Seems it is a problem with the vent control valve, aka VCV. They supposedly have new parts for this which include a filter. I don't know if an extended warranty would have covered this, but I seem to have this type of luck without fail.
Any idea how much the repairs run?
It ended up being around $500. I can replace/fix a lot of things, but I just don't have the room to jack mine up to remove the gas tank & do all of the fun underbody stuff. Oh well, it's fixed. This is from the work order:
CKL: CHECK ENGINE LIGHT
CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON NO DRIVEABILITY CONCERNS
Installed 14935-JF00A :VALVE ASSY - CO
Installed 14953-ZP80C :FILTER-CANISTER
FOUND CODE P0448 VENT CONTROL VALVE.FOUND VALVE FULL OF DIRT.REPLACED VALVE AND INSTALLED FILTER KIT.CLEARED CODE.LIGHT IS OFF
Full of dirt? I hope this doesn't happen every single time I drive through mud. To top it all off, as I was exiting the PF after getting home, I noticed a bunch of scratches running pretty much the entire length of the vehicle. I won't stop driving off road, so if it gets any worse I'll just have them apply that black bedliner stuff along the bottom 1/4 or so from front to rear.
