Unhappy 10 year old tube decides to self destruct. HELP

Where the ducktape is on both ends is where the tube just tore. I picked it up to move it while putting the valve cover back on and it literally just popped apart. But now there's a whistling sound not unlike that of when your intake boots are torn. ( Just replaced mine two days ago ) so that's not the problem. Is there anyway I can replace just this tube. It seems to enter into the back of the engine. Any further details etc. would be much appreciated. What does it do? What could go wrong now?

Also if anyone knows what would cause an odd sound whenever I turn the fans on (heat).. this didn't start until that tube snapped though I doubt they're related..

Dreaming of the ///M.
