OK I dumb! My daughter just bought this truck and lives two hours from us. She called and said this box fell off from the bottom of the truck and was hanging by 2 hoses. She took a picture on her cell phone and sent it to me. For the life of me I can't make out what it is! It says on the box " canister purge line from throttle body". Could you tell me what it is and is it fairly easy to replace?
