Evap vent control valve replacement

Anyone replaced one yet? Dealer wants big bucks but I seem to be able to find the part for $90. Where on the truck is it and how hard to do? Anyone have any tech info on how to?

Re: Evap vent control valve replacement

You know Smoke, they just R&R'd the TC on that truck.
I wonder if something got unplugged or not plueed back in?
Even if that isn't it, I can't imagine that it is too terribly difficult to change.

Front final drive got R&R'd walleeme. Doesn't look difficult to replace but I don't know where the darn thing is located.

This TSB will give you a little more infos. such as part numbers and what all is needed. Once you fix the EVAP valve you need to install a filter.

Re: Evap vent control valve replacement

I just changed this part on my 04', the stealership priced it at 505$ for parts and labor 229 of it for parts. I bought the the new valve on courtesy parts .com about 90 bucks , with no filter. I figure the filter cost just as much as the new valve and i heard that it dosen't always make them last longer. I changed this part in 15-20 minutes with no tools, I don't where the dealership got the 3 hours of labor from though. It's located under the truck on the drivers side, back by the gas tank, it sticks out of a black plastic box. give it a 1/8 to 1/4 turn and pull it out firmly. disconnect the connector and the hose and replace with the new piece. It wasn't very hard. I got 74K miles out of my original, and if the new one goes that long I'll be happy.

I had the same problem with my truck only my dealership was a lot better...... only $495! I couldn't believe it was that cheap! Anyways I took my truck back, ordered it myself and put it in within 10 minutes while rocking out to some kicka$$ tunes. Just wanted to say thanks because I followed your directions and things went perfect.

Re: Evap vent control valve replacement

I have the same problem with mine. It's a 2005 with 65k miles on it. Took it to the dealer and they're looking for $800 (parts and labor). I had a long chat with the service manager and referenced this thread as well as several others and told him his price was extremely high. We broke it down by parts and labor and basically they'd be replacing everything associated with the error codes that were given (forgot all of them) but it'd be the vent control valve, filter, vent control canister, pressure switch and I think a few other items to ensure that the problem is fixed and will not return.

Now I'm confused which route to take, especially bc I am not mechanically inclined, but I wouldn't mind paying a little extra for piece of mind and so I wont have to take the truck in again later on down the road. What do you think??

$800??? Your getting hosed. Replace it yourself. It takes less than 5 minutes. I've done it twice already. You have 2 options.

1.) Pick one up from Rock auto for about $40. It's a direct replacement for the one you have.

2.) Pick a new one up from Nissan for $90. They redesigned it so you don't have to install the filter kit. The filter kit solution was only temporary.

Re: Evap vent control valve replacement

I agree, sounds like they're trying to rip you off. I only replaced the vent control valve and haven't had another issue for the past 20k miles so it seems like replacing the other parts would be a waste of time and money. You don't have to be mechanically inclined to change the valve either, it's extremely easy. Follow the link and you'll be good to go.

Re: Evap vent control valve replacement

I have a 2004 Titan LE 4x4. Does anyone know what part # the new Nissan redesign is? Or if someone has a direct link as to where I can get this part that would be awesome.

Re: Evap vent control valve replacement

if I am thinking of the right part I got mine from Rockauto.com I used the $40 one DORMAN Part # 911503 which was for my 08 and have had no issues.

Silver 2008.5 XE King Cab 4x4

Re: Evap vent control valve replacement

I also used the Doorman part from Rock Auto. Part has a lifetime warranty. One issue is trying to top off the tank too much. I let it stop automatically then one more fill and that's it. If you keep trying to top it off it will throw code.
