Vacuum Lines - 2001 Duratec

I have a vacuum line loose. It originates from between the motor and the throttle body and ends with an elbow as if to connect to some thing. The line isn't very long but I can't seem to find where it would connect.

HELP !

also, it would seem to connect to something between the motor and firewall.

I have just uploaded some pics of my car and the problem... they are in my profile album.

Hopefully the moderator will clear them quickly so they are available to be seen.

I still need this matter fixed/solved. HELP !!

You can upload pictures to your post. Just hit manage attachments, choose file, upload, then close, then post the reply.

Sounds like it could be the pcv... but lets get a picture please before we go guessing.

I'm pointing to where the vacuum hose originates and comes out towards the firewall. I just can't find where this hose is suppose to go once it comes off of the intake/throttle body... The hose isn't much more than a foot long. Has an elbow on the end. I plugged the end to stop it from sucking air. Help me out here...

here's a general pic of my engine compartment....

everything that is of a concern is up near the firewall on the drivers side.

That looks like the vacuum line that should be going to the purge valve. The purge valve should be on the lower part of the firewall on the passenger side of the vehicle (it doesn't go anywhere near where it is now).

I would have to imagine you would have codes for that, so make sure the CEL is working when you turn the key to ON. You might take it in to have the codes read.

^+1. I was thinking evap. emissions. Hose may connect to a vac. pipe between the eng. and firewall or possibly run clear over to the pass. firewall. My gen3 tecs have a completely different set-up.
