    I'm wondering about that black plastic square box to the left of your arrow? Just clutters up the engine bay on the intake hose

    I took it off a couple years back. Transmission doesn't drop out, but every now and then weird noises come from the engine. I let it idle one time and a piece of toast dropped out from the bottom. No idea what happened, but I leave a plate under it every morning

    The cover is there to distract you, from the fact that you have a Camry motor.

    It protects the top of the top of the engine from dust and dirt. The dealer told me that it is also for if the engine bay catches fire, it will melt and put out the fire....
