Hi,

Contrary to what I thought was the vacuum hose on my previous post (labelled as red) that turned out to be a water hose and is connected. This hose is further back under the throttle body (about 2 inches further back) and is much slimmer, but is definitely an air vacuum hose, again in the 6 o'clock position like the water hose at the front. For the life of me I cannot see where this connects.

Somebody must know where this hose connects and I would appreciate some feedback.

Thanks.

Yeah that's the one - the pipes hanging off of it, not torn, I just did the gasket on my inlet manifold, and replaced all the manifold bolts as some were worn, then noticed this pipe. I'm not even sure if it was attached before i did the manifold because it's been idling like a dog for ages, when i push the bottom end of this pipe onto a screw it idles fine. Wish I knew where it went, ive had the alternator off thinking it was something behind there somewhere, but i'll be damned if i can find a pipe socket anywhere, thanks for the response!

I've had the car since 2006, no mods/changes were done to the engine before I owned it or since. I have done many things to it over the years, cylinder head, suspension, respray 2 years back...looks mint. Am unsure how long the rough idle has been, may date back to when i did the cylinder head in 2016, but I haven't used the car that much it's been mostly garaged since then.
