I can't search well for what this is because I don't know what to call it! I am just curious about what it's called and it's function.
This is a picture of a 2013 2.4L Optima EX. Thanks for the knowledge!

What's it's purpose? And how do I know it's working? Sorry for stupid questions. Just a strange thing I've never seen before

Copied the following:
Your engine on your Kia Optima is equipped with an intake manifold flow control valve to promote maximum air/fuel mixture that is sent to the combustion chamber. The valve restricts air flow, causing it to tumble or swirl. The tumbling action helps ensure that the fuel and air mix thoroughly and burn faster. The intake manifold flow control valve and variable valve timing work together to improve fuel economy, idle stability, and emissions.

CEL on?
