    What is this opening-gas smell under hood

    So I have this gas smell in the car and I popped the hood to look around and found this exposed opening shooting air out that smells like gasoline. This can't be normal. I just bought the car and other than this it runs great. can anybody chime in on what is supposed to be there? It's right next to the blue sensor

    Your hose is clearly loose/gone. Look for a hose around there with a butterfly clamp

    Ok I'll take a look but where does this hose lead to? This is my second time looking at this motor I'm new to subies. I didn't see any other hose hanging before but I will look a bit more. The hose could just be gone and I wouldn't know what or where it is supposed to go
