Anyone know if you can just pull the two elbows off? I tried, and it seems like I'm going to break something they are so tight.

you can pull of the elbows - the front one is the same size diameter as the outside the rear one has a pinhole sized hole at the connection to the valve cover - when this pin hole gets clogged the vacum from your air filter starts to pull oil from the valve cover rather than the rear one evening the pressure between the valve cover and intake manifold - I had the same problem with my 95 ZJ 4.0L - just popped the rear elbow off - cleaned it out and replaced the rubber grommet and plastic hose connection (it desintigrated on me) and it solved the problem.

The elbows may also break when you try to take them out. They press pretty tightly into the grommets and they will become brittle over time. I was unable to take mine out without breaking them.

Here's the Catch 22 that I ran into: I wanted to remove the valve cover before I tried to remove the elbows, so that if they broke, plastic wouldn't get into the valve train. Except the proximity of the rear elbow to the cowl didn't allow me to lift the valve cover over the rockers far enough to get the valve cover off.

Now that's funny Stop using your brain and get a hammer man! You smash that freakin thing then remove the valve cover and spend the rest of the afternoon cleaning all of the bits out!!!

Go to a dealer, they can look it up. This thread has now been reincarnated twice.

Yup..thanks for this thread. my rear tube broke off at the valve cover this weekend when I attempted to clean it.

For a 1993 ZJ, as of Nov 2006, the front tube is $12 and the rear tube is $16 from my local dealer. I am picking them up today.

Thatís because every 4L engine on a ZJ, will dump oil on top of the air filter at some point in time. Same thing with the oil pressure sender. Itís garbage and will leak. Both the CCV valve and the oil pressure transducer should be on the 100,000 mile maintenance schedule. (as a replacement part)

My ZJ has 208K on it...I bought it with 191K on it. The previous owner was not what I'd call a 'regular maintenance' type of guy. I am finding all kinds of goodies
Also on the list:
rear main seal
rear wheel bearings
getting the play out of the steering

Was going to send you a link to this site, knowing how busy you are work, and the limited time you have to surf the net.

See ya tonight, we'll get some of your issues sorted out.

Wonder if there any "Anarchists" on this board, Hike *****es!

Agree, the folks on this site know their Jeeps, most have "been there, done that, have the t-shirts and coffee mugs".

I had the "Jeep Forum Supporter Thingie" applied shortly after making the payment. Perhaps you made the wrong person $25 richer...
