2003 Suzuki: hose..I think it came loose while R/R the egr valve.

Resolved Question:

2003 Suzuki XL7. Small hose that seems to run down to the transmission is not connected on the other end. I think it came loose while R/R the EGR valve. There doesn't seem to be any other hoses running down to the transmission, so that should narrow it down a bit.

Is this a single rubber hose running up from the transmission?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

Yes, single rubber hose. It's graphicgraphic not very long, I have attached some bad images.

This hose should just be the vent hose for the transmission. It does not connect to anything, the vent hose must remain open on the end. It just routes up into the engine compartment to prevent water from entering the vent.

The end seems so clean, in comparison to the other things under the hood. That was one of my concerns, in that I had been rooting around in there when I took out the EGR valve. I had seen a reference in a Suzuki forum post about a hose that connects between the throttle body and the transmission, but it was for a different year/model. Any chance of it being something else. I just don't see any open places...

There are no other hoses running to the transmission, this is not like the older models that had vacuum modulators on the transmission.
