Default Missing hose, can anyone identify?

Hi Everyone,

I'm in the process of swapping the engine in my wife's 06 Tribeca and I noticed a small T coming off of a line but I can't find any hoses that connect to it.

Can anyone identify or snap a pic of it in their car?

Thanks!!

Brake booster related e.g. vacuum? Have you figured it out yet?

It's a vacuum line for sure. I keep disconnecting it every time I try to turn the rear coolant heater screw. Have big hands.

And the engine swap was a huge success.

Did you put in another 3.0, or did you change it to a 3.6?

Would a 3.6 go into a 2006/07 Tribeca?

I bought a JDM EZ30 3.0 with ~47k. I don't know if a 36 would fit.

Hey you are welcome! Glad it went well. The JDM guy who did my engine was very adamant that I change the oil at 1k miles on my JDM engine. I followed that advice at around 800 miles.

I also used TCW-3 for cleaning purposes to take advantage of the short oil change interval.

If not familiar with it, you can read about it here. I don't use it at every fillup but every once in a while.

TC-W3 2-Stroke Oil As Fuel Additive

Money saver, especially if you have multiple vehicles.

I went with one ounce per 4 gallons.
