I have a 1994 Buick Century 3.1L V6
I know that the PCV hoses in my car need some TLC; that fact is readily apparent because someone has liberally applied zip ties to some of them to keep them in place.
In preparation of changing both the hoses and the PCV valve, I was looking everything over and tracing the hoses around to see what exactly I needed to buy for replacement.
While inspecting closer I found this piece connected to the PCV hose near my throttle body that inserts into the air intake manifold. Not only are there zip ties holding the hose together, but it appears that someone's also tried to use superglue to hold it together.
Since this car is my only way around, I was too afraid of the thing crumbling to pieces if I handled it too much, so I didn't want to pull it apart to get a better look at it.
I haven't been able to figure out what this thing is called to make any headway in searching for a replacement. What is this peice called?
