Really... Maybe it's just my big hands, but by the time I got all the scraping and cleaning done and had the new stat in, my filter had been mangled & torn. Was your filter indeed still in place? Here's what they look like,

Also:

UPDATE
Rock Auto called me an hour ago and told me that their inventory records were wrong, and the warehouse that sells these filters individually was out... They may get more in a month, but in the meantime I had to order via another supplier that only sells the GM bags of 10. When they get here I'll see what I have around for envelopes, and offer the leftovers to the group.

My BCS filter has been gone for over 100k miles. If you come across an extra, maybe help me out?

Sure. After they get here, about a week, I'll keep 2 or 3 and list the extras in the For Sale section and notify this thread as well. If I have light enough padded envelopes (or tiny boxes?) I should be able to send 'em out for just a couple bucks each.

I guess you don't live in a dusty area... You've never had to replace the the BCS or the BBV even running without the filter?

I'll be busy for a few hours... My Hogan DP just arrived!

I'll have to inspect, don't recall if the filter's there or not. I checked the AC Delco site, and it appears they can be directly ordered singly, but of course the shipping would likely be $7-$10...

I'd probably take one also if you end up with spares. If it goes where I'm assuming it does, mine is also missing.

Check.

On the driver's (or stat) side of the solenoid, there are 2 nipples, 1 with a hose and one that should have the filter. If it's not there the clip that holds it probably is - I couldn't get mine off over the barb...
Of course, you have to pull the engine cover to see it. That's another little annoyance that I changed right away - I replaced the factory nut with a Dorman black plastic air cleaner wingnut that looks good with the ribbing on the top of the cover.

No worries, my cover hasn't been ON in 2 years. smile

Yep, the retainer is still on the nipple.

Mark, I also found them, thru Amazon.com, and ordered 10 last week. They are shipping today. Any updates on your order status?

Yes, I got them Monday (or possibly Tuesday... I've been sick as a dog since Saturday.) I haven't gone through my piles of eBay packaging for padded envelopes yet, but I did take a picture of the box to share the strange part number.

As it is easy to tear one while trying to put it on, I figured I'd put 2 in each envelope and send them out for $3, with postage. I was going to send PM's to the 3 of you, and make up the packages over the weekend. I guess I should still send PMs to the other two...

I'm surprised it actually has a GM # on the box. I tried my local dealer last week and no such part is in their parts breakdowns, though they know what it is. I figured I'd put some extras on the shelf and ordered myself. I'll bet you can get rid of your extras. Mine are coming from AC-Direct.com, is that who your supplier was? Oh nevermind, you said it was RockAuto....

Yes, it has a GM number, but GM hasn't used 6-digit numbers in 40 years... confused

That's why they can't find the damned thing. Plus, I believe my Chevy guy said that he finally found them listed as "EGR valve filters". rolleyes
