    Hey everyone.

    Does anyone have an idea what this one wire connector to single attachment connection box is? It sits at the valve cover (back of engine) and is bolted onto the block. It is a green/yellow or orange wire and the connector says 40 amp on it. Is this a fuse for something important that I should know about? Is it for grounding the alternator or something else? I have always wondered what it was for or does but can't find anything on it. Just a random non-sensical little box connection that must do something. I am leaning toward fuse but fuse for what, I have no idea.

    That is a capacitor for noise suppresion. It is used along the ASD relay output (Gn/Or) wire path to subdue AM radio interference noise from various EFI/Ign components, particularly the ignition coil and injectors. You can see it at the bottom of this diagram here:

    Thanks, IC.

    That was the furthest thing from my mind. Thanks for making sense of it for me. I have bookmarked it in my notes for future reference. :)
