need help vacuum line

I have hopefully attached a picture but if not this is a 95 3.8 and on the driver side I have a vacuum block with 4 lines coming off it. The third one down is broken and I am not sure where it goes. It is a plastic tube that goes into a rubber fitting on the vacuum block but the other end is broken and I am not sure where it goes. I have a picture that I am going to try and attach but haven't done that before.. thanks..

When you turn on the AC, does it only blow air from the top defroster area. If thats the case then that vacuum hose line is coming from the passenger side firewall, near two coolant hoses.

Thanks, you are correct. Do you know if this will affect the other vacuum systems running off this distribution block since it is basically an open hole in the block?? thanks..

Yeah its a vacuum leak. Either find a way to plug it up or reconnect the hose line to it.

thanks for the help one last question

I have located both ends of this and it is broken off in both ends. The plastic line will no longer reach. Has anyone replaced this with a standard vacuum line?

They sell those little vacuum lines at autozone, just also needs couplers on each end. But whatever makes a good seal to transfer vacuum within should work. So if the standard lines are a good fit, then yeah.
