The wifes escape screwed up yesterday and as soon as I opned the hood I hear what sounded like a vacum leak.

Found this thingy with a hole in it.

Anyone know what this is or why it would blow up?

Looks like a egr valve
Has a tube comming up to it from exaust right
As for why it broke it does say ford on the grill lol
Probably the heat cycles caused it to crack

Thanks Ill look it up somewhere.
Do you suppose a plugged cat could back pressure and do that?

Thats why I was surprised to see it broke because things that say "FORD" on the grille are usually pretty dependable Lol

Don't think a plugged cat could cause that
Don't think truck would run if it was plugged bad enough to blow that out

Looks like something flew up and hit it. badly plugged cat would put on a CEL and the car wouldn't run worth a chit.. Can't remember what the valves are worth top of my head.
