From the diagram on the other thread, it's the coolant supply line for throttle body heat (anti-ice). A hose gets connected to it.

i would inspect the end that came off for cracks and deterioration, as well as proper fit. iirc, this hose should be clamped on with a hose clamp.

that means that either:
a) the hose clamp failed
b) the hose burst/split
c) the hose was replaced with an incorrect size

the hose should go on rather snugly to begin with, and any corrosion or buildup on the nipple should be removed to ensure a proper fit. (emery cloth will do, or scotchbrite it there's not a lot of scale on the metal)

once this is put back together, the cooling system needs to be bled. it's not too difficult, but sometimes people have a tough time (i think they rush through it ).

when bled and running, you can verify the system is operating properly.

good luck with the repair.

I'm sure you know by now that it needs to be fastened with a hose clamp. From the looks of this, I'd check your entire cooling system especially for low levels of anit-freeze. Don't forget to bleed the system for trapped air.
If that line was disconnected there is a good possibility that some other lines or connections are failing.
Good Luck!
