check engine light came on😭😭😭😭

so got off work was about todrive off when I noticed the check engine light came on got home pop the trunk and I noticed there was some whistling sound like there was a hole in an air hose, tracked it down to this but I'm not sure what its called. I hoped this is the only thing that's wrong with it, also is it okay if I tape it up and drive with it due to the fact that I already drove it home like that and the closest auto parts store is a couple miles away. 2004 mustang GT

That elbow has a kink in it.

Yes. You can drive it while you are looking for a replacement.

Do I have to do something else in order for the check light engine to turn off? But for some reason my gas gauge keeps fluctuating cuz I just filled the tank then when I was driving home about 4 miles away it dropped a quarter tank but then it slowly went up to a full tank and then back down and I wasn't going up hills just a straight level drive

When did you relocate your motor to your trunk?

If you have a sct, pull up the code to see what it is, then clear it to see if it comes back

Less weight in the front better handling, more weight in the back better traction...
Wise combo...
There's a reason why Porsche is the most successful manufacturer in auto racing...
