Default Help me connect this hose!

I was replacing my thermostat and when I was putting it all back together I found a hose that I don’t know what it connects to. It looks like it comes out of the crankcase underneath the battery on the driver’s side. It’s flexible, about 16” long, and has “1/4 34611-B” printed on it. The unconnected end had a white plastic tip with a split tip connector on it. Got any idea where it goes? I believe it’s the hose I circled in the attachment, a used Vue transmission for sale on e-bay. 2006 Saturn Vue Base, 3.5 V6, automatic

Sounds like you're describing the transmission vent hose. If it is, it doesn't connect to anything, it just clips to the side of the fuse box.

I think youíre right. I may just try to bend it so no water or debris can get in. Thanks

If you can, post a picture of the hose just to be sure. Just be sure you secure it in an upright position as intended.

Here are some pictures. I think this is the bracket on the fuse box it supposed to attach to. Itís the hose with the rust dust on it.

If the hose end is capped to prevent dirt from entering and has some sort of vent hole, can this hose fit easily onto the plastic clamp on the fuse box? Show a snapshot showing the full length of this hose pressed onto the clamp. Either this fits perfectly or not. As a rule, most automatic transaxle configurations with the xmission and engine for front wheel drive usually have this vent hose. The fwd xmissions are very compact with xmission oil sloshing around so much to create some foaming. The vent port on fwd xmissions are located in strategic spots where foaming won't enter the vent port and push oil out the long tube. By having a vent for the xmission, oil can expand and contract as it cools and heats up during everyday driving. The vent port and long hose allows what little air in the xmission to 'breathe' without blowing oil out the vent. Think snorkeling for swimmers - swim with face looking down as the snorkel tube is above the water surface to allow normal breathing. The vent hose on fwd xmissions uses a similar snorkel tube but isn't called a snorkel. It still serves the same purpose - venting without sucking in dirt or expelling xmission oil. A xmission oil breathing tube.
