I believe Jeeps made after 2003 have remote transmission vent hoses that are supposed to help keep water out of the tranny but you're taking a chance by fording water that is deep enough to wash over the top of the transmission. Not to mention how if a wave of water made it over the top of the engine's air intake that you're asking for a hydrolocked engine that can quickly literally destroy an engine.

is there a way to tell, ive had mine in water before but not over the top of the light ring.. i think ive come close to getting it almost to the top of my tire (which is 2.5 lift with 31's) so now im worried that i should not take my jeep thru water.. and a snorkel now would be a waste of money..

is this correct? should i stay out of the water?

what about when your doing creek crossings, i know a breather comes in handy but what happens if your over the hood... will that keep water out

(not that i will ever go in water that deep) but feel its a good question

i did read that if you go thru deep water that your supposed to change out your diff fluid, is this hose the reason why, how easy will that hose take in water?

Jerry Bransford Um, the little white button is connected to the breather hose, yep, but I see a split hose on the radiator overflow connection that goes to the coolant reservoir.

I see nothing wrong with the axle breather hose since you only see the top of it... but that radiator coolant overflow hose definitely needs replacing.

coolbreeze Thanks for asking before I did

Spaceman Thanks to everyone. I love forums. You can get any question answered quickly. I'll replace it at the first opportunity.

are you talking about this one? if so it is a breather hose for the differential

Wind_Rocker It's the front axle vent, just don't do any deep water fording.

ccain It's a vent hose for the front diff. If you leave it with a hole you stand a chance of getting dirt, mud and crap into your diff.

Please help identify this hose

Anyone know what this hose is for? It is the one connected to the little white "button".

One of my cotter pins rubbed a hole into it. It seems to be a vacuum hose of some sorts.

Can I leave it as is?
