whats this part?

im new so forgive me. just bought my first rc51,its a 2000. what is the cap thats located under the odometer? it twists off and has a metal hook thing under it and also has a red capped off thing on the outside where you could hook a hose to.

Post a pic I think it's a cover where the flapper valve mechanism was and the cap is a block off for a vacuum line.

Welcome

Please post a pic so we are on the same page. But if it is what I think it is that is the intake snorkel, the flapper is activated by engine vacuum and that cap just plugs the air leak.
