what is this part

Hi all,

1993 Taurus GL V6 3.0L.
I have found a loose hose which is connected to one side of T junction with some sort of unit (maybe valve?) attached to it and the other side of the T goes up near the manifold.
anyone knows where the loose end should be connected?
(see pics)
Thanks !!!

That is the canister purge solenoid. It's connected to the vapor canister for the fuel tank emissions.

Re: what is this part

If yours is a flex fuel vehicle, it goes to the vapor management valve. Otherwise, there should be a port on the intake manifold or vacuum manifold. I don't have one to get a picture of.
I saw your post and replied to it.

The other end goes to the passenger side fender. It then goes through the fender between the fender and wheel house tub. It is a hard solid plastic black line. 5/16 inch
diameter. Look for it by the rad over flow - washer tank.

Re: what is this part

after some quiet observation, i think i found the missing nipple for it. took some pics and here they are.
could this loose hose be the reason why i have fuel odor in the engine compartment after any drive ?

That will definetly give a fuel odor because it's the line to pull the vapors from the canister.
