Vent solenoid and canister leak


#1

I have a 1999 Chevy Prizm with 103,000 miles and this morning the check engine light came on. I took it to a dealer mechanic and he said the vent solenoid and canister is leaking and was quoted $600 for parts and labor to have this repaired. Is this a fair price and is this repair necessary?

Would you please post the codes that were pulled. It would be very helpfull. I just want to make sure that the code that was pulled has anything to do with your EVAP system.

If it does then I would go to a parts store and see what the vent solenoid and canister cost and if you are any kind of DIY you should be able to replace these parts yourself.
