MISSING PART AND LEAKING FUEL
1999 Saturn SL2 • 180 miles
I have a 1999 Saturn s-series sedan with 1.9L DOHC. There is a part missing and I can't find the name of it for the life of me. It's part of the fuel rail and liquid fuel does pass through it. It's not part of the throttle body tho. The car will run and drive, but it will dump a lot of fuel out of the port where the moving part is. Please, help.

The first picture, I am pointing at the pressure release valve/ fuel inlet. The second, I'm pointing at the hole where missing part would be. The third is some sort of wiring that is now dangling. It might have a vacuum line, but the hose says flammable on it.
I only see one pic in this post and your pointing to the place where you check the fuel pressure with a gauge.
Sorry. I don't have a computer and I'm trying to post pics using my phone.
Is there any way you can show me a picture of the intake brace and the canister purge solenoid? Or what that area on your car looks like? Maybe that can help me figure out what I'm looking for.
So the part you have in your hand is leaking fuel?Thats your canister purge solenoid it shouldnt have any gas in it. That supplys vaccuum to the gas tank for the charcoal canister
I will get you pic of the brace tomorrow after I get home from church. Also try to get you a pic of the canister purge solenoid mounted under the intake manifold.
In the second picture it some sort of hole where something plugs in. I'm not air if that's where fuel is coming from. If that vacuum was missing, would it leak fuel somewhere?
Sorry about the double reply. Thanks for helping me. I have two small kids and we definately need our transportation back.
Where the connector plugs in is where two hoses go the nipple with the barbed clip is where the hose goes that comes from charcoal canister. The other smooth nipple has a vaccuum line that comes from the throttle body. There should never be any fuel going to the canister purge solenoid. Did you just buy the car?
