That looks like the Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve, I can't quite tell from that picture though.

The EGR valve filters nitrogen oxide out of your exhaust, and helps your engine to run cooler; without it you will not smog testing. You can clean out the EGR valve with carb cleaner and your engine will idle normally again, you may need to replace the gasket.
