The evap canister should be under the driver rear quarter almost by the gas door/cap.

The evap purge solenoid should be on the passenger side of the intake about mid way down. That is...if the OBDII cars are like the OBDI.

OBDII should be the same as OBDI, here's the purge solenoid:







From the past 10 years about 90% of Ford trucks are still on the road, the other 10% made it home.

I've never thought to inspect it for debris. The canister in the back of the car is often called a charcoal canister if i remember correctly.

yea its your canister. its breaking up inside. its filled with charcoal to help emissions. change it out with a new one the canister that is and then the line that goes to the evap switch up front disconnect it and get no more than 30 psi and blow it threw the line to get all that crap out.
