That hose goes to you evaporation canister. If your state does not do emission testing then you can just cap it off. If your state does do the emission testing then it will need to be replaced.

Hose to 4x4 actuator on left wheel is hanging loose under master cylinder i dont see where it connects

the acuator uses eletric to work not a hose. the only hose is a front diff vent. it is supposes to just end there. it is there so water doesnt get into the diff. if you follow it down and it goes into top of diff thats what the hose is. usually there is a cap on the hose but they do tend to fall off.

It has a switch that changes it from 2 hi to 4hi & 4lo. The problem is that it doesnt shift into 4 wheel drive.

Even though the electrical switches are working, the vacuum lines may be the source of the trouble. Inspect all vacuum hoses. Look for loose connections, broken t fittings, weathered or mushy hoses, There is a vacuum operated switch under the vehicle that engages the front axle. Locate this switch and make sure the vacuum line is still connected at both ends. This hose is bad about coming loose.

I have a 93 Saab and my vents aren't blowing heat. When I hit a bump in the road it may kick my heat on full blast for a couple of minutes, but as soon as I hit another bump, the heat kicks off. Also, the...

You don't say whether the fan starts and shuts off with the bumps, or the heat goes cold but the fan stays on. If it's the fan shutting off and coming back, you most likely have an intermittent connection to the blower motor somewhere at the fuse box, the fan speed control switch or the fan motor, or a loose ground connection at the fan motor. The fan motor is visible under the right side speaker grille on the dash. Make sure you re-connect the short black corrugated hose to the grill vent or you won't have defrosting on that side!

The air distribution rotary switch controls where the air goes. The fan speed switch controls exactly that: fan speed. the temp rotary switch controls the coolant temp into the heater core. You need to clarify what you mean by "Also, the dash controls for the vents won't allow me to turn up the power"

You might also have one or more of the following issues:
  1. is you vacuum tank properly connected and are there no leaks in the vacuum piping? The tank is in the driver side rear wheel well below the trunk deck on a convertible, and in the passenger side front fender area on the other cars. It's a white bottle with one or two hoses connected to it. If not properly on, your vacuum operated heater flaps won't move. Does the air distribution knob make sucking or hissing noises when you set it to different positions? If not, check the tank connections, look for vacuum line leaks, then suspect the vacuum valve behind the distribution knob.
  2. if the air distribution rotary switch makes noises when you change its setting, but nothing happens, then suspect the vacuum solenoids that open and close the heater flaps - could be a loose vacuum line or a defective vacuum solenoid
  3. the shaft connecting the temp control knob to the heater valve behind it may not be properly in place. This can be inspected, and adjusted if necessary, from the left side speaker/vent cutout on top of the dash. Make sure you re-connect the black flex hose to the air vent tube, or you'll get no defrosting afterwards!
  4. remember, the centre vents always blow cold air; a brilliant idea from Saab so the driver (and passenger) can get fresh air in the face and stay awake while the rest of the driver, passenger and car is toasty!

Water leak left side of engine.

well, from what you told me, more then likely it's the thermostat housing gasket is shot, or the hose connected to the housing is loose.

We have change tthe spark plugs and fuel filter but the car won't stay running it sputters and dies. what else should we be checking for?

You should check your idle control its at the rear of the engine on the drivers side. It has two bolts and one electrical connection. It can be cleaned by spraying carburetor cleaner into it and rinsing it out.Typically you should replace it but it can be around 100 dollars for the part.
