It's the idle control valve, if the idle drops when you turn on the lights, blowers etc it will increase the idle speed.

Most of the time it's not used.

Have a look here for part numbers etc…

many thanks , would the split hose cause any cold idling issues?🤔

Could do… try and wrap some electrical tape tight around it to stop any air leaks and see if that helps…
