I was perusing under my vehicle recently and came across a device that I have no idea what it is. After going through the FSM I found a few things that sort of look like it and I determined that it is a Vacuum Switching Valve (VSV). One of the few in the vehicle. I had to repair one of the tubes on it because it was torn.
This device is located under the front passenger side and it has three rubber tubes attached to it. One of which goes to the vacuum tank under the battery, another one goes to the air intake (just below where the MAF is) a third one is capped off. It is secured to the car with a screw and it also has a fourth tube (which is short) connected to what looks like a canister.
I want to ensure all the tubes are connected to where they are supposed to be.

Hi all I took some pictures of this valve. I search on the internet and found it to be a "Valve, duty vacuum switching". Don't know what it belongs to. The first image shows the device with a blue connector attached to it. It also shows the hoses attached to it. There is one hose attached to it that can not be seen in this picture but it is attached to a canister which is located right under the oil filter (see second image).
Can someone please help me. I evidently find this unit hanging from the bottom of my car. it is the exact same one as the one on the picture, just that it has broken off from half of it so I don't have the blue connector part.
I took it to Lexus but they show me to parts model 25860 and 17650 but neither one look the same, and being that it missing half of it they can't Identify it. (Mine has 2 valves to the side and 1 point down) most of the one online is 2 valve on the top and 1 in the front.
And if someone can help me with where the line goes I would Soooooo apreciate it!
