    Rubber Garments

    Okay, I have been searching for weeks for the Rubber fitting that goes around the PCV valve. I called a dealer and he gave me a number, soes I order via part number through GM parts Direct. Well FINALLY get that part and it's totally not the right thing at all. Where do I find this at? Also, what about the 2 to 1 rubber hose fitting that sits in the rear of the engine also part of the PCV system. HELP PLEASE!!!

    The part that the PVC valve goes into is called the " PVC valve pipe ". Tell your GM dealer that's what you need. I believe it's a complete unit. It goes from the rear of the left rocker arm, to the throttle body, and houses the PCV valve.

    Hope this helps.

    I used the link and made mine from lowe's. Now I don't get loud popping out of the exhaust on decel. The car has ZERO hessistation, and I sound's great!!

    Oh yea, I was geting a SES light p0171 "lean bank 1" that is now gone. The engine has 133xxx mi on her, and its running quieter than when I bought her at 64xxx, four years ago.

    Great FIx!!!! thanks!!!!

    Well I still am getting a lean code!!!! I have changed so many parts and still same problem... but no performance issuse. Gas milage is still good as well. However, I do hear a "maybe" exhaust leak somewhere. Kinda a "rattle hiss" sound when the engine decel as I shift at low rpm's. Could an exhaust leak after sensor 1 cause a lean condition?

    Yes, very much so. If fresh air gets into exhaust from a leak it can trick the o2 sensors into thinking it's lean.

    Again, I check everything over again and found out that my passenger side Air-Check valve is f'd up. It allows air both way threw it. They are supposed to be a one way valve. However my driver side ACV is fairly new, but when I inspected it, there was no gunk or any signs of wear??? So could the passenger side ACV be causing a complete vavcuum lose for the whole system?
