That's the vent hose for the transmission. It keeps pressure equalized on the inside of the transmission. The hose goes onto that nipple sticking up and runs a short distance upward to a small vent. The tip of the hose is actually clipped onto a large 15mm bolt that mates the transmission to the engine block.

Here is a photo of a 5 speed that has the revised vent tubing that's much shorter which was used mostly for 3rd generation S series. Yours is just the older style with a longer hose, but the function is the same.
