I bought an AU V8 Fairmont, and ive found a hose that comes off the charcoal canister and just stops in the engine bay not connected to anything

Could some please point out where its supposed to go. There is pressure coming from the end of it

Ive taken a pic of it where it stops in the bay, and a pic where it comes off the canister

ok so must be a vent for the canister after the fumes from the fuel tank are filtered out or something?

also the purge solenoid is ticking like crazy, im aware this is supposed to be normal, but im telling you it aint........ the car sounds like its on its last legs, and yes ive made sure the solenoid is not touching the splash guard. Ive ordered a new one from ford for $160 inc hoses, even though he reckons they are not a common problem and he cant remember ever selling one of them?? :?

I wrapped the old one up with 2 jumbo car wash sponges and the tick was even worse. How can anyone drive around with this noise, its gyrating through the whole bloody car !!!

This is my first windsor and im hating the f**k thing already. Theres gonna be alot more "how to's" from me in the near future cause this car needs alot of things done and everything is so alien to me compared to the trusty I6', like power steering pump etc :cry:

probably not ideal but disconnect the solinoid, i would say atleast 50% are not connected due to the noise...

ah, the good old Tickford tick! If you had posted it before ordering, my AU is getting parted out this weekend and AFAIK it was silent

im guessing pressure build up in the tank and possibly cause damage?....... or even blow a hose and vent constant pertol fumes in the garage?

I do remember my last AU 6 cylinder was very hard to fill up at the servo, you could only trickle the fuel in or the bowser would cut off

I wonder if that had a disconnected solenoid, because other than that the car ran fine, no fumes etc..........

well new solenoid was $167.95 and came with all the hoses attached which i thought was silly until i found out that hoses dont come apart. Was easy to install anyway

the new one can still be heard ticking when standing next to the guard but cannot be heard inside the car thank f**k....... hopefully it doesnt get as bad as the old one i pulled out.
