Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
I think have narrowed my problem down to the evap vent solenoid by reading forums. I'm not sure though. All I know is that every time I fill up, the pump doesn't stop and fuel starts pouring out of the canister onto the ground. What I need to know is where to get the parts at. Websites would be helpful.

DTC P0446 Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Vent System Performance
The vehicle control module (VCM) monitors the performance of the evaporative emission (EVAP) system by applying a predetermined level of vacuum to the EVAP system and monitors the vacuum decay rate. The VCM sets this diagnostic trouble code (DTC) if the vacuum decay rate is more than a predetermined value. The VCM monitors the amount of vacuum and the amount of pressure in the EVAP system by monitoring the fuel tank pressure sensor. For this DTC, the VCM turns ON both the EVAP purge valve and the EVAP vent valve when the Conditions for Running the DTC are met. This applies an engine vacuum to a closed EVAP system. The VCM turns OFF both the EVAP purge valve and the EVAP vent valve when the system reaches a correct amount of vacuum. The EVAP system should quickly RELEASE the vacuum in the EVAP system with the EVAP purge valve OFF and the EVAP vent valve OFF (open). This test indicates a blocked or restricted EVAP vent path if the EVAP system fails to release the vacuum quickly enough.

you should be able to fix it look for a can near the fuel tank that has vacuum hoses coming out of it and you should be able to just buy the bad solenoid

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.

SOURCE: Evap vent solenoid
If you don't replace, it the service engine light will stay on. You'll get used to the light (or you'll cover it up). Then when something else goes wrong, you wont know.

Tips for a great answer:
An EVAP canister, vent hose, or vent solenoid valve that has restricted flow may cause this DTC to set. Using a purge solenoid command with a scan tool will allow vacuum to be applied to the system instead of pressure. With the engine running, the EVAP canister vent solenoid valve open, and the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve commanded to 100 percent, the fuel tank vacuum should not increase to more than 5 inches H2O.
An EVAP canister filter that is restricted can cause this DTC to set. Refer to Evaporative Emission Canister Replacement .
Disconnecting one component at a time while the EVAP system is under flow will help to pinpoint a restriction in the system
Do you have a scan tool that reads data PID'S ?
Your FTP - fuel tank pressure sensor could be at fault !

5.Connect the new EVAP vent solenoid harness (3), P/N 22687059, to the EVAP vent solenoid (2), route the harness above the rear ABS harness (4) and connect the EVAP vent solenoid harness (3) to connector C313 (1).
6.Lower the vehicle.
7.Clear the DTC's with the Tech 2 scan tool.
If all of the wires are good you will want to check for any leaks in the evap system.
