I have an 01 TJ and noticed today there are 3 ports coming out 2 of which have lines connected and 1 nothing. My buddies has a cap on 1 but it is a different 1 than the uncapped of mine. Does anyone know if it should have hose running somewhere or capped. Trying to post a pic but if I can't get it it is the rear one closet to firewall.

Are you referring to the hose bib fittings on the intake manifold? Some of the 4.0 jeeps have the front port blocked. My 2001 (50 state compliant) has the front port connected to the EVAP system.

The front port connects to the Fuel Vapor Leak Detection Pump. The middle one connects to the Vapor Canister Purge Valve, the rear one connects to the Duty Cycle Purge Solenoid.


The front port draws a vacuum on the fuel system to detect leaks in the lines, tank, fuel cap, etc. This occurs at startup.

Never realized the label was on the hood till I read about it in another thread. I'm assuming mine doesn't go anywhere but should it be capped?

2001 might be different or the HVAC line might be on a different port. In that case if everything is working & no evap codes put a cap on it & see happens. Some ports do come capped.

OK. Sorry for miss information.


The rear port definitely is the main supply for vacuum. The tubing splits. In one direction, it connects to the vacuum box under the battery which "powers" the AC vents. In the other direction, it supplies vacuum to the Cruise Control.
