2010 V6 OBD Question

My check engine light came on at 42,000 mi. (2010 V6) Advance Auto said their diagnostic tool only goes up to 2008. I told them to say it was a 2008 Cadillac CTS 3.6 V6 because the Chevy dealer had once told me it was the same engine. Would that be OK to go with, or what would have been a better choice? Anyway, the code came up as p0449 Vent valve evap emissions, solenoid malfunction. Would this be covered under the 100,000 mi. warranty? Thanks. Bob

Nope,
the only emission components covered beyond 3/36 is the PCM, ABS module, fuel control module, and catalytic converters. That's it. Cam actuators for the L99 have 7/70 warranty, for California-equipped emission systems.

However, another member just reported his dealer replaced the EVAP cannister (he also had p0449) out of warranty for free.

Good luck.

Thank you for the reply! Since posting this question, I had stumbled upon the thread you mentioned. It's pretty insane that they would place a $50.00 part under $500.00 worth of labor and it go bad at 43,000 mi. I'll also be raising hell with GM if they won't at least help me out with the repair bill. On most vehicles, this is easy to get at. Bob

Not sure if this is the case but this problem occurs sometime if the tank is overfilled with fuel. Fuel is forced ito this cansister causing problems.

When the fuel fill nozzel shuts off thats enough. don't try to get to that next dollar

Great news! It was the evap canister and Chevy replaced it for free, even though my car is 7000 miles beyond the warranty. Didn't even have to argue with them! Would have been a $449.09 job. I guess there still is some integrity among auto dealerships sometimes. Bob
