I Need Help please help me !

My car has 118374 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The inline fuel filter has 3 lines all combined in the area. The supply hose is connected to the fuel filter. The return hose is connected to the top of the fuel tank. The vapor return hose is connected to the charcoal canister. some models have the return hose and the vapor return hose switched in their locations. Just follow the hose that is damaged and see what it leads to and it will tell you whether it is a return hose or a vapor return hose. If you need further assistance with your fuel system, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
