The evap system is the vapor control of gasoline in the fuel tank it runs the whole length of the truck involving a vapor canister and vent control valves and purge valves of course hoses also.

SOURCE: replace passenger side mirror, power

Open the door. Look for a cheap piece of plastic near where the mirror is located. Carefully pry the plastic off. There are 3 bolts. There is a wire harness connector. Unbolt the mirror and unclip the harness. Installation is reverse of removal. Easy job.

SOURCE: Rear Main Oil Seal leak 2008 GMC Canyon

I think this is for an oil level sensor. Should be easy to change , or a shop can do it for a nominal charge. The dealerships will want more.

How to reset the antitheft system on a 2005 gmc canyon it turns but wont stay on what do i need to do an i need to know quick

If the truck has a factory anti-theft system, the system will not allow the engine to crank or start. So if it cranks, you have a different problem.

GMC Canyon problem DTC P0449

Code 449 is for a problem with the EVAP system vent valve solenoid circuit.
The solenoid may not be reacting to computer commands to open or close.
The solenoid and circuit would need to be tested.

P0449 and P0455 error code 2008 2wd gmc envoy 30,203 miles

P0449 - Evaporative Emission Control System Vent Valve/Solenoid Circuit Malfunction

P0455 - Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (no purge flow or large leak)

Both are refer at EVAP system; other EVAP DTCs: P0440 - P0441 - P0442 - P0443 - P0446 - P0453 - P0455 - P0456

This indicates a fuel vapor leak or lack of purge flow in the EVAP control system. It means a large leak has been detected. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.

Symptoms: You likely won't notice any drivability problems.
Causes: most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
A non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand)
Other leak or damaged piece in EVAP system

Possible Solutions: the most common repair is to:
Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
Otherwise, replace the gas cap, and/or
Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses (you may hear a vacuum noise or smell fuel), repair if necessary

Hope helps.

GMC Canyon, computer shot.. cost?

You can to the Salvage Yard for a new computer, but your going to have to get it reprogram to your ignition keys, so the Passlock will start the engine. Before you go through all of that. recheck every thing, it could be your crank sensor or your ICM faulty causing your engine to shut down. Keep me posted and let me know what DTC codes you have. Note: a faulty fuel pump or dirty fuel filter will not set a DTC code. You may have a dirty fuel filter or faulty fuel pump or faulty fuel pump wire harness or fuel pump relay.

Truck wont crank each time

It sounds to me like that you have several different issues with you vech and on the pass lock system will not cause all the problems listed how ever it will cause the no crank and after five min or 30 min start it is most likely the pass lock sensor unless your truck has a pk3 system (the key will have a + or pk3 stamped on it)If it is a pk3 system then it may be the theft detturent module if ton a pk3 system then most likely a pass lock sensor . Take the vech to some one that can ck for codes and find out all the codes set in the vech. This will tell a whole lot about what is going on with the vech .Im not very good on drivabilty problems. The evap leak and the mis fire will not be related to the pass lock problem.

2006 gmc canyon 3.5 inline 5 cyl.

Not much of a vacuum diagram on this vehicle. Uses vacuum mainly for the EVAP system ( not a good source). Best bet would be to use a source that stems directly from the intake manifold. Good luck
