Question about Mazda Protege
I am assuming that it is not a water hose as you have not mentioned water leaks.
this would probably mean it is part of the engine breather system, or the vacuum hose for the brake servo.
a leak in eather of these would result in air being constantly drawn into the engine, giving a weak air/petrol mixture which will result in erratic performace and "spluttering".
replace the hose first.
if the problem persists after replacing the hose, feel free to write again.
