Default Dealer Invoice Question

I have a 97 Nissan Maxima. My MIL came on and I went in to a local Nissan dealer for a check-up,

Looked up the error codes, but what parts do I need to get exactly (full, proper names)? I am almost positive $475 is a rip-off.

Thanks

The parts are listed there but that estimate is high.

This is what I have gathered:
-VENT VALVE
-CANISTER
-WATER SEPARATOR

Those last two names are not very descriptive.. I am looking for the full/formal name of the parts.

That's pretty much it. Iguess you could say Evap Vent Valve, Evap Canister, and water seperator. There arn't any similar parts ob your car that could be mistaken for it.

Rockauto has the canister for about $50, not sure what 'vent valve' they have, but probably vapor canister purge valve. That'll be about $65. And the water separator i don't know.
