Surely the vented type is the regular battery?
To the best of my knowledge both the wet type battery and the gel type battery are both vented and interchangeable, though the gel battery is often considered a sealed type they do generally contain an array of valves to allow the escape of gas..

Both offer advantages over each other with the wet type battery being the traditional fitment for motor vehicles. Gel type batteries have a history of variable reliability with the main advantage being the danger of spilled acid is removed they can be fitted in positions a wet battery would be unsuitable for.

If in doubt refer to the battery manufacturer's application catalogue.

Where is the eval vent solenoid valve and how do you replace it on a 2010 canaries V6. I am getting error code p0449.

On the 2010 Chevy Camaro V6, that vent solenoid is on top of the rear cross member. You might be able to squeeze a VERY small hand in there, but the regular service procedure is to drop the cross member down. Sucks, as I just had to replace the same valve.

I have a 2005 Kia Sedona with a Code P2422 reading. How can I fix this problem?

P2422 Evaporative Emission System Vent Valve Stuck Closed, replace the valve If you have a Hyundai (including Kia), Nissan (including Infinity) or Toyota (including Lexus or Scion) you should disconnect the electrical connector and then apply and remove 12V power to the vent solenoid/valve. The difference between 12V applied and not applied should be the difference between not being able to blow through it and being able to. After testing at least 5 times, if it fails even once, replace the solenoid/valve.

before you go through all that ,, check the gas cap though, with Kia and Hondas,, that code often shows up instead of the P0446 code, which can be solved by re tightening or replacing the gas cap

Noise coming from engine, i used regular gas instead of premium

If premium is recommended then noise from the engine is very likely "knock." This can permanently damage the motor if it hasn't already.

You should siphon out the regular fuel and FILL it with premium of the highest octane you have available to you. Then top it off with a product called Chemtool B12 by Berryman.

Why does my 2003 cts need a vented battery? wht not just a regular battery

Most batteries are vented, there are some Gel batteries and sealed batteries on the market that are not vented. Does your existing battery actually have a vent hose on it, that direct the acid vapors down away from the battery? If so, you should get an exact replacement, if not just put a regular battery in the car the top rectangle shaped caps are the vents.
