I haven't looked in the FSM yet, but I have no idea what this is. It's got one vacuum tube out of the gas tank and two others. Anyway, anybody know what this is while I look it up. One of the connection tubes is broke. I have a 98 XJ. It's a black box under the metal plate that holds it in.

Found it in the Emissions System section. That's the EVAP Canister.


DESCRIPTION
A maintenance free, EVAP canister is used on all
vehicles. The EVAP canister is located under the left
side of vehicle near the front of the rear axle.

OPERATION
The EVAP canister is filled with granules of an
activated carbon mixture. Fuel vapors entering the
EVAP canister are absorbed by the charcoal granules.
Fuel tank pressure vents into the EVAP canister.
Fuel vapors are temporarily held in the canister until
they can be drawn into the intake manifold. The duty
cycle EVAP canister purge solenoid allows the EVAP
canister to be purged at predetermined times and at
certain engine operating conditions.
