986 loose hose right side, near battery


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I found this little hose unattached from the other end in the gasket near battery, on the passenger's side. What is it and where should it be connected?

Car is 1997 986, US-model.

Thanks!

CEL is on with code P0447 which stands for:

P0447 EVAP Canister Shutoff Valve (Output Stage) - Open Circuit

I am also getting similar whirling sound that lasts for 1 second and comes in frequency of 5 seconds, seems to be coming from the evap. canister. Related? Shutoff valve malfunctioning? Is there a part-number for shutoff valve or is it with the canister?

That is the vent line for the battery - it should be connected to the battery vent.

Ifg your battery does not have a vent then I highly suggest you get one that does. Acid fumes and vapors will do damage when left unvented inside your front trunk.
