    I have a 2014 DCSB with Auto Trans and V6. Very Stock.

    I am having trouble identifying what breathers are in the engine bay. There is one to a smaller hose and one to a larger hose.

    Front Diff and Transfer case? Does the Transmission have one?
    Thanks for your help.

    Those are in fact your front diff breathers. You also have one on the rear diff that most people relocate

    Cool.

    I found the rear one. Lots of good stuff on relocating that one. Just wanted to make sure the other ones on the truck were high enough.

    Thanks.

    Those are in fact the front diff and transfer case breathers. Nothing to do with the transmission.

    perfect, lets get technical! lmao
    but it is connected & it the hose does meet up with the hose connected to the tranny & comes up the fender well.
    Thanks for setting me strait!

    OK; I like beating a dead horse. There was a lot of conflicting data being slung in this thread. So, there are two breathers under my hood. One is for the front diff, the other is the transmission? Also I have a breather in the rear dif.

    P.S. I'm running a 2014 V6 4x4 auto trans.

    Are you planning on turning into a submarine ??

    If not relocate the rear Diff breather and move on.

    Transmission - Yes breather (previous picture)
    Transfer case - Yes
    Transmission and Transfer case - breathers may be mounted on the left side of the firewall? :notsure: Can't really tell from the parts diagrams.


    Font axle - Yes (yes appear to be the pictured ones from your original post.)
