A while back I had a P0449 error code on my 2011 Eco with 70K miles- and I've replaced the solenoid at the charcoal canister and the one off the side of the head- both old ones tested good and I'm running to a "What's next" issue. I'm wondering if I need to take this into the dealer for a smoke test.

Anyone have any experience with this one? I can clear the code and next time I restart the car it comes back.

Clarification I did the evap vent solenoid & purge valve, all parts are AC Delco I think from amazon if I recall.

I also replace the gas cap with a Chevrolet new one too.

I had time today to go back over what I did when I installed the rear evap vent solenoid and evap canister and found the plug was loose on the solenoid on the side of the canister. I have to drop the tank down several inches to see it and it looks like the plug wasn't seated completely when I replaced it. So I guess you can say I worked through the P0449 issue- we'll see in the next week or so if the code in the computer clears.

I know this was long ago but how hard is it to drop the tank on the Cruze
