I noticed a bit of oil (tranny fluid?) was caked around where the hole is and there was still some oil fresh inside it...
First of all; what the heck is this thing? Why would it have come out? And is it a problem that it was disconnected? Could I have lost fluids that will need to be replaced?...

Hi xwhit3devilx,

As dan50 has suggested, I would recommend that you swing by your dealership so they can inspect. They'll be able to tell you what the tube is and replace any lost fluids, if necessary.

Feel free to reach out to me via PM if you need additional assistance.
