That would be the BCA (Boost control actuator). I advise not to drive it until you get a new one/used one. Someone on here is bound to have one.

Thanks for the info but now the bad news, I have been driving on it for a month or so with the worst gas mileage. The car was kicking off a couple of codes, one being that it was running to lean so I decided to do new plugs and that is when I found it.

That part is a good possibility to cause bad MPG. If you can, I'd like to see a couple pics of the inside of it.

Okay it looks like there are none available locally. So I am hoping someone on the board can overnight me one. With that being said should I shut the car down until I get the part, is there a serious risk of damage if i drive it the way it is?

Thanks,

Thanks,
Yes, in certain conditions, such as running lean, etc, if the engine cannot dump the boost, the motor eventually will pop a piston or 2...or a few.

go to car-parts.com, put in your year, etc and pick supercharger out of the parts list. there are other lots close to you that might have one. the one I gave you was first on the list
