If you mean the evaporator hose for the air conditioner .. then observe under the hood .. you will see two pipes coming from inside the car side by side .. one is large and one is small .. the evaporator is the thing inside your heater compartment that cools the air for air conditioning .. the hoses could be called the "evaporator hoses" . the large hose is the "low pressure" side and is where the refrigerant comes out of the evaporator .. the smaller hose is the high pressure side and thats where fluid under high pressure enters the evaporator

now there is also an evaporitive emission control system on your car .. thats where gas fumes that evaporate inside the gas tank are collected in a charcoal cannister temporarily .. when the car is running those fumes are drawn into the engine and burned along with the fuel ... there is a hose that comes from the gas tank to the cannister and you could call that an evaporation collection hose ..

Need to know what the evap hose looks like

A/C systems have two hoses, a smaller diameter one for high pressure and a larger diameter one for low pressure. High pressure freon is compressed in the compressor and and pumped under pressure in the smaller hose to the evaporator where the freon is expanded/evaporated and becomes cooler via the expansion process. Here the freon absorbs heat. The larger hose then carries the expanded/evaporated freon to the radiator where it is cooled, then on to the compressor.

Why is carpet damp or wet?

Sounds like the air conditioning evaporator/heater box has a blocked drain, when using a/c condensation will form on the evaporator, and should drain via hose externally...

The drain hose will run through the floor directly under where the a/c fan/evaporator box is located, you may have to remove some kick panels or part of dashboard to access the evaporator box to clean the drain hose....

How to fix leakage of AC on passenger side of Toyota Yaris 2008

It sounds like the evaporator drain tube is blocked or came off the duct inside, pull the carpet back and locate the rubber drain hose on the bottom of the evaporator housing, the hose should go through the firewall so water can drain out, the hose may have become disconnected before the firewall or it come off at the evap housing, pull the hose of the evaporator if water comes out make sure the hose goes out through the firewall and is not clogged.

The diagnostic is reading emissions evaporation leak. How do I fix? What do I look for?

first check gas cap for proper seal. If OK, trace evaporation hose starting at fuel tank and going to evaporation cannister. Check hose for cracks and loose fitting. Check cannister for cracks and also hose from cannister to intake manifold. If no hose leaks or cracks, suspect leaky purge valve.
Let us know if you get stuck or have more questions.

Engine coad po442 how do i fix it

PO442 is the data trouble code for (evaporative emission control system leak detected "small leak") it means that the OBD-II system has detected a small vacuum leak in the evaporative control system.

You will need to find the vacuum leak in the evaporative control system, check for cracked or broken vacuum lines and hoses, especially the vacuum hoses and lines around the evaporative (Evap) canister and the (Evap) solenoid. Also check the gas cap seal for damage.

Vacuum hoses and lines should be checked very well for any cracks or breaks, because they usually hide under the vacuum line or hose.

A/c drain pulgged, leaking inside of truck and into carpet

mcdevito75 here, Water drains from your A/C evaporator, as the hot air hits the cool evaporator thru a rubber hose connected to the evaporator and leading thru either the firewall or even under the vehivle. Locate tis hose thru the firewall, it won"t be attached to anything, do not un- attach any rubber hoses you see. If you do find this hose just comming thru the firewall, run a piece of coat hanger thru it to un-cog. If you can Locate this rubber hose at the bottom of the evaporator under the dash, real close to the glove box.
