Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

If you are referring to the solenoid shown in the picture at the link below (only component attached to front of pedestal) then that's the exhaust back pressure solenoid.

you answered the question. Thank you. If you don't mind one more question. I am a marine mechanic and from what I know the very concept of this BPCV is a bad idea. Would it through codes if deleted?
Expert:  Kenny Z. replied 9 months ago.

Yes it would, if the solenoid were deleted it would set codes P0470, P0471,P0472.

Hello again,

I was reviewing some of my older questions and noticed I was never compensated for this question because it was not rated. If it was your intention to not rate me and use my services free of charge then I will accept that as a free service I provided and move on.

Thanks,
