    That device is not on the engine. It's a vent commonly found on transmissions, and I'd hate to say, it's not the cause of your car stalling.

    In a worse case scenario, water may enter the tube if the hose is chewed or broken.

    If it is completely plugged without any ventilation, then you will eventually encounter a blown torque converter seal, or rear tail-shaft seal. If the vehicle is a front wheel drive, the output half-shaft seals will be blown if that device were plugged up.

    The car only throws the check engine when it is stalled and I can't exactly check it with obd when im stalled at a stop light. What ended up being the issue is my throttle body. Cleaned that up real nice and works again. Thanks everyone for your help.
