Where does this hose connect to?

(1997 Nissan Altima)
in Los Angeles, CA on January 03, 2012
My 1997 nissan altima is shutting down at stop signs or lights. My brother looked at it and found a hose that is not connected to anything. We can't find where it belongs. The top of the hose is shaped like a candy cane and it is located by the transmission. Any help out there. Thank you.

Do you have a check engine light? The hose sounds like the vent for the transmission and is suppose to be open. I recommend looking at the air intake duct hose from air cleaner/mass air sensor to engine and vent hoses branching off of that. Make sure there are no cracks or leaks.
