This would be for a 4.5 L FWD sedan. I see AC Delco and other parts #s listed. Have there been any results?

A dealer is the only place you'll find a new one. That is if they haven't discontinued them.

Statech- thanks but, no, it is not the right part. What I'm looking for has a whole lot of ports on it, is black, looks like some sort of spaceship, more cylindrical or tube-like than square, . Looking for used or prefferably new. Not even Cadillacs Only has one. GM part 17090215, AC Delco #214-123 SMP #DV84

You can try calling one of those ac delco stores I have been putting those part numbers into the websites that sell ac delco parts and it comes up as part not found. Try this go to www. Parts. Com and get the phone number off the website give them a call and see what they can find for you. They sell factory parts for all different kinds of makes. There a parts locator I have bought parts from them before they found the parts I was looking for. Let me know what you find.

This is a discontinued AC Delco part, also discontinued by SMP, and has been called 'the holy grail' of Caddy parts by noneother than Cadillacs Only in CA.I found one place that says they have 3 of them, but they are unable to find them in their 45,000 square foot warehouse amongst their 32,000 parts bins.I even told them that I would buy all three. Whether they are looking for them, they didn't sound too enthusiastic even though I offered them extra money to look.
