Looks like the canister purge valve solenoid to me. Could you pull the part number. It should be printed on it somewhere.

It is part of the vehicle Evaporative Emission Control (EVAP) system. The EVAP system prevents fuel vapors in the fuel tank from escaping into the atmosphere

Thanks for the replys .☺ so if it dont or shouldnt 'vent' in to the air - does that mean there should be a pipe connected to it ? - like some sort of vacuum pipe from the intake manifold for example ? ☺
