you shouldnt need to replace that whole tube pull it out a little and add silicone around the edge and put it back in and just buy a piece of hose with the same curve to replace the part where its cut its leaking some oil probably due to the vacuum leak once you replace the hose it should stop

if your talking about the PCV Elbow going into the intake manifold you should be able to do it yourself. I did mine. You have to but the complete hose from Ford.
