    What is this part with the unused vacuum line? This is on 96 Chevy 1500 5.7l. It's on the passenger side of the motor.

    I think I figured it out. It's a vacuum canister purge valve.

    Holy shit, people are posting over here...

    I was going to say, that looks like an evap purge valve for the emission system. Sorry for the delay.

    We are wondering if this engine is supposed to have a clamp of sorts to secure the air intake to the throttle body. There is a gasket but it is a little loose. He is having an issue with mis firing. He has new plugs but not wires. Not sure if it's the wires.

    There is usually a clamp on the intake. And missing could be cap/rotor, ICM, coil, wires or a combo of any of those.

    He has a new cap. Not sure about rotor. So far as I know, the wires are the only thing old. We looked inside the intake of the throttle body and it's pretty gummed up in there. My neighbor told him to run some sea foam and see if it clears up.

    That is sound advice. I have an article on here on how to sea-foam if you guys need it.
