Cool W107 Front of Engine Part ??

On the front of the engine, on driver's side, between the distributor and the oil reservor canister is a assembly attached to the engine block. It is a round vertical cylinder with a metal twist off top. The top has a short chain attached to it and the cylinder so people like me will not lose it when it is taken off. There are wires/small hoses ?? attached to the bottom of the cylinder.
What is this assembly for? What does it do?

Thank you for the reply. Sounds like something I need to leave alone.
