Default how hard is it to replace the vent shut valve which is attach to the vapor canister on a 2003

honda civic? I have a 2003 honda civic and my check engine light was on and I had it check with a smoke test and my vent shut valve which is attached to the vapor canister is bad. Is it to hard to replace by myself and how much does it cost. How do you replace it.

Did they make sure to shut the valve before trying to smoke it? If it is truly bad, the canister vent shut valve is located in the EVAP canister located between the 2 rear tires. It is not hard to change but if you are going to replace the shut valve, recommend replacing the canister as well since the screws holding the 2 together usually rust and wont come apart. I think you can get both parts for under $200.
