Vent Valve Replacement (emissions)

Recommended Posts

I have a vent Valve that needs replaced. (P0449 Evaporative Emission Control System Vent Valve/Solenoid Circuit Malfunction). The garage fixing it said it cost $400 for the part & $700 total with labor and comp charges. Is this correct? They said it has to do with Emissions and if I do not fix it, fumes can build up in my cab?!?! Please help me! (2003 GMC Sierra Denali 6.0L)

Here is an Update! What ever this part is, the garage removed it. It appears to be a Black Box 4"x3" and 3/4" thick. It has a port for a hose to attach to. It connect close to the gas tank or near by. It does regulate emmission But i assume I can do with out since I am running the vehicle with out. I need to replace to get my engine light off. I will not Pay $700 quoted from my garage to replace! Can anyone Suggest what this part is AND cheap place to buy this part???? Thx!
