You need the one that matches the one you have now.How do you know its bad?Just a code doesn't mean that is the problem setting the code. Here is the location of the valve in the diagrams below and a video to show you how to replace it.

I wouldnt wait too long, you may smell fumes if the vent is stuck open.

Yes you can. It is located close to fuel tank. When purchase a new one you will know what to look for. There is a quick connect hose you will have to disconnect and one electrical connector. The hose goes to the EVAP canister which is also mounted close to the fuel tank. I work at a chevy dealership. Let me know if you have any questions.

Check with your local GM dealer. There is an updated parts kit. The valve gets replaced and the filter gets located above the transmission. They should have a copy of a service bulletin for this.
