Working on a 2000 3.0 V6 for an elderly couple on a limited income. I removed the upper intake plenum to access the back plugs and to check and clean the fuel injectors. I was in my pit at the back of the engine, when I noticed this metal line that is about 24" long and 3/8 diameter. Can't seem to find where it goes and what it's for. Any ideas?

Solved. It is the vent pipe between the two steering arm boots. A guy on one of the Taurus forums identified it for me.

I noticed my focus has those too when I replaced my tie rods. What does that actually do?

Its only purpose is to allow the air in the bellows to flow from side to side when turning. As you turn the bellows collapse like an accordion and the air has to go somewhere and since those are dust boost they hold air.
