Hose Hanging on Back of F-150

I have a 1994 Ford F-150 and while cleaning it I saw a hose hanging from the left frame rail. It connected the axle in the top side or should I say it did connect to the axle. The thing is I can fix it it's just that I do not know what to call it or find out what the part is so I can fix it?

It's just a differential vent tube. If the nipple is still there, (they sometimes rust off) just replace it with a length of hose and a clamp.

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.

I recently found a hose hanging down from my rear axle on drivers side. it's attatched to the axle but can't see where the other half goes. please help?

It is probably just a "breather" hose. It allows for air to escape as the differential gets hot during normal use. It just needs to be UP so water and debris does not get in it. There is probably a clip above the axle where it is supposed to be held. If you cannot find the clip, you can use a tie strap or something similar, to secure the hose in a position that is a high as you can make it.

97 Ford Ranger I noticed a hose hanging out of my rear axle. It's on the drivers side and comes out the top of the axle. I was wondering where the other end is suppose to hook up to as it looks like the...

It is a vent for the rear end and should fasten to the box or a frame crossmember. Fasten it as high as you can reasonably get it because while it lets air in it can also let water in. Hope this helps.

may be the breather hose for the axle. looking around can be difficult seeing theres not alot of room. there should be a stem coming out the top side of the axle, around the pumpkin.

965 Ford Mustang 2+2 fastback. I noticed a hose hanging rear

The hose is likely the differential vent hose. If you get under there and take a look around the rear end you will likely see where it was originally secured.

I have a hose hanging from my rear axle. Where is

It is a vent for the rear end. It would have been attached to a frame cross member. The fastener has probably rusted off. Use a piece of wire or a zip tie and fastn it back up. Hope this helps.

Hose from the front differential.

This hose you refer to is the breather tube for the differential. It connects to a fitting at the top of the differential housing and runs up the back side of the radiator so you won't run the risk of water entering the differential if you submerge the front axle in water. Reconnect the rubber hose to the fitting on the differentail.

Hose hanging from front of car

It's likely the lower coolant hose - the greenish yellow fluid is coolant. When you bottomed out, you either separated or tore the lower coolant hose, or you cracked the radiator. Either way, you need to fix it before you continue driving the car.
