JA: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your Mazda Tribute. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

Unable to provide that. The vehicle is broke down 400 miles away. IM trying to get the part number to purchase the part so we can go fix the car.
Expert:  david craig replied 3 months ago.

is it a larger hose that goes to the brake booster from the intake?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
The hose was different sizes on each end, one end of it was turned and was approx. 3/4 in. The other end was smaller.
I do not know which hose it is. Im relying on someone like you to determine that.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I could identify if the picture was from the rear side of the motor with the hoses. These pictures you presented dont even look like the motor
