It is just a vapor release tube. It hangs down outside of the battery and discharges into the air.

The battery light does not mean the battery is bad. The battery is there only to start the vehicle. Once running, the alternator supplies the power to operate the car and recharge the power lost by the battery during the starting process. Anytime the vehicle draws more power than the alternator is producing, the battery light will come on. In most cases, this indicates a faulty alternator, but there could be other electrical issues that can cause the problem. Have the charging system tested to ensure that it is working okay. If you don't, you will discharge the new battery. Since you say it is only happening at idle, it is possible that the serpentine belt may be glazed and slipping, or that your belt tensioner may be weak and faulty. The belt drives the alternator and if it is slipping, that will reduce alternator output.

When driving if i push the gas pedle to the floor what would cause the car to slow down and the RPMs to go up ?

automatic i assume? the trans could be slipping if trans fluid is brownish red and smells kinda like burnt catpiss that is an indacation . if someone tells you its slipping and needs to be replaced put new trans filter and fluid change first i have had alot of success with tranies just doing that and its relatively cheap

Dipstick tube came out and i cant find the hole to put it back in

Some times the tubes rot off. Make sure you look where the tube pulled off the block there's a small hole on the side of the block the tube goes into. If it rotted off you will have to replace it just make sure you get the other piece out of the hole.
