FORD ESCORT GAS PROBLEM

1999 Ford Escort • 175,000 miles

Dropped the gas tank on my 99' escort. Above the tank is a small black canister that the gaslines go in to. Figure it has to be a filter of some kind. Can't find it in online parts list. Anybody know exactly what it is?

It is an evap part. The lines are vacuum lines from the front to the tank.
