Default Crankcase Breather Hose

Good day all,
My wife's 2003 PT Cruiser 2.0L has had a rough vibration when idle after changing the Timing Belt but the strange thing is that, I noticed that the Crankcase Breather Hose was quite weak on the top end where the vacuum takes place and when I unplugged it while the engine was running, the vibration stopped immediately.

Now my question is, is it safe to drive the car with the hose unplugged to prevent the vibrations until I order a new hose?

Kind regards,

Tim.

Yes it is "safe" to have the breather hose not connected to the PCV system and vent atmosphere. It is the way the old engines were run pre 70"s.
