Replacing the the F75Z-9F945-CA solenoid is not that difficult, granted the space is tight. First, disconnect the electrical connection. Second, remove the solenoid from the canister by pulling the solenoid toward the driver's side of the vehicle ( the solenoid is attached to the canister with an O ring connection). Once the solenoid is disconnected from the canister you should be able to pull it down from the crossmember to gain access to the vacuum line on the solenoid. Once the vacuum line has been disconnected, the solenoid should be free. Reverse the steps to install the new solenoid. I did this today and the procedure took about 20 minutes from start to finish.

P1451 code is showing an check engine light come on an off

This Code is for the Evaporator vent control circuit. First, try to tighten the fuel cap. If you take the car to Autozone, Oreillys, or Advance they will scan it for free. They can also clear the problem codes.

The Evaporator vent circuit is the wiring or Solenoid which makes the gas fumes flow into the canister box. Your Solenoid could be burned out or the connector could have corrosion. When you see the replacement part at an autoparts store, you will know what to look for. The solenoid is either near or on the canister box. Sometimes overfilling the gas tank can allow raw fuel to travel into this area by mistake. It is meant to control fumes and not solids.

In rare cases the vent lines may have holes in them and may contribute to this warning. A "smoke machine" would be necessary to find the holes and you would need to find a Repair shop with such a machine. Try the easy stuff first and it will likely solve your problem.

1999 expedition fuel tank sucked in as if no venting.i replaced gas cap,still sucked in.

It sounds like the evaporator canister is gone bad on the vehicle. It is usually mounted by the tank and has a vent tube coming from the tank to it and the canister doesn't seem to be working correctly.
