    It more than likely goes to the hvac system to work the doors.

    Okay I found what you are dealing with.

    That check valve goes in 3 different directions. One I believe is the back of the intake manifold. The other goes straight back and through the firewall (to work the hvac). The one you are holding runs up front to just under the passenger side horn. It connects to a little black box that is almost directly under the battery. You can see it just under the horn. What that does I have no clue but it's probably important

    That's a check valve near the PCM and the black box is a vacuum reserve for when you're at wot an there's no vacuum in the intake. It all serves the HVAC system doors
    I like work. It fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.
