So I was cleaning maf today when I stumbled across this. It is a stick in the tube that comes off the big tube near the air filter. What the heck is going on?

Edit your pic to point to your stick. Not seeing what you mean.

Anypne know if there is supposed to be something connected to that little hose of a plug that goes on it. Why would someone stick a stick in it? Should I pull it out?

Looks like the transmission breather hose. Whoever thought it was a good idea to stick a stick up there should have stuck it somewhere else. SMH

My guess through searching is AT breather tube maybe. I'm going to pull the stick out. If anyone thinks I should not pull it out let me know. Research didn't show any plug in them tubes so I don't know why someone would put it in there.

Pull the stick out. I’d want any pressure buildup in the tranny to be able to use the intended escape path.

If someone had over filled the ATF at some point it might have been venting out this tube.
Could have had the vehicle parked a while and didn't want a dirt dobber building a nest in there. 🤓

One thing for sure, it warn't born there.

Unlikely it was a factory install either. :)

OK after pulling stick these dash lights came on. After about three shut off and turn on the check engine light is still on. Getting it checked. But any ideas why pulling the stick would make it set off all those lights?
