That is an EVAP code. its a vent control code. you can manually test it by powering it up if you know where its at. i cant remember exaclty where its at off the top of my head but its only 2 wires. using a volt meter you want to make sure power is getting to it, but you cannot activate it without dealer scan tool.hmmm if you can figure out which is ground and power when you give it 12 volts it should click. meaning your vent solenoid works and you have wiring problems or its leaking.
EVAP problems are hard to finde with out scanners. you can change the vent solenoid and hope it fixes it. but a code points you to the direction of a problem. hopefull its not wiring problems. in the northern states with snow. ice can pull out wires and also get clogged in the vent solenoid and lock it up. its either wiring or bad or a leaking solenoid. check condition of wires. if they look good try a vent soleniod.
if that doesnt fix it after a engine light reset and 2 weeks or so. then goto dealer. you need to reset it after repair. light will not go off on its own.GOOD LUCK

The evap purge solenoid is located on the intake manifold. The evap vent valve is located on the side of the fuel tank. If you have a P0449 or P0452 (I think) DTC, it will be the one on the tank that you need to replace.

in my experience the usual culprit is the evap cannister. the problem is it gets moisture in it and freezes during winter thus cracking the plastic. if you lay under the car and look at the evap box it black plastic and if you see a loose or cracked hose or the box itself is cracked that is most likely it. as a side note you can check the gas cap and buy a new one to see if that rectifies the situation. lastly i don't think the gas tank should be suspect as you would probably notice if gas was leaking out of the tank. if you take the car to a dealer or shop they can do a smoke test and determine where the leak is.

You are right. You need the vent valve not the purge valve. The vent valve is a dealer item. Also this is a common problem and GM has released a bulletin on this that involves moving the location of the valve and running some new lines. It comes as a kit from GM, and it costs about a 100 bucks.
