What part is this?

Changing the alt on my 00 windstar with the 3.8l and seen a little rod connected to a black box behind it. Located next to lower intake. It looks like the rod is supposed to be hooked up to a lever coming off of the lower intake. Any ideas what part this is and why I haven't noticed it running without it hooked up?

hi...i have put my 2002 ford windstar on a diagnostic reader and it keeps coming up with the code p1401....which has something to do with the EGR circut...now im just wondering ...on the passenger side of the engine there is a black box of somekind with 2 rods connected to it going to 2 brackets sorta on the side of the intake....those 2 rods where disconnected cause the little white clips where broken...im just wondering what this black box (about the size of your 4 fingers lol) is and if that is what could be causing it? ty

Yes that black box and the rod is known as the IMRC (intake manifold runner control) and those white circular clips will eventually break on all windstars and the do cause a check engine light so I would buy those white clips and fix that first. I paid $10 for each white clip from the ford dealer what a ripoff :(((( but you can buy them from rockauto and other auto parts stores.
