Vapor recovery line???

I found a steel line that runs along the frame on the drivers side in the back wheel area. It was rusted completely apart. It appears to go to the fuel tank. I think it is for the vapor recovery system.

First, is my assumption correct?

Second, where do I get a replacement? (buy line & bend myself?)

Third, What does this affect?

Thanks.

(I can post pictures if it helps)

Hi Sundowner,

I'll get some pictures after work.

PS- Still no problems with my idle. (you tried to help me with grounding issue on TPS codes not too long ago)

Yes, your assumption is correct. It is a vent line for the fuel tank.

You can get a new line from the dealer. The part # for the long line is 52127601 and it lists for $33.70.

It appears to be nothing more than a 3/16" hard line, but I have never confirmed this, so I cannot say for sure.

The purpose of this is to reduce the emission of fuel vapor in to the atmosphere. Usually you will get a check engine light for an evap leak if this hose is not properly connected.

Or, someone that knows more than me can just save us all the trouble.

P.S. Glad to hear that you got your idle problem fixed!

Took some pics, but can't upload because file is too big and the computer I am at doesn't have anything to resize pics. However, looking at the inside of the frame rail, there are three hard lines: bottom one is steel brake line, middle is pressurized fuel line (i think stainless), and top line is the one in question. It is steel and is routed over the top of the top spring perch on the left rear tire and goes to the fuel tank.
