Heating coolant system part broke

This piece broke while I was removing my valve cover. Can anyone tell me what it's called so i can go and buy a replacement? I have a 96 Cherokee sport with the inline 6.

Is that on the right side of the engine (viewed from drivers seat) by the distributor? Should be 2 hoses going to the firewall head through this 'cool part' back to the thermostat housing area?

Heater control valve. '96 was a one year type I believe, check junkyards.

Do yourself a favor and get rid of it. Splice the hose together and plug the vacuum line. It is totally unnecessary and as you know, a potential for catastrophic coolant loss.

Thanks all. It was the heater control valve. I picked one up from a dealership the completely reasonable price of 74 usd.

Reasonable price of 74 bucks!? Jeeze. I have some nuts and bolts for sale, only used once - one dollar a pop!

Okay, no more poking fun. Glad you got the Jeep fixed man - happy wheeling!

Yeah jeep is apparently extremely proud of that part. The one I had was original to the car so I guess it's worth it...
