Hi im Reggie thanks for using JustAnswer. Put my years of experience and training to work for you

Hello the code you have indicates a problem with your vent solenoid for the fuel tank. Do you have a scan tool to use for diagnostics

The most common part to fail is the vent solenoid itself although i have had several pcm to be at fault. You can begin by checking to make sure you have voltage at the solenoid with the key on.
