Rogue Vacuum Line - Where does this go?

Hey Guys, need a little help here please!

Just replaced the Camshaft position sensor and can't seem to figure out where this line is supposed to go. Put air cleaner back on and drove around, pulled codes for cylinder 3 and cylinder 4 misfire with fuel cutoff. Camshaft position sensor code is gone.

Thinking this line has something to do with it, before I replace coils and plugs. Any help greatly appreciated! First picture shows where the line is coming from, below the engine.

Ah, ok cool thank you! I was kinda hoping I needed to plug it in somewhere due to the misfires, but I will check with the plugs and coils from here then.

Plug and coil check would be a good start, but you're thinking old school. New computer controlled engine requires something more than a shade tree mechanic approach. You could post the misfire code(s) you read and we can go from there. A misfire to a computer controlled engine means one cylinder or cylinders is not producing as much power as the other. The computer can determine this by the rotational speed of the crank when the cylinder is fire.

Thanks for that! Finally getting around to update this. I replaced the plugs and still getting the misfires so before getting into the CCV, I took it over the shop and did a smoke test.

Smoke test revealed a leak in the DISA Valve so I'm ordering a new one tonight.
