The thing that I'm holding in my hand has one hose and the clip on the side is an electric clip. It looks like it attached to something else. The part that I'm pointing in the second picture is a hole that has something that just plugs in. Could that be the vacuum that connects to the engine?

What you hold in your hand slides into a bracket then mounts to the engine blot with a 10mm bolt. It should have two hoses going to it a vaccuum line from the throttle body and hose from the charcoal canister. Its called the canister purge solenoid. So whats leaking fuel?The thing your holding in your hand?

I don't know. I've checked all the fuel lines and gas tank. I faintly smell gas. My husband was the one who said fuel was leaking. I'm not sure what he was talking about when he posted that.

Lets get with ypur husband about what he saw so we can figure this out. Also you can get some gasoline leak dye added it to the gas tank. Then get a dye light to trace the leak back to its source.

Your talking to the right person iam factory trained saturn tech I have worked for saturn for over 16yrs. There is only one fuel line that goes to the fuel rail. In the second pic whats in your hand is the canister purge solenoid. If there is fuel leaking from it or going to it that is not supposed to be happening. That is just used to turn vaccuum flow on and off to your charcoal canister. Completly sure about this in fact. So is there fuel leaking from what you now know is called the canister purge solenoid?
