P0105 and P1519 because of a "y-valve"??

Is this possibly the cause of my CEL? The hose from some sort of fuel pump in my 99 slk230 (near the oil cap) leads back to a little y shape with another tube attached to it at the other end.

This y valve looks cleanly torn, I'm thinking that it's not supposed to be like this. There is a slight whistle from there, so I assume it is some sort of vacuum tube?

I see that some members have replaced the tubing for a few bucks with a short DIY time and it seems to be a cheap and common culprit. What is this y-piece called if I were to order it from the dealer?

If it’s a vacuum leak it will cause a cel. Can you post a picture?
