Hi, I'm missing a cap on one of the pipes shown below.

Can someone please point me the name of this so I can order a replacement? Also, is this an important part?

I believe that would be the cap for the A/C line service valve. I think you can get those at an auto parts store.

Replace it first chance, or cover it with a piece of masking tape in the interim. It keeps dirt out of the valve area.

If you can go to a junkyard, you can snag one from there (you can probably get it for free). Not extremely important but would be nice to have it on there.

As @WiiMaster said, check the local parts store. These caps are not usually vehicle-specific and the parts stores usually stock them (at least, my local NAPA and Carquest stores do). If not in stock they can order them for you for a few $. Honda dealer probably stocks then too, but likely $5+ each!

This is just the first I came across. You only need one of each, not 5.

They are near "universal" fit for R-134a.

At my junkyard they take those off before putting the cars out in the yard. I believe because they have to remove all the fluids out of the car for safety.

They do have to save us from global warming by recovering the refrigerant gas. Which is a gas, not a fluid, but same basic idea.
