Default Crank Case Vent

So that small hose running off the intake hose is the crank case vent. What might would happen if you happen to find that hose only partially inserted. I don't know how long it had been like that and the only difference I can tell for sure it made was the engine sounds different.

I dont believe anything will happen. Alot of people on other cars cap that spot on the intake and put a breather filter on the crank case. It helps you pull more pure air. Wont do much for you and is generally not emissions legal.

It just means that your crankcase was venting passively. Instead of being vacuumed out. Worse it would have done is make your oil dirtier.
