2001 Kia Sportage-Missing single hose connection-hlp plz

Customer Question

Changed the starter on my 2001 Kia Sportage. Have rebuilt the manifold and have everything in place, except for a single length of tubing. It seems to be a fuel return line or just a vacuum tube. It runs from the back of the engine straight underneath the manifold and is wrapped. I cannot find where it should connect. Any help is appreciated!

Welcome sorry for the delay,

Being that it would be near impossible for me to tell what it is without seeing it, here is a vacuum diagram for this vehicle. Check it closely.
