steve that really sounds like a purge valve issue, id check the one youve replaced already by removing the hose on the bottom of the purge valve(away from the intake side) and unplugging the valve connector. start the vehicle up and if vacuum is coming through the valve still its bad.if its not coming through the valve leave the car running and plug connector back in and recheck for vacuum getting through the valve. if all thats good as crazy as it sounds check for an intake gasket leak. but tht will not set a p0449. hopefully its just a bad purge valve
