drive without ccv valve grommets in?
so i just did my valve cover gasket and took off the old grommets and plastic elbows but they all broke, can i just cover them and take a quick drive to the stealership to pick up new ones?? or is this a bad idea

Not a good idea. There is crankcase pressure in the valve cover that has to be released, hence the CCV system. You would probably have oil blow out some where. I had this happen on another vehicle in my youth. I replaced mine a while back and those grommets were a ***** to get out.Broke one of the elbows as well. I got a replacement elbow at Advance Auto. The elbows are different , so make sure you get the right one. I believe they have the grommets as well. Good luck.

If you have access to another vehicle (or someone to give you a lift) that would be the best way to get the parts. If you have no other options duct taping coffee filters, paper dust masks (probably the best option if you have them), or gauze over the holes (don't seal them completely) would probably work for a short trip since it would still allow venting but keep crap from falling in the open holes.
