Default 2000 accord check engine light P1457

i have a problem with my 2000 Honda accord DX 4cy.
My check engine light when on right before i went to get my sticker done on it.
The check engine light code comes back with P1457.
I hook it up to diagnose machine and it came back with this
" Evap emission system leak system leak detected (control canister system)
Probable cause
1.Loose fuel cap.
2.Vapor canister saturated
3.Failed vent solenoid
4.Failed purge solenoid"

Today i already change the fuel cap. and did the reset on the ecu. and the light when off. Hopefully it will stay off.
But if the check engine light comes back on,

Where can i find the canister and the solenoid on the engine? anyone have pictures?
How can i test them?
What would the the symptom's be if they were bad?
Are the parts expensive?
What would be your next part to check/repair?
Is there anything else i should check??

thanks to all for the help

To my understanding, there are some screws that are a pain to remove that are involved in the job. Save yourself the headache and bring it to a mechanic.

I also had a question about my 2000 honda accord ex sedan. The car came with 205/65R15 tires and I am looking at a nice set of 205/50R16. Will the 50R16's fit my car?

Canister and vent valve go bad alot located under car near the back If you want to do it yourself go to a honda stor and get a canister vent valve and the 2 small bolts that hold the together. Once your are under the car you can find all you need is a 12MM socket 3/8 dr. a ext. and ratchet one bolt holds it in one hose needs to have you hold in the 2 clips to remove
