What is this line from rear engine area?

Post by dlwharleyman » Tue Jun 12, 2018 7:57 pm

Working on a 2000 Taurus 3.0 V6 for an elderly couple on limited income. Had a misfire code. I removed the upper intake to get to the rear spark plugs and to check and clean the injectors. Lucky, I have a work pit in my garage. So I was under the car working on the back side of the engine, when I saw this metal tube to the rear passanger side of the engine. Don't know what it's for or where it goes.

Solved. It is the vent tube between the steering boots.A guy on another site identified it for me.
