Valve cover seals leaking

I have 89 jeep with 4.2 that has a little bit of oil seaping out of pcv, breather, and oil cap grommets. I have checked pcv, it has suction. Breather filter is 1 month old and is soaked in oil now. I have heard that the baffles in these valve covers dont work very well. I have looked for new valve covers and is very expensive (over $140). I am not even sure that the new valve cover would solve the problem. Any ideas?

You can clean the baffles. Just get gasket material to make your own. I called three different parts stores and no one makes that gasket. Hell Napa didn't even know what I was talking about. Get yourself a blue fel pro rubber gasket too while you're at it.

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

Thanks for the reply. I have the felpro valve cover gasket. I had to change out the grommets for the pcv and breather.
