What exactly is the purpose of this part, what is the most common cause, can I continue to drive the vehicle, any adverse effects if I do so? Seems to be running fine but the guy at the Mazda dealership I called didn't even know what it was, had to go ask someone else and then is spouting off dire circumstances.
Do you
have the same problem?

Sorry I missed out the information of the title.

This is the valve timing solenoid and it affects engine performance and fuel consumption.

You can continue to drive the vehicle but should get it checked and rectified asap because this could be due to oil pressure problem and you run the risk of damaging the engine if that is the case.
