Well the jeep was sitting for a few days, just didn't need it. I went to napa but no luck there either, so I ended up going to the dealership. It was like $3 for one of them & $4 for the other. That was for the gasket(seal) and the plastic elbow together. Not to bad to make sure it's right. Also picked up a new air filter and cleaned the crap out of everything! We'll see tomorrow how it goes. Does anyone know, if the oil fill cap seal isn't good, will it affect this issue too. I can't tell for sure if it's leaking a bit. But I wouldn't be surprised.
Thanks again for the help!

Wow, that's the first time I've ever heard of someone actually being able to find those seals and elbow. I'm impressed. Far as I can tell the oil fill cap shouldn't affect it, but some oil fumes or spray could leave some gunk around it. Most guys just get a roll of gasket material and make a new one.
