Question about 2004 Dodge Intrepid
The part that broke off is the cooling system purging valve housing. I had the same problem. Apparently, these engines' cooling system must be purged whenever you allow ANY air in, for example, if you let it run out of water due to a leak, or you make any sort of repairs on the cooling system where you had to drain the coolant. Basically, if there is ANY air in the cooling system it will turn into a steam chamber creating too much pressure. Did you have a hose, radiator, thermostat or coupling changed recently? Be sure to purge the system and you will solve the "pressure cooker" issue. Good luck.
