Hi,


Here is an easy fix to your problem. You will need one single common screwdriver! Get under the vehicle after putting on the parking brake. The EVAP solenoid is easy to spot near the gas tank and it has one electric connector which disconnects by releasing the plastic clip and pulling the connector out. It also has one air line connected which goes to the charcoal canister which also can be removed with the one screwdriver. The whole EVAP solenoid and air can be removed with the screwdriver which makes it easier to unplug the electric and air line. Get a replacement from the dealer as they certainly are familiar with this part as they sell lots of them. Then just go under and plug the new one in and the problem is solved. Now if you do not have a tool to reset the codes, try the local parts places as most of them will do a reset for you.
Let us know if you want something else please accept the solution.
Thank You for contacting fixya.com

Is there a sensor on the top of the tank on a 2004 Colorado or just the one on the char-co canister and the one under the alt ? thanks


There is a pressure sensor on top of the tank , The sensor at the evap canister is not a sensor , it is a evap vent solenoid . The thing under the alternator is the purge soleniod . You would need to remove the fuel tank to replace the fuel pressure sensor . How to troubleshoot an EVAP Pressure Sensor problem P0452 GM

Google the location & a picture & replace yourself

Has to be near the fuel tank

PO449 is the Evap Vent Solenoid

PO 300 is random cylinder misfires maybe from the

Getting an error code of PO449 for a check engine light. this says it is the Evaporative Emissions Control System Vent Valve/Solenoid Circuit Malfunction. I keep looking for a replacement part of the vent...


You are right. You need the vent valve not the purge valve. The vent valve is a dealer item. Also this is a common problem and GM has released a bulletin on this that involves moving the location of the valve and running some new lines. It comes as a kit from GM, and it costs about a 100 bucks.
