Default Informed im missing a hose on air intake?

First off thanks for taking the time to read and answer my questions. All of you on this forum have saved my butt time and time again.

I brought in my cruiser for its regular oil change yesterday and the guy says your missing something here and points at the open air sucking tube coming out near the air intake. Now this is new to me and I never noticed it before but I dont know a ton about cars to begin with. Pictures are included with arrows pointing towards the ninjad hose. What is missing and how can I fix it?

That hose goes to the bottom of the Air Intake.

Invidious, Lion7718 answered your question perfectly so no need to to add to that. I just wanted to say that at the end of the other hose you have in your second picture is the PCV Valve (where the leaking oil is) so you might want to pull that hose off, unscrew the PCV Valve and take it to your nearest auto store (for reference) and replace that piece.

Thumbs up Re: Informed im missing a hose on air intake?

Since the car no longer has the factory air intake "I bought it like this btw" Im assuming that If i rig it up a hose that will feed into the K@N it would perform its function? I will do that crewzin, that hose looks like it needs to be replaced for sure thanks everyone If I could Hi Five you over the internet I would!

Most aftermarket intakes, IF they were made for the PT, will have someplace for that hose to attach. Look around the entire circumference of the air intake for a place for that hose to go. If the air intake wasn't designed for the PT, yes, you can find a place somewhere to attach the hose.

just stick one of these on there instead. they have them at all parts stores. they're cheap and you wont need to drill holes or route anything anywhere.
