Well, we all of the sudden had an "Emissions Workshop" light come on. The mileage on the car got worse but otherwise it drives good. I decided to look under the hood and see if I could see anything dodgy and low and behold I found a broken vacuum line. Literally broken right off so I don't know where it terminates. It starts underneath right where the dipstick is and immediately does a sharp turn to the back of the car. It appeared to be heading towards the coolant temperature sensor.

I'm sorry if this is an easy question but I looked everywhere, with a shop light and a mirror to try to find where this goes back in. I am working on replacing all my Vac lines with silicone ones and I need to know where the rest are as well. The Vac Line diagaram under the hood is not much good to me as I still can't see where this line goes. arrgghh.

Any advice is very much appreciated. I don't want this car in the shop for a $1.50 worth of vacuum line. Pics Below

Cheers

Be careful when reattaching to the nipple inder the intake manifold. It's easily broken.
Now you tell me - about 4 years too late. I snapped mine off with the very slightest of pressure. It's been held in place with a glob of J B Weld since then. But what other alternatives did I have? Is there a R&R procedure where you don't have to remove the manifold?
