Default What the heck is it?

On my 1993 WB40 I have this orange thing in the back of the bus lower rear drivers side , there is an air line comming from the left side of the turbo connected to this " orange thing"
There is also an air line from that orange thing going to the underside of the bus. I also noticed there is a ground wire and a hot leg connected to it.
What the heck is it?
What does it do to the TURBO?
and I assume when it goes bad it affects the turbo operation?
Anyone know what it is and what it does?
Asking because i`m only getting 12 lbs of boost ( down from 27)..............changed the primary and secondary fuel filters and the air filter still only 12 lbs.
Thanks for all you help
Fred

It is an ether canister for winter starts. Alot of people have taken them out. It is probably empty anyway

Not your boost problem check for exhaust turbo leak, air cooler leak

thanks Wayne
and Bill
will disconnect that for sure
no leak in exhaust but will have to check the cooler
also the amber check engin light comes on when boost is @ around 3 lbs , not at 0 or above 5 , any ideas ?
thanks again

Replace your MAPP Sensor on the curb side of your blower. It has a small hose and a 2 wire electrical connector to it.
