My engine light is on and I did a troubleshoot and I got a trouble code - P0449 Evaporative Emission Control System Vent Valve/Solenoid Circuit Malfunction - But im not sure exactly how to correct it. My gas cap it also tight too, I was told it could have been that so im not sure please give me some good advise!

Take it to chevy, I think they need to cover emission stuff for 50,000 miles. In any case it's not the gas cap code. It's the solinoid on the charcoal canister.

If I dont have time to take it right, will it effect anything or cause more problems, and could this be the reason I have really bad gas milage?

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