Question about 1997 Ford Econoline

My oil intake tube is disconnect from engine

I notice that my oil intake tube is disconnected from engine. I see that there is a clamp in the actual nut that is suppose to screw onto the engine. But, when I put my finger inside the engine part I didn't notice any threads. I believe this is the reason
I'm losing power. Does anyone know what can I do?
