Those are typical issues with a failing engine speed sensor.

You can try a wood or sheet metal screw to get the broken plastic tube out of the hose. Most auto parts stores will carry a package of plastic fittings. I know AutoZone has one that worked.
You would need about a 3.5mm fitting.
If the plastic tube doesn't come out with a screw inside, you can just crush it with pliers and pull out the broken pieces.
