You need a vent valve (not sure that is what it is called). Check at Home Depot etc.

Mopar, Check out Batman_777 's previous post on this thread. Trailers and RVs sometimes have this vent set up. The valve that he has pictured screws into the female thread you were talking about. This is a flapper type assembly and is readily available at any Lowes, Home Depot or plumbing supply store. Don't plug the line or you'll have a drainage problem in the sink that it services, use the pictured assembly it acts as a vent and a plug.

Remove the toilet and check the seal. This should fix the problem.

I just thought it was rather odd t ofind that piece of pipe stubbed up in the corner and be missing a fitting or something...

So yeah I get a vent valve at home depot next trip...
