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.

if you look underneath the vehicle on drivers side in the area beneath drivers you with see a plastic rectangular sort of shaped box this is evap canister and vent valve is there in this area.

These codes are for the evaporative emission system.The 455 is the vent solenoid.The 455 is a large leak in the evap.system.The vent solenoid I would replace because they go bad and will not work because they are under the vehicle in the rear of the truck.There is a bulletin for these and the vent valve is installed in another spot.The number for the bulletin is 02-06-04-037E.You should also look for a broken or loose hose or pipe that might have came off.Specially if you ran over something.If none found it could just be the vent solenoid stuck in the venting position.Good luck.
