Unhappy Where does this vac line go?

Long story short, my friend stole my car and broke it this morning. He claimed that the it broke down while he was driving it and he couldn't shift it suddenly. He also said there was steam coming from the hood. I also found this vac line sitting on top my engine when I popped the hood. I have no idea where it goes, so I'm hoping some has seen it before or could help me identify it. I have combed over my engine bay for 30 mins trying to find a spot for it. I may be an idiot and this isn't a vac line either. It's hard plastic and the inside looks free of liquid. Thanks for the help.

Has to be stock. The car only had one other owner and no modifications have ever been done to it.

I dunno, I'm with Coop here. As far as I'm aware, any vac lines on the car are made out of rubber or hard metal. I don't know of anything under the hood that would be a hard plastic tube that looks like that. Especially not that clean either.

Just a thought, and not making any assumptions here, but is it possible that it was planted by your good friend to throw you off? I mean he did steal the car, right?

Well my car sounds awful and part of it sounds like what id imagine a major boost leak would sound like but I'm not sure. It's possible he planted it, but he doesn't have a vehicle, I don't know where he could have gotten it besides my car.

I doubt a popped vacuum line would make your car sound like shit. May not idle right. What does it sounds like? Post a video?

It doesn't go to the windshield squirter does it? That's the only thing I can think of that could end up on top of the engine, and it's fairly common to replace them so it might not be stock. Other than that, I agree with the others. It's something your "friend" left behind. I believe >PA 12< is a type of nylon, and I don't know of any nylon hoses in our cars. Also, it looks like some kind of fitting on the end. What is that?
