That plate covers the crankcase breather assembly. It is likely dirty and needs to be disassembled and cleaned. There are peices of mesh screen that you can clean with some gasoline or carburetor/choke cleaner You will most likely break the gaskets and need to replace them.

yup, breather assy... is it covered in oil / dirt...? you could just degrease / pressure wash and see if that helps... i did get lucky like that on one of mine... but as was said.. just clean it and you are good to go... or else you have blow by into the case exiting this way..... but yeah they will puff a little bit ... not fogging for mosquitoes or anything but a puff now and then i think is normal for their age....
