Are you referring to the vapor lines ?, also known as the EVAP hoses.

These hoses lead to the evaporative emission canister.

The main purpose of the system is to prevent fuel vapors from dispersing into the atmosphere.

2004 Chevy trailblazer loss of drivetrain power

Okay, please describe the problem more fully (need engine type, miles, description of power loss, etc); in the meantime, here are some common power-robbers:

Bad O2 sensors. Just changed mine on my 03 5.3 LS-motor Sierra, and power went from mundane pickup truck with 145,000-mi to high thrust similar to my \'11 Camaro SS/RS. Yes, it makes that big a difference. About $25-50 each, and most modern V6 or V8 vehicles have 4.

Dirty throttle body. Easy enough to clean your self, but you will need the environmentally-NOT-friendly cleaner (about $6 or less per can at parts stores--get 2 cans). LET DRY COMPLETELY--1 HOUR MINIMUM--BEFORE STARTING. Same effect on power as O2 sensors. Usually about $100 or less for Chevy vehicles.

Dirty or bad Mass Air Flow sensor. Clean with same stuff as for throttle body. Similar effect on power. LET DRY COMPLETELY--1 HOUR MINIMUM--BEFORE STARTING. If bad, this won\'t help.

Dirty fuel injectors. Use high-quality injector cleaner (usually about $6 or less per bottle at parts stores), or bite the bullet and let the dealer do the professional injector service, usually <$150 at a Chevy dealer. Any dealer work on Chevrolet vehicles, it makes sense to have the Chevy dealer and not the Ford or Billy Bob\'s Tobaccy Chaw garage do it. Many, many of us mechanics are qualified and trained, but many, many are not.

Bad gas. This is a deal-killer, and it is even worse than you know, because bad gas--even one time--usually kills the in-tank fuel pump. Bad gas is gasoline that has somehow gotten water in it. By the way, NO DEALER EVER SELLS "WATERED-DOWN" GAS, no matter what you have heard all your life, even if your Daddy told you that. The reason is simple chemistry and economics: gas and water do not mix, water does not burn, and water causes immediate spitting, missing, bucking, farting, and twitching, kills fuel pumps and catalytic converters and fouls plugs and O2 sensors, and costs hundreds to repair. Water does accidentally end up in underground fuel tanks, however, and usually as the result of the fuel deliverer not sealing the caps after a delivery, followed by a rain or hose activity in the station lot. Water is not the only definition of \'bad gas\'--I recently repaired a vehicle that the fuel deliverer had accidentally poisoned with diesel fuel--he either forgot to clear his hose after filling the underground diesel tank, or just put diesel in the gas tank, but this car\'s tank was FULL of diesel after fueling from an island that doesn\'t even have a diesel pump on it--I checked the station myself. Contaminated fuel can cost you thousands of dollars, so always buy gas at a reputable, name-brand station, and smell the nozzle before you add fuel. You won\'t catch water this way, but you will catch diesel.

Stopped-up or internally-fractured catalytic converters. This one is REALLY expensive, and it DOES happen. Converters don\'t last forever, and they can be killed by you or by your fuel. Bad gas or even misfiring kills modern catalytic converters right now--like yesterday-fast--and there is no fix but replacement, usually costs about $300-2900 (that\'s right) to repair, depending on vehicle, catalytic converter type and quantity. Buying gas for even 10 cents a gallon cheaper really doesn\'t save you squat...the average tanks hold something less than 20 gallons. Even at 20 gallons, 10-cent cheaper gas saves you TWO WHOLE DOLLARS per $2 a tank off worth possibly $3000 in repairs due to bad gas?

Please ask for help performing any of these repairs if you feel like you can do them with a little coaching, and please be more specific in describing vehicle problems. You can even say "It makes this chick-chick-chicky sound," and a good mechanic can get insight from that. You don\'t have to be as technical as us.

2005 jeep liberty wont take gas

When you replaced the tank, did you check or replace the tank filler neck hose or the vent hose? That is where the issue is.

2002 ford explorer while filling the gas tank the pump trips every couple of tens of gallons

This is caused by a defective fuel vapor recovery system in the fill pipe, you need the dealer to repair this.

How many different sizes are there for the fuel line from the gas tank on an 85 dodge ramcharger

Hopefully the old lines are still in place & that will give
you something to look at & measure.

Steel tubing --I assume-- your running from front to back,
until you transition to rubber or braided hose?

I would say 3/8" steel fuel tubing

No one-- meaning people who never work on vehicles,
or parts store people who disrespect your age or knowledge?

The only issue will be at the gas tank & on the engine

If it has a carb,then it may be steel all the way or some rubber
hose,at the gas tank if your going there you may have special connectors & they are avail,but again the parts stores will play
stupid as they don't get too involved there

Let us know what your up to

We have no diagrams,sorry

You have to hone you fabricating skills

No dealer parts to just bolt on

Have a 2006 Lincoln Zephyr with 75000 miles, took it in to my Lincoln dealer for required svc, was called upon completion and told my 12 mo old (85 month rated) battery died, needs to be replaced. Car...

If that car was mine,I'd take it to Ford and pay their diagnostic fee.
Before you do that, unhook the battery cable for a half hour and then reconnect and let it idle for a few minutes. If it acts okay,drive it TOWARD the Ford dealer and check it out.
Your car is at the age that it needs Coil-over-plugs and spark plugs,along with a fuel filter. The coils-over plugs can cause BAD things to happen to the PCM(by electrical interference) which controls a LOT of functions. don-ohio (:^)

My corolla ran low on gas, after adding gas the car would not start.

some times(most i find) is because water got in the gas station tank. I would contact the station and ask them if they have had any complaints or question regarding their gas lately, ask them when they had their tanks filled, and if they don`t know i would press the matter till the manager tells you so you can figure out if that may be the issue. you will need to see a service dealer unless you are very handy and know autos.

How do I drain my gas tank on my 1998 S10 standard pickup

Their really is no easy way. You have to put a hose down the filler neck and remove it that way. If you can find a old fuel pump or some other kind of pump that has around a 3/8 hose diameter in and out this is the easiest way. Some times even an old waterbed type pump works good. They don't come with drain valves so this is really all you can do. Sorry

My service engine soon light was on. I took the vehicle to a mechanic and the code came back po422. A smoke check was performed and they said it had a leak in the filler neck and the entire gas tank needed...

If they forgot to tighten the hose clamps on the hose from the tank to the filler cap it could be setting it off. If they are all tight it was probably just the gas cap. The gas cap is usually ALWAYS the culprit. Let me know if this helps

Gas leak

It is called gas tank filler hose. You usually can purchase that rubber hose section seperately at an auto parts store or dealer. Make sure to change clamps also.

1993 olds cutlass ceira

Add a bottle of fuel system cleaner to your gas tank. Gumout is best in my opinion for an off the shelf product. Do this about every other tank of fuel for a while and see the difference.
