What do you call this part?

I can't order parts if I don't know what it is...

Had a vacuum leak I fixed for a while with some electrical tape, but the thingamiggy has continued to degrade so I need to replace it. If I had a good parts diagram, I'd look it up...but I can't find a parts diagram online.





Thanks!

Matt

I'd call it a PCV elbow.

Take the old one into any good AP store, look in the HELP section. Pretty sure they'll have something that'll work.

That would be called the spacebar on the keyboard it is used to put spaces in your sentences so we can read them. hahahaha

Thanks guys!

After I posted this, I decided to throw the old one back on (taped backup to minimize sucking in dust) and drove down to NAPA with my phone with the pictures.

Got a water hose elbow that I had to trim down a little bit that worked.

I guess the next question is wether the water hose is good, or should I try and find the exact elbow to replace it?
