Name that part!

Hello everybody, long time listener(viewer), first time caller(poster). Well guys my 03' 325i is getting up there in mileage and its starting to show it. I'am currently dealing with the dreaded lean codes, misfires issues that i have been finding on posts. I took it upon myself to fix it myself rather then to get ripped off at the dealer or local mechanic. well after research i figured it was the CVV/Oil seperator issue (so i thought). i took my car apart and found out that lower boot was ripped and oil line to cvv was broken. i decided to replace the whole cvv unit while its bound to break soon. Anyways long story short i was taking parts out: icv,lower boot, cvv. i dont know when but a rubber cap fell in my hand from underneath. i didnt know what its for! i know there are 2 rubber vacuum caps behind the manifold near the firewall but this fell from under the manifold. can anybody tell me what this is for and if it going to cause issues, because i already put my car back together. anyways car still runs like crap and just made it home without breaking down. only thing i can think of next is fuel related. thank you in advance

ps. im still dealing with rough idle, and going from 9 codes up to 11! WTF
