Not the evap solenoid, the purge solenoid is what you need to change. It is mounted driver's side of the top of the engine. Looks like this.

One 10mm head bolt 2 vacuum hoses and one connector and voilà! You're done. 2 minute job 3 tops.

I'm sure I can turn it into an hour job. With breaks and whatnot.
upsell the customer :)

Be like "well ma'am/sir, upon installing this evap purge solenoid, im also gonna need to flush out your fuel system in order for it to get fresh fuel delivered"

Haha :)
