Question EGR? Filter

When changing the air filter on my 2005 PT Cruiser (non-turbo), I saw a small sponge-like filter on the left side of the chamber (picture attached). It looked pretty well-used (55,000 miles in six years), so I decided to replace it also.

The guy at the auto parts store couldn't find it in his catalog, but he called it an EGR filter.

Is that the proper termionology for this part?

Thanks

New on this forum (I think - couldn't log in with what I thought was my login - but it's been a while and that could have been another forum). Anyhow, this one looks good!

Not sure what it's called (crankcase filter maybe) but your sponge in the picture doesn't look that bad. It's just there to catch some extra oil that you usually find on the Turbo models. On the non-turbo cars the sponge doesn't soak up that much. Any old piece of sponge laying around the house will do. No special piece is needed.

On the Turbo models, so much oil is caught by that sponge that most owners have put in a catch can to collect the oil.

Here's a HOW TO link made by FRAM filters that tells a little more about it.

Thanks. I put a "universal" sponge in, folded it to size - think I'll go ahead and put the stock one back, though.

I've been browsing this forum - looks like you guys have it all to0gether!
