I replaced the heater hoses in my dads 03 Taurus w/vulcan engine v6. While putting the drivers side lower wiper cowl back in place I noticed a loose vacuum line that runs up the fire wall and looks like it goes towards the MAF sensor but I can't see any open connectors there.

Any idea where it might go, or can somebody post a vacuum hose diagram?

The other end goes to the Evap canistor/VMV valve if that helps?

The engine will start but dies after a second if this is any help?

Can someone please go run out and take a look in their car? Maybe a picture if I'm lucky?

Look for the broken spot, you can see there is a nipple broke off in that hose.

Yup you were right. Figured that out right after my last post. It went to the upper intake manifold right next to the vent solenoid if anybody was wondering.

Now heres the question...

Was that tube molded to the upper intake manifold, ie...was the tube and manifold one piece or can it replaced separately? I've JB welded it in there for now but would like a permanent fix.

If you have the black plastic manifold, it was probably molded to it.
