    i changed the evap cannister but didnt fix. the problem. change ur fuel tank and gas cap. will fix all plus future problem. cuz u will see the problem with the evap leak and that would be ur gas tank cap. teh problem not able to fill is due to gas tank. see u are covered under the recall if not need to buy a gas tank

I have the same problem with my 2005 sentra. It is the vent control valve. The only cheap way to fix this would be to take it off and spray wd-40 and see if it works. You could also get the part form a junk yard. Nissanpartsdirect also has it. I beleive it is officially called the vapor canister.

I have replaced the canister, vent valve,purge valve, pressure sensor,egr valve and much more and still this light is appearing. I am ready to set this car on fire. Nissan sentra has the worst evap system and the dealer can not even fix it so time to light a match.
