Replacing Vent Valve Solenoid & Purge Valve Solenoid (EVAP Valve) 2005 GMC Yukon
When you get a check engine light, your parts store can test it with a little electronic device - ask for the check engine light tester. They go by many names, but look for EVAP Valve or Vent Valve/solenoid & Purge Valve/solenoid. The one in the rear of the car, near the gas tank, is known as the "Vent Valve Solenoid Canister." The one in the engine compartment is called a " Purge Valve Solenoid." Replacing the one in the engine compartment did the trick. I'd start by replacing that one first then test it. Cost: $25.97 Vent Valve Canister (fuel tank one) $35.72 Purge Valve (engine compartment one) TOTAL: $61.69 GM Dealer quote: $281.00 I saved $219.31
