Can you identify this part?

So my scheduled repairs are on hold as I hit a deer and now have a lot of front end stuff to replace. This was just behind the radiator. I have no clue what it is. There are two lower hose connections and the wire harness. Molded in the plastic is an indication of what is the top of the part. The only problem with it is the plastic portion that clips into the support attached to the frame is broke. Does anyone know what it is? I’m wondering how critical it is that it is properly clipped in (and thus needs replacing), or if I could just zip tie it to the frame. Thanks.


Not until you identify the vehicle.


That’s the Evap system purge valve.

As long as it secured in place and connected where it should be drive on.
