the pipe going into the airbox is just a crank breather hose so the pcv valve is likely gunked up take the pipe off and clean it out all gunked up shows oil changes have been neglected check inside the airbox theres a small filter to catch the oil vapours it may well need changed you get it in the air filter kit code is 1579
