Good idea, I'll grab a handful of them. They probably don't cost much.

It almost looks like this one was cut a bunch of times with a knife until it made a hole. Probably not the case though.

Is that a 360 under all that dirt ? For goodness sake man , get that machine to a pressure washer

Simple fix is a pc of vacum hose , plugged off with a bolt . Properly , these little end tabs can be found at most any auto parts store , as I'm sure , Brian found out by now .

That must have been very hard on fuel Brian , considering it looks like it's been like that for a while ?

That's Moab dirt, it stays forever.

Yep it was a very easy fix, brought the old plug into autozone and bought a little pack of them that were the same size. Took 1 minute to put the new one back on.

We'll see if I notice any change in gas mileage. That and the bad O2 censor couldn't have been helping at all.

If I ever make to the Moab , I won't wash if off either

My last 1000K trip I got 14 mpg , that was 80% hwy at 80mph and the rest touring in the mountains . Considering my heavy foot , thats not bad . I'm sure I could have drove 60 and got close to 18-20 average for the trip , but wheres the fun in that . My ZJ loves the hwy
