Thats either a vacuum hose/line or a evap hose. Look near the throttle body and intake to see if it comes from there

Jeep Mechanic: Amedee, Jeep Technician replied 2 years ago

If so, it is a vacuum hose. If not, then I would suspect a evap line. Where does this line come from?

Amedee, I'm also uploading a video to hopefully give some more details as to where to connect the loose hose. If you're on a computer the link to the video is here: https://www.dropbox.com/sc/r3ndyt2nsedr5qd/AAAsCj1eg_7zTdYULCuSTvOUa

Hello and sorry for the delay! Thank you for the video! A vacuum schematic for emission related items can be found on the VECI label

thanks for continuing to dig, please let me know when u get a chance the location of the open valve
Jeep Mechanic: Amedee, Jeep Technician replied 2 years ago

TO be honest, it was hard to pinpoint the location with the video you sent. Could you resend a video "not so far zoomed in"? I would like to see all of the components on the firewall. The more detailed the better.
