Can someone PLEASE tell me what this part is called and where I can find a replacement? I've looked everywhere and my local auto parts stores have no answers for me. This is the piece that connects to the solenoid on one end and has a vertical connection for the vacuum line leading to my gas tank. I'm getting a "check gas cap" warning and it's pulling so much air it sounds like my engine is knocking. Thank you for any info!

I'm also looking for the replacement vacuum line if anyone can point me in the right direction. I tore mine up digging out the broken piece that was stuck in there.

I know what part you are talking about I changed my purge valve solenoid about a week ago. That part you broke goes onto the
purge valve solenoid and they are hard to get off without breaking. I dont know if you can get that piece at a parts store or not might
have to get it from GM. If not I know you can get one from a junk yard....Problem is if its a good engine they wont sell parts off it....

Thanks everybody. I ended up going to the local salvage yard where they took me out and let me pull the part with the vacuum line.

The problem now is attaching the new line. The connections are press fitted together making it almost impossible to disassemble. Anybody know the best way to just cut the two lines in the middle and splice them together?
I was thinking shrink tubing or a rubber hose section with hose clamps.

If these lines are hard plastic, then yes shrink tubing will work fine. So will rubber hose if you can find one of the correct ID.

Come to find out this line is considered a fuel line because it pulls gasoline vapors. The local auto parts store had several options for repairing a nylon fuel line. I opted for the quick connect. You just push both ends in and your done. Took me a total of $10 and 5 minutes!
