What is this?

I believe this has something to do with emissions, it is cracked. One side is 1/8 the other is 1/4. Anyone know the proper name, it belongs to my 1998 2.5 ltr Wrangler. The 1/4 side attaches to the intake manifold. The 1/8 side attaches to something that looks like a crushed can near the top of the engine. Thanks!

It is a vacuum hose. It is necessary. You can use a piece of rubber hose to fix it, just cut out the cracked area and use the rubber hose to connect the two sides or just get a new one from jeep.

I know a lot of things, most of them are only correct in my own head...
Better to be judged by twelve then carried by six. I'm sure this is going to get me in trouble down the line
