Tube replacement?
 
Hi all- I was working on my car tonight and I broke the tube in the picture below. It connects to the cold air intake tube and the vacuum line next to the throttle body. Does anyone know what this part is called and if it's easy to find a replacement? I was thinking it's part of the PCV system because there is some oil in it, but the picture of this piece doesn't show in the parts catalog.

Any help is appreciated!

That's actually the clean side oil separator. It connects to the driver side intake tract. Should be available from the local dealer. Wasn't it connected?

Yes, I found out it's the breather cannister and it's $100 to replace because it can't be bought separately. Gonna try to plastic weld it. I had to remove the intake elbow and this was attached and when I removed it it snapped apart.

JB Weld for plastic to the rescue! $7 at Oreillys brother! I did the exact same thing then spray painted it black? You'll never notice the difference!

Glad to hear I'm not alone in this! I was really surprised when the piece pretty much came apart in my hand with very little pressure. I'll be picking up some JB Weld today!
