    Re: Vent valve

    Did they suggest what the possible fix would be for the issue? My guess is they will want to replace the valve and possibly all the valves with an updated valve set that changed over the years to a more durable valve design.

    Re: Vent valve

    You have to remove the spare tire, I replaced mine as well get the purge valve as well. There was a poor design and GM replaced it also you need the wire harness adapter. The vent goes there the gas pump is velcroed. If your getting a p0496 code you need the whole thing it cost around 200 for parts.

    Disregard my comment, I thought you were referring to the engine valves located inside the engine.
