    So I guess my rear RF capacitor was left unattached and must have gotten fried sitting against a hot egr line.
    Any reason to replace this? Front one is intact. I don't suppose this being disconnected had anything to do with my radio cutting out occasionally (and staying out). Doesn't this just prevent rapid popping on radio from cylinders firing?

    If your radio sounds good I would not worry about it.

    If you need a replacement, I might have one around somewhere.

    normally, they are easy to find at the jy. I agree that if the radio sounds fine, I wouldn't worry about it, but check the radio on an AM station as those are the most sensitive to rf interference.
