I just purchased this truck and found this piece broken but can't tell what it is or where it goes but it should not be open the the engine compartment. Please help.

On one side there's a crankcase vent--it's a connection for a hose that would go to the air cleaner housing. On the other side is a fitting for the PCV valve which would connect to the plenum (intake manifold.)

I don't have a 3.9, and your picture is a little difficult to figure out. But I suspect that the general layout of the V6 is similar to the V8--the PCV is on the passenger's side valve cover, the crankcase vent is on the driver's side, with the oil cap.
