The vent solenoid might be bad. You need to see If you are getting power to it. The computer provides a ground for the solenoid. You can test it by applying a power and a ground to the solenoid to see if it operates and open's and Close's. ( I am taking into V6 engine ).
Follow the 2 diagrams :-
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

You can bypass the heater core, you just wont have heat anymore. On the firewall of the truck, behind the engine, you will see 2 rubber heater hoses that go into the firewall. They attach to the heater core. Disconnect them and get a plastic connector, and connect the 2 hoses together with clamps to hold them down. This will stop coolant from going into the heater core, and no more leak.

P0449 has to do with the Evap System. The problem could be with wiring short circuit, Could be the EVAP canister purge valve or the ECM.
P0455 has to do with the evap system as well. Could be a leak in one of the hoses to the evap system so you need to check all lines to the evap system. There is also one hose that connects to the top of the tank that we have seen come loose. Could also be a intake leak or a problem with the Canister purge valve. You can fix these yourself somewhat. I would trace down all the lines first to see if anything has come loose under the vehicle to the Black plastic EVAP canisters. Without being able to check the valves you will probably have to take it to a shop to have them checked out or pay the price to replace the valves and gamble they are the problem.

That is laymans terms. That is why it is in your manual. You ,need to get up to speed ,on todays somewhat high tech vehicles.
Now you need to go to a shop that does EVAP testing, with a smoke machine,if necessary,or at least put a scanner on it ,and replace the vent valve solenoid,if bad.(again laymans part teminology,
