What's this??

Looked on RealOem.com but did not find it....anyone know what this part is? It's making a ticking noise like a valve. What's its function?

Thanks for the information. I found out that this part affects the idle and when the vehicle starts from a standing position. It's possible that one of the pins inside the unit could be sucked into the engine...not good. So, it will be replaced or repaired.
