Question about 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
The two codes may refer to the same fault/ THe p0107 says that the Manifold absolute pressure is wrong in other words the amount of air gaining entry to your inlet manifold is incorrect. The P0449 says that the vent valve on the vapour emission control system is open. I think it is more than likely that the open vent valve is allowing air to be sucked into the inlet manifold and this is also being noted by the MAP sensor. If it easy replace the vent valve. A quick fix just to keep you going until the vent valve can be replaced is to locate the vacuum line supply from the vapour emission control charcoal canister and to clamp it closed. This will remove the MAP sensor error and allow the engine to run as it should. THis is only temporary as the vent valve fault will persist until it is fixed.
