This new part is NOT listed on My dealer does not have a listing for this new PN. I looked it up on several parts websites through (awesome website) and the new tube is classified as a cold climate dipstick tube and many have it in stock. I am replacing my CCV system with a regular design not cold weather design CCV. My question is will the new so called "cold climate" dipstick tube adapt and fit with the regular CCV hose system?
Please read the suggested threads and add value, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person stands on your shoulders.
