: Has anyone had these issues?

not I.
At least it's under warranty
and make sure when the fuel pump shuts off -- don't try to top it off with a little more. Doing so can have a negative effect on the EVAP

Just replaced mine a couple weeks ago, my car wouldn’t start whenever it filled up with fuel, purge valve is part of a large vacuum system of hoses, I found the dorman made one that you can cut in section in for 30 bucks on rock auto!!

So far so good for me.

My wife's 2016 just started throwing the P1450 code. I tried to get a replacement evap purge assembly but every supplier I have tried says they are backordered, no word on when any will arrive. Yesterday I ordered the Dorman splice in valve you did - any tips on doing the install?

It was quite simple for me to do it. I initially made my cuts too short and had to cut it down a little bit more but the hardest part was ensuring a straight cut, I used a razor blade, But I think anything would work. The little rubber piece that holds the purge valve will rotate on itself so I rotated the rubber piece to line up with the original design. I pulled the entire Air intake to the top passenger side of the motor and took the airbox out for room. I can’t think of anything else to tell you to make it an easier. I hope that helps!!

Replaced it today. Took about 30 minutes - would have been quicker but my 8mm socket fell down onto the splash pan and I had to take that down to get it back.
Just for giggles I tried blowing through the old one. It wasn't wide open but I could pass air through it. The new one was closed tight.
I'm going to order another for my 2015 before they run out of these splice in solenoids too. If it's that common a problem I might as well be ready.
Tools:
8mm socket for bellows clamps
7mm socket for upper air intake clamp and hold down bolt
Something to cut the plastic hoses. I used electrician dikes.

Hello Copbait,
My 2015 MKC has the same problem now, but I didnt find where is the value, can you share a picture of the value in vehicle?

I don't have the car anymore. The valve is to the driver's side of the engine, above the transmission. It sits below the intake tube that leads from the air box to the back of the engine
