What part of this car is this?

I think it is part of the cooling (radiator) system, because what I think is coolant in steam form is leaking out of it when the car begins to overheat.

Thanks!

    Would help if we knew what car we were looking at. It LOOKS like it can be a diverter valve; but it could also be some sort of thermostatic control. I've never seen a diverter valve like that before but that doesn't mean anything.

    If they're vacuum hoses then it could be a one way valve.
