What's this thing?

This thing is slowly dripping coolant, I just want to know what it's called so I can tell Ford to fix it under my warranty. Thanks.

wash that motor before you go for warranty work

it wouldnt be a check valve because it doesnt allow coolant to only flow one way, it cuts off coolant flow

you should have one beard, my 3.0 has one and my dads 93 even had one, it may be kind of hidden after the BL and all the other shenannigans you have under there. itll be very odd if it doesnt though
