I had mine done in a Camry V6 and it was $435, being about half each parts and labour. You are best getting a new solenoid as this would only cost you about $80 more and it would be warranted.

The job is best done on a hoist as the transmission bottom pan has to come off.

SOURCE: second hand truck, no owners manual - gas tank size?

I'm assuming you want to know the tank size to avoid running out of gas. You don't need to know capacity to do this. When you run out of fuel, generally there is from one to two gallons remaining in the tank. You can't use that because when spread over the tank, the level is not high enough for the pickup to reach it (made this way so any water and junk in the tank is less of an issue) Therefore is you had for example a 14 gal tank, you would run out of usable fuel after using 12 gallons.
What to do: assume that you have a twelve gallon tank (disregard the true capacity). Fill the tank and figure out what your mpg is by keeping track of miles driven, then re-fill the tank. (divide miles driven by amount of fuel needed to re-fill...100miles divided by 10 gallons= should be getting way better than that though) So, lets say you are getting 18mpg...then you can go 180 miles on the same 10 gallons. The numbers will never be perfect as mpg varies with where and how you drive and even weather conditions.. .therefore the extra fuel you are ignoring will allow for mistakes. Also, about every fourth time you fill up, abandon your numbers and start process over again otherwise bit by bit you will use up the "reserve". Some people just carry around a gallon of fuel with them...That is a bit dangerous, and, running out of fuel with an electric pump can damage it from overheating (pump needs fuel around it to keep it cool)
The best thing you can do is to fix the gauge problem but this method will help you stay out of trouble 'till you do!!!.

Not unless you are having problems now .you have a owners manual ,look in there and see when the manufacturer says that these fluids need to be changed ,You can look at the air filter and see if it needs to be changed .The transmission fluid should be good to go until around 60,000 miles or so .you need to check the level of the fluid on the dip stick ,just to make sure it is no leaking .

2009 Hyundai Sonata code p0449 comes on .

There never has been a repair cost up front-- until you
find a problem

You pay for diagnostic time-- then authorize the cost
of the repairs later

PO449--- Evap Vent Valve Solenoid

Find the valve & replace yourself

There are 8 Emission Monitors that have to run clear-- BEFORE--
you go to inspection, or you know you will fail

If the Evap System is good & only that monitor did not run, they
check your gas cap. In your case, you have a failed part or wiring
issue-- any repair shop can do

I would replace the solenoid yourself

The Evap Monitor is the only monitor to only run every
few days & no one but the engineers that design the vehicle,
knows when,some run at 2:00 am when your sleeping

So drive a few days or have a look with professional scan
tool under I/M on the data-- before going back to inspection
