    Can anyone help me identify this part please!

    Hi peeps,

    After my car came back from a service (Astra Gsi Turbo) i noticed that it would idle at about 1krpm then drop to like 900 for a second like an occasional blipping, whilst installing my tophat i noticed the attached part below had been broken off, it connects to the rocker cover next the crankcase breather, has a 1 way symbol on it and if you put your finger over it there is a vacuum, i didnt know if this was affecting my idle, i need to replace it anyway.



    Cheers for replies

    Nick

    dont bother with a one from Vauxhall!!!

    they are in the region of £20 each

    one way valve from Halfords in the screen wash section is about £1.50 and is a direct fit

    job done
