Is it a vacuum line, coolant line? If the vehicle is driveable, take it to your local autostores, show them. I can't see much from here?

yes that is exactly what it is. The heater hose connects to it. The AC has worked fine this season, but the line is not connected so the heater will work. I need to purchase that nipple. Auto parts store said I had to get the part at the Chev Dealership and it estimated at $184.00 when I called the dealership and described the part.
