The P1451 is a fairly straight forward code pointing to a problem with the EVAP Canister Vent Solenoid. On this vehicle, the Solenoid is part of the EVAP Canister itself, so if faulty, the Canister Assembly will need to be replaced. Give an inspection to the electrical connector and rubber lines to the canister looking for anything loose, broken, damaged. If the visual inspection checks ok, the Canister (with new solenoid) sells for around $148 and the Labor Time Guide calls for just under an hour to complete the job. Labor rates vary from shop to shop, so what you pay for labor will effect the bot***** *****ne. For a job of this type, a "fair" labor rate can be anywhere from $85-$125 per hour.
