depending on make, model, year, engine and emissions it could be almost anything.

where on the engine does it go? (connect to?) What size hose are you talking about? Can you upload a picture of it?

is there any water leak? oil leak? vacuum leak? is there any noise from the hose? is there any air blowing out of the hose?

have you had this car for a while and just noticed this? or is this a "new to you" vehicle and you're concerned? Or, this is a car that you worked on and you don't remember this hose before? What made you notice that the hose doesn't look normal?

I have worked on a lot of vehicles and there are hoses and vacuum lines all over the place. Since you posted in Buick I suspect you are working on a Buick but even Buick, it has a lot of models and engine sizes. And the emission systems are different on specific models made for CA cars.
