the 3mm line with the check valve that comes off the back of the valve cover has lost its home on my car.

anyone know where it connects?

i have a feeling i have a lot to disconnect to get it reconnected...(somehwere under all the pcv hoses)

You mean the one all the way on the passenger side on the firewall side of the valve cover that's part of the PCV system? That will depend on the engine. On my T-5 car, there's the Y shaped plastic fitting coming out of the valve cover, and the branched part of the Y goes to the hard line and the straight part of the Y goes to the PCV check valve which I think goes to the throttle body (but that's from memory, not looking at the car).

Also on T7 cars, they go to the throttle body. The lower vac port under the two for the coolant lines.

You'll maybe at the absolute most spill out like a tablespoon's worth of coolant.

Helps having smaller hands too.

Go for it.

open the coolant tank to release the pressure. i bypassed the throttle body coolant passage and didn't release the pressure. more than just a dribble of coolant came out at me when i discomfcted the hose

Every time I've done a throttle body(quite a few), the car has been cold and next to no coolant came out.
