Service Engine Soon light came on while driving and went off about 90 miles later. Nissan dealership said it needs an Evaporative Vent Control Valve and at cost of $468.00. Is this price correct and if so are there other companies that can replace it for a lower price? How long can I continue to drive it and what are the possible problems that can result from it?
