Default Fuel pressure regulator

Hey guys, the old man is back with another dumb question and a broken part. Underneath the intake is a small black gizmo with a vacuum line and a fuel line connected to it. I am supposing that this is the fuel pressure regulator?? Jammed my fat hand in there to get to something else and snapped the fitting off that the fuel line connects to. Awfully fragile thing to be trusting with my fuel. Plastic....whatever happened to cast iron??

Year and model of your Saturn. Is it under the intake or the intake manifold? Did you really break a fuel line or a vacuum line? The fuel lines in the engine compartment are rubber and if you somehow broke one of them, you'd have fuel spraying everywhere if you try to start the car. At the very least, fuel would of poured out when it broke. Did fuel come out of it?

If s-series then it most likely is the carbon cannister purge solenoid. Does it have an electrical connector on it as well? If so then it is the purge sol. It will be evap system and vacuum lines to it not fuel lines.

(BTW, who here would trust vacuum, let alone fuel, to iron?)

Well I did think it a bit odd, but the larger line has a yellow tag on it that says "Fuel line, do not kink" and it's paired with the pressure line for the fuel rail. It does have a wire connector, and the other line goes straight to the throttle body, so evap solenoid makes sense. I'll take a shot at repairing the fitting then. Just didn't want to do a makeshift repair on something that was carrying fuel. No matter what it is, it's awfully fragile to have a 3/8 hose hanging off of it. Guess it lasted till I stuck my fat hand in there though didn't it?? I refer you to my user name....(smile) Thanks again guys, and this site has been a great help as well as a cultural education.
