Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

I think that your oil trap "plugs into" a hole in the side of the block ? If that is true, and you receive the matching part, there should be no issues - so did your trap break off a fitting, or did you receive a miss-matched hose?

I linked to a "kit" for the newer style PCV system that your car should have, you can search through the part numbers that it has and be sure your new hose is a match for one of those parts.

BUT the bad news is that it is really hard to get the old oil trap out and new one in. If it were me, I would make sure that your care really needs a new one - maybe just replace the O-ring on the old one and re-install it. On the other hand, if there is a broken fitting on the old trap that prevents your new hose from attaching, then you may have no choice. getting a new trap in is similar in difficulty to an alternator swap - I have a trap for the 2006's I maintain that is still siting on the shelf, because I determined (thankfully !) that the vacuum leak I had been chasing was actually the dipstick O-ring.

Hope this helps !
