Re: identify this part

Can't tell what's under the plastic, but if it's the power steering pump, that could be the power steering pressure switch.

A bump is to make the post appear active and stay toward the top of the new or active post list.

Variable valve timing solenoid.

I guess it's not the power steering pump under the plastic.

Re: identify this part

Just got off the phone with the parts dept and their is no seal or pn for that solenoids gasket. I wonder if its part of the solenoid or if I can do something to fix it. Any ideas?

There is a part # for a solenoid seal. The basic part # is 6A545. To replace it the valve cover would have to be removed, so you'll need a valve cover gasket and spark plug tube seals.
