I couldn't find it either. I had to go with Fram BA6592. Also try Purolator B23165.

Purolator B23165

I just installed the Purolator B23165 filter on my 94 Caprice wagon. Fits perfectly without any tape or other sealant.

Post Cross Reference

The easiest way to look it up with a parts store is by application. Ask for a breather filter for a 1988 Ford Tempo.

From what I can figure, this breather filter was used on all the Ford 2.3L 4 cylinders of this vintage. The 1988 Tempo is right in the middle of the age range for this engine, and was only available with the 2.3L in 1988. This helps cut down on screw ups at the parts counter.

Here are some of the part numbers that work:

AC Delco: FB131
Baldwin: SA4137
Deutsch: BF412
Motorcraft: FA 1118
Purolator: B23165
WIX: 66501

Here is what the current Fram packaging looks like. Also some size pix with a quarter for reference.

I have tried the BF412 and found it helped a little but it still is only a baffle system that allows dirty vapors to get in the throttle body. Going to an actual filter worked great, except it will need to be changed from time to time. You can see what I did on my web page. http://www.1finecaprice.com/engine.htm

the LS guys have the same problem and now there are various catch can designs sold to trap pcv oil.
I have a Norris catch can on my camaro with a petcock on the bottom, it traps about an ounce of oil every month or two.
I plan to buy another and retrofit it to the imp, same size hose I think so just have to determine where to mount it.

I use the 88 Ford Tempo breather filter, PLUS a NAPA 3299 fuel filter on the line between the throttle body and the valvecover.
I ALSO use another NAPA 3299 fuel filter on the line between the crankcase and the inlet manifold.
Change both every 6 months.
No motor oil in the upper half of my engine, thank you very much

Very nice set up. Anything done to keep the top clean will pay off in the long run. I went with the filter after the first time I had to clean the TB. Never had to clean the intake manifold after that.
