Default Crankcase vent tube

I've been looking online for the plastic crankcase vent tube that runs from air intake tube (tube from air filter to throttle body) to the valve cover, it connects right next to the oil filler cap. I can't find it, all I can find are the hoses for the pvc. Anyone ever see them anywhere?

Junk yards are pretty much a dead issue here, the majority of junk yards in Phoenix are really close to downtown, so they are small and refuse to tell you what they have up front, they charge you $3-$5 to get in and never have anything good unless you can catch them right after a totaled ranger comes in.

When mine broke I just got it replaced at the mechanic. I think it cost me about $20.

Well that means they are out there, it must go by a different name - searching for crankcase ventilation tube, crankcase vent, crankcase vent tube...those searches come back with pcv tubes and hoses.

Default Re: Crankcase vent tube

In case anyone needs the part #
KCV-231
2L5Z-6853-A
2L5Z6853A

For cut and paste purposes I put the last number with and without dashes, I've noticed that some parts sources are picky about the dashes.....especially Ford sources.

I bought mine from RockAuto.com for $15.06
