Check Engine Light on; P0449 code?
I have a 2006 chevy silverado 4.3 L check engine lite was on, went to auto zone they said evap sensor was bad code was P0449 so i bought a new one looked all over for the sensor thought it was near the gas tank, I believe I found it on the intake manifold behind air intake hose, replaced it and reset the code, in 5 miles and it came back on, whats up did i repalce the wrong sensor?

Welcome to the club. I had a similar problem and it was the Evap vent solenoid. It is located off of your fuel tank hose. You can get just the solenoid coil if you ask for just that at the dealership and you will save allot of money. Good luck and welcome.

After I replaced the solendoid, the CEL stayed on for several days, but finally went off. It still gave me the code on my reader, but the light is off, and that's all I cared about.Kevin Singleton '09 Z71 - PA ZRT - kevindsingleton.com
