Vacuum line ID?? Line dragging on the ground..

So my wife pulls up in my 89 YJ (2.5L) and it looks as though she is dragging something on the ground under the engine compartment. Upon closer inspection it appears to be some type of vacuum tube that is thick (around 1/2"). It is coming from a small canister that protrudes from the top of the valve cover, and is now dragging on the ground below the front axle. I tried looking at Vacuum diagrams, but they are very rudimentary and make the assumption that you know what you are looking at in the first place!

I appreciate your help!

are you sure its vacuum and not an axle vent. Most of them came from near the grille area if I remember. Pics may help as well

nah, this comes from the rear of the valve cover, goes into a rigid line, and then back to a flexible one. from there it runs down the drivers side of the engine and onto the ground

My 2.5 has been gone for some time now but if memory serves me right, check to see if it's the line that goes to the air filter box.

It might, but Im not sure where....trying to post pics... Definately isnt a vacuum line - Im not sure what I was thinking with that....if it comes off of the valve cover it must be a vent of some sort
