Default What is this cap, plug???

I noticed the wet, oily look after using seafoam on the motor a week or so ago, it wasn't there before.

Is this a vent or plug?

Maybe nothing, Anyone?

Not sure offhand. I know the '05 model with the 4.7 has nothing like that on it. I'll keep my eyes open for an '03 model to compare it to.

After looking around on Air Ram Performance's website i ran across the same exact plug to plug and relocate the IAT sensor. I removed mine today and it had the same fittings as the IAT. Was this maybe a location that dodge figured on using, like in past magnum engines??? Its known the cooler the air this sensor gets, you get alil more h.p. Possibly this was a quick fix or Doge maybe used this location in other vehicles?

Here's a link to the plug i found online: http://www.airram.com/product.php?ca...&productid=177
