    Evap Line repair

    So as some of you know, the other day I broke one of the evap lines that comes off the gas tank which runs up to the filler neck when reinstalling my tank. Unfortunately this piece is not replaceable UNLESS you get a whole new tank. Well at $700 from the dealer I was not going to buy a new one. So today I decided to tackle it.

    I was going to follow this install video below but decided to try something different.

    What you will need:
    1/8 x 1/8" hose barb
    Jb weld
    Patience


    So this is what it looked liked when it was broken

    As you can see the nipple sheered off the plastic

    So I ran out to the store this morning in search of parts like in the video. I came to find out the the inner diameter of the nipple was very close to 1/8 in size. So I bought a 1/8 barbed nipple.

    I then mixed up some jb weld

    And applied some to the end of the barb. (Sorry no pics as I didn't think about it)

    I installed the new barbed end into the broken piece in my hand. Then applied some more jb weld onto the other end making sure not to plug the hole.

    I then installed it

    There was a lot left over that it smushed out and I was able to apply some around the outside to help seal it a little more.

    At this point DO NOT reattach the line to the filler neck! You must let the jb weld cure. I would suggest that you don't drive your vehicle either for a period of time. Once dry after 12 hours or so you can apply more weld to the outside if you choose and reconnect the line.

    And that's it For about $10 and some time!! I hope this helps for if this happens to someone else in the near future

    Glad you got it fixed. Can't believe that you have to buy an entire new tank. That's Bull Sh!t.

    Anyway, is there anything you can do to protect it, keep it from happening again?

    Good job with the repair.

    Good job. Hope it lasts. A lot cheaper than a tank.

    Had the same thing happen to me. Since mine is a 2010, I would have had to get a new tank. Epoxy is holding up so far no problems after about a year.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
