They sure do. I bought one when my dad over-tightened the bleeder screw (aka filter plug). It was hell finding it. I had to drive 100 miles to South Pointe GM in Tulsa, OK. for it on a Saturday. $15 piece of plastic!

I may have found one closer but it was Saturday. Not many of the parts departments were open. I was also going that way for a funeral i just had to leave way earlier and make a detour

Is this an OEM size?

I've use my original plastic bleeder for 4.5 years, and if installed with care, it'll last a long time.
Modified, Is this part a direct replacement for the plastic one installed by GM or is it an oversized screw to allow for stripped or damaged metal threads on the body? I wasn't aware it was 10mm!

This is an exact replacement 10mm, directly from the manufacturer, Racor.

Yeah, but replacing a fuel filter isn't rocket science.

Paying top dollar for services doesn't guarentee a job well done. I give you my local dealer as a prime example to prove my point!:rant:
