Can anyone please identify this part for me??

Alright... so heres the deal.. I was taking off my throttle body to clean it out, and in the process, I broke this small plastic hose with my ratchet... Stupid I know.. You can see where it connects right below the throttle body and runs all the way to whatever that thing is on the right in the last picture. Any ways, if anyone could help me with figuring out what the hose is, it would be great! Thanks in advance!

Sweet. Thank you so much. How important is it? Will I be able to continue to drive my Jeep till I can get a replacement? Or should I just park it until I replace it?

If you have a piece of rubber hose small enough, you can splice it back together. If not, you should plug the side at the manifold until you can make a proper repair. A vacuum leak can cause driveabliity issues that you may not want. Even folding a piece of duct tape over the ends would work to stop the leak temporarily. Edit: DONT FORGET TO PLUG YOUR BRAKE BOOSTER VACUUM LINE BACK IN!

Okay. That doesn't sound too bad. I might could go pick up a piece of hose at O'Reilly's tomorrow or somewhere else that would possibly have it. Thanks again for the help. I really appreciate it.

you can absically get a straw and some bubble gum to fix that although i would suggest a small section of hose that the brocken hose will fit inside of. (does that make sense???) you can always use a little break clean or wd-40 to help it slid on eaiser.

Yeah that makes sense. I figured Id run over to an auto shop tomorrow and see if they had any kind of hose that I could hack up and make fit over it. Hopefully they do, or I might just either plug it up till I can find one, or just use that straw trick.

ajorosa, if you look closely, you will see a small vacuum hose that is broken. He wasn't talking about the brake booster vacuum.
