Evap purge solenoid or EGR solenoid - either way it won't cause you a problem. Just plug the lines that were going to it. The ECU is only looking for a good circuit and even with a broken nipple it will still have that. As long as you aren't seeing a CEL then just plug the lines and ignore it.

Yep, no cel and runs the same so ill plug it. Plugging the line is easy but nothing really to hook onto the broken piece. I could probally get one cheap from a car being parted out;) if it would make it that much easier of a repair.

You could remove the solenoid and associated hoses, and replace it with a 33Ohm, 5 watt resistor as well.
