HI Everyone,

Can someone please name this part? It has coolant running through it. The plastic piece broke off inside of the hose and coolant went everywhere. Pic attached!

Yeah, Rock Auto says it's a Heater Valve, but yeah it diverts the coolant away from the heater core... So diverter valve. GM catalog says it's a "valve, wat bypass".

Always be careful to use the the FULL name, and check the proper spelling - Leroy Preston Goode.

In doing so it makes it more definitive, which can be important in situations such as this where Leroy commits suicide, or tries to kidnap the Queen, or rob a bank, or something.
