valve cover hose?

i was looking at my engine bay today and found 2 hoses coming out of the valve cover. the top one is a bigger hose and the bottom is the small one. my problem is i saw the bottom one (smaller) is completely destroyed and i want to know if this would be a problem or can i just keep on driving like this? also what is the function of this hose and what does it transfer like air or oil?


this is a photo i found that shows the exact place i am talking about. i am talking about the lower one.



thanks.

i think the smaller hose has something to do with air transfer, my brothers car had that thing all torn up and the car was acting up as if there was a clog in the fuel lines or something,

changed it today with regular heater hose and now the car runs perfect, if you have a vacuum leak make sure you check this hose.
