Thanks for the reply mine is plugged also of the the pic you sent me … the one in my photo is down a little further it's kind of lower then the catalytic converter and next to the motor mount so it's lower on the engine block/trans case it's a different hose then the one you sent me and lower down In the engine compartment

How do you know it isn't simply a vent for either the PTU or the transmission? Both are commonly and frequently confused with vacuum lines....

You have to find the other end and see what it connects to...

Your provided image is so small as to be unusable to detect what it is.

If it is the PTU, it isn't a vacuum like just a vent, so it isn't a source of a vacuum leak, but it should he re-attached to the vent line to help prevent water getting in there.

This image is from an eBay auction, that black tube goes across the front and to a banjo like bolt and fitting, is that what you are looking at?


I think that the tube is bent in this image, but might be different depending on what engine:
