Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have 1992 corvette and started it up to go for a ride And I got on the road
and realized the engine service soon light was on and it didn't feel right so I
went home and popped the hood and saw a hose that connects to the engine
oil popped off, and started up again and the light was still on any ideas?

You need to scan for the codes to determine the exact reason, but I would say it's related to the hose. Probably a vacuum leak code. Sometimes the code will go out once the system determines all is good. 2-3 start and stop cycles would do it.

I am guessing the hose runs from the valve cover to the intake manifold. Hook it back up and see if it runs correctly. As Tom said the engine light will soon go off.

This looks like a smog control PVC hose that hooks into the throttle body. the hose is bent to fit onto the tube. Look where the tube is wanting to go, and see if you can see an open metal tube. Attach it, and if it is lose, use a connector to keep it one. If it is lose, it will give a signal that too much air is coming into the throttle body and that is what will turn on the "check engine light" comes on.
