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!!!

As for rubber garments, you're in the wrong forum. Sorry couldn't resist.

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.JIGGER RACIN'

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?
