    EVAP service port disconnected

    I have the same problem with my EVAP service port. It has broken off at the bottom of the hose/tube and I can't find where it came from. I have the 4.0L in my 2001 explorer and although no dash lights have come on I can't stand not being able to find where it goes. On swetrids suggestion I removed the battery tray and still could not located the broken end. I don't know how long it has been like this but any suggestions/pictures would be greatly appreciated.

    What I am thinking is the TEST PORT line taps into the lower (WHITE) connector of the Vapor Management Valve.

    Probably won't help much:

    Thanks drdoom! I had the whole system off but never inspected the connectors that closely. Will check it out tomorrow.
    P.S. The pictures helped out a ton.
