Default Hose From Oil Filler

I ended up breaking my hose that comes out of where you fill up the oil and goes to the air boxes that attaches to the throttle body. Is that a big deal? Can i leave it with out that hose? And what is that hose for?

That's the Crankcase Return Hose - lets the built up pressure in the block get cycled into the intake and burned through the engine. You need it, and yet you don't. Would be a good time to replace it with a catch can or a small filter
