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.

No. It's not from there. That solenoid is working and complete. It's just missing the bracket. All the pictures I put up there are it. I can't drive the car or else fuel will start leaking. Unless you can figure it out thru those picture, then I have no idea what to do. I simply can't afford to take the car to a garage.

So is the fuel leaking behind where the fuel line goes onto the fuel rail?Behind the throttle body area?If so only thing that can be leaking in that area is a injector or the fuel rail itself.

It's part of the fuel rail. Just after the first injectors from the driver's side, there is the electrical connector for the fuel rail. Just under that connector there an "L" shaped hose that comes out just under the throttle bottle whatever connects into that accessory hose is what is missing. One person said it might be some sort of test port for the fuel rail. It has never had any electrical connection to it, it was just some sort of plug there before. There is a bracket there where it used to just snap into place. Now I'm at a loss as to what to do next. Should I just replace the fuel rail or what?

There are four holes on the fuel rail the injectors to slid in and a nipple for the fuel line go on. Those are the only places for things to connect to the fuel rail. So I really dont know of anything else that attaches to the fuel rail. Wish I could see what your talking about. The fuel rail is easy to pop off a few bolts the injector connectors and the fuel line. Pop it off and take a pic of what your talking about.

I have taken a few pictures. The first is the file of the fuel rail the way it would fit into the engine.

This is what it looks like from above.

This is where I am stumped. The port on the left is where the fuel line goes. The one on the right is where the part is missing from.

I hope this will help figure out what is missing.
