It is a vent for the battery and needs to be hooked to it.
Hopefully your new battery was the right application and has that provision.
Don't use one that doesn't

I have a 2000 silverado 2500 4x4 auto transmission. I noticed today a puddle under the tranny. I looked at the yranny and found a black rubber tube attached to a hanger but not connected to anything...


Hi Chris. Not very familiar with these particular transmissions, but if the tube is "dripping" fluid and not "spraying" fluid, I would have to say that this tube may be some sort of pressure relief or overflow as you had suggested. Did you have the transmission serviced or add fluid recently? If so, I'd guess that it may have been slightly overfilled. As you drive your truck and the fluid in the transmission heats up it expands and fluid pressure can/will increase. If the system pressure is too high it can do as much internal damage to your transmission as running low on fluid will. This tube may the outlet of a pressure relief device. Keep an eye on it... if it persists I'd have someone qualified take a look.

2000 Z3 2.0 Sudden onset misfiring with traction control light and EML light coming on. Happened as went over slight bump and noticed an odd smell ?burning which lasted a minute or so. Car starts fine but...


It sounds like you have a loose connection or wire somewhere, becuase you stated it started happening after you hit a bump which the jolt would cause movement in a component or wire causing some type of short or mis-connection to happen. I would check all wires, cables for loose or corroded connections, loose ground wires, especially battery and starter connections and tighten accordingly.

2000 BMW Z3. When it rains and my car is parked


I had this same problem - 2 things to check:
Most likely it's the 3rd brake light - check the seal on the inside (you need to remove the black plastic cover inside the boot lid to be able to see - this has 4 or 6 little tabs that hold it in place and break very easily, so take care as you remove it. I suggest using a blunt knife or similar to ease it out). I had mine replaced not that long ago and as far as I can recall they're pretty inexpensive.
Also check the rubber seal that goes all the way round the boot opening, make sure it's attached all the way round and has no defects.
Hope that helps!

1998 Buick Riviera battery


Make sure that you have the ventilation tubing when replacing the battery. The car is designed to vent battery gases from beneath the car. Substituting a different type battery (without vent ports, a small hole that is located at each end of the battery ) or if you decide to use the battery without the ventilation tubing, you run the risk of an explosion. This is due to the proximity of the battery to the fuel pump, which is also located beneath the seat.Underhood batteries vent naturally into the air within the engine compartment. In your car there is a small hole in front of your battery that leads to the underside of your car.Your tubing is designed to carry the battery's vapors way and direct it out of your car through this hole.
