If you can guess what this is...

...you'll get a cool point.

I was doing a bit of diagnostic photographing on the car today, and I just wanted to see how well you all know your engine components.

Good guesses, but not quite. This item is connected to the engine.

You're right, I'll post another one later, though I bet it will give it away.

And no, but you're sort of getting closer still...

Yes, and yes...though not in the picture. The part goes back a little off to the left and then connects with the belt.

And here's the other picture:

Nope. On my particular car, you're getting farther away.
