    Car stopped on my wife, started spraying coolant everywhere at the thermostat housing, and I have zero idea where this line goes.. searched everywhere for it, it was found on the driver's side front between the engine and brake fluid area at the bottom, connected to nothing. Any help would be appreciated, the line on the plastic top says Danco Pat no.3-021--029. but when I search it , it brings up axel breathers for other makes of vehicle.

    I am almost positive that is the differential vent tube. Would not have anything to do with coolant loss, unless a coolant hose/line blew nearby and smacked it up into the place you found it.
    I can verify tomorrow in daylight on my donor vehicle. I tried checking just now but couldn't get a visual.

    I am so sorry. I forgot all about checking this due to having to pack to travel out of town for a work training class. I get back Thursday night.
    I am still very confident it's the differential breather tube.
