2001 F250 Part Identification Help

Under the hood to the righ of the air filter housing (if you are looking at the front of the truck) there is a black cylinder a little smaller in diameter than a coffee can and about 18" long. It has a rubber hose coming out of it that attaches to a metal hose. I looked in my Haynes manual and the part isn't identified. What is it and what does it do?

Thanks, Steve

Can you tell me what/where the metal hose attaches to? Mine is rusted off. As far as I know it has no affect on the operation of the vehicle and I have no idea how long it has been rusted off.

Thanks, Steve

I don't know what that is, but it ain't it.

Doesn't look familiar. Hopefully I'll have time to take a photo tomorrow.

Thanks

Yes, that is it! Thanks! Could the hose coming off of it have anything to do with cruise control not working?

Thanks, Steve

its the charcoal canister so a big pipe connected to the fuel tank and at least one hose to the intake through some kinda valve.....if any hoses are broken it will cause a emission readiness trouble code and maybe a fuel smell....it should not effect the cruise as that uses an electric servo....it could cause weird idle issues though?

Be aware that in the US/Canada, the drivers side is the left side.

If this 'cylinder' resembles a coffee can, it's a vacuum reservoir, probably for the A/C

These are usually installed on the left (drivers side) inner fender apron.

It is the EVAP Canister. This canister is connected to the fuel tank by the tank vent line. My tank vent line is the thing that is rusted through. Hopefully that is available for purchase somewhere!

Thanks, Steve
