    I believe that could be a collapsed vacuum line going to the map sensor.hard to say for sure but its so common on the gm 2.4 l engines.have someone look at it as the vehicle is started to see if it swells n collapses.it out front of the engine about the middle right under a electrical connection.the vacuum hose is about 6 inches long.
