    I'm getting ready to change the evap emission ctrl sys vent valve/solenoid out on my 06. My come up with a PO449 code witch told me that is the part I need to change out. Went to a parts store and order one for 35.00. Be in some time today. If you have to change the filter out try a parts store for one. I've seen the for around 150.00 at parts store.

If you could please send me your full name, address, phone number, the VIN for the vehicle, current mileage, and dealer name via private message, I will be able to take further steps. Thank you again and I look forward to hearing from you.

    I think the charcoal cannister falls under a part of the emissions warranty & goes beyond the limits of your vehicles mechanical warranty. Look in your owners manual in the section "emissions warranty" & see how long those items are covered. The dealer might just not want to mess with it & may have neglected to tell you for that reason.

    **if it's not covered, then do as the other poster said above & buy the $30 dollar one & put it on yourself. When you see the new one, you will see that it's really simple.

    WTF? Really? That is like calling a 900 number and asking for pictures.
