What is this part? It is dripping minute amounts of coolant onto the exhaust manifold and making a mess. The coolant is not coming from any of the four hoses that connect to it. I see it has one main hose that comes from the radiator and then one goes to the heater core, etc.

Any idea what this part is? I think it is cracked and that is why coolant is seeping from its side.

Thats the heater temperature control valve. It can be purchased at most auto parts.
