Default Help with PCV O - rings please!!!!

I changed the UIM on my daughter'* Buick LeSabre and neglected to transfer the O-ring(*) on the PCV valve. Now it smokes on start-up and there is considerable suction when I try to remove the oil cap with the engine running. Where can I get an O-ring and what size do I get? If I tell a parts store that I need this, will they have any idea what I need?

I'm desperate. I need to fix this today while my 16 year old daughter is driving my modded GTP.

Thanks,

Dean

I found Harbor Freight has an o-ring kit. Usually under $10 if you have one local..you are set. Otherwise. Head for Napa. They have all kinds of stuff that they don't tell you about...it'* hidden under the counter etc.
