    Default CCV Removal

    I am trying to find out if anyone knows how to go about removing the CCV or whatever the hell the rear most elbow on the valve cover is that connects to the vacuum line on the intake. I accidently broke it the other day trying to remove the broke oil fill cap I inherited when I purchased my 1998 Cherokee, and now I am trying to figure out how to remove the rest of it, as well as removing a good one from a Jeep in the JY so I can replace it, as apparently it can't be purchased through local auto parts stores.... Every time I try to grab it with pliers or even my hand, it like breaks apart, as I guess it has gotten brittle over the years. If there is a way to remove this elbow without ruining the gasket or whatever you want to call it that goes around it in between it and the valve cover that would be great...

    Oh yeah and in case it matters it is on a 4.0.... Also if anyone knows what the part number might be through advance or one of the other auto parts stores that would be cool too...

    This kit is for an earlier model, but it comes with the elbow connectors that should fit yours. As for the removal, if you haven't yet, pick up a Chilton or Haynes repair manual. They have just about everything in there, and they pay themselves off over time.

    It's going to fall apart when you pull it out. You'll need to get a new system to replace it with. Any pcv/ccv system you pull out of a used jeep is going to turn into numerous pieces.

    New 4.0 don't have a PCV valve, just the elbow and tube.

    Found that out trying to but one for my '99 XJ

    As for the cap, check Stu's advice:http://www.stu-offroad.com/engine/oi...ilchange-3.htm

    Actually, anyone with a newer Jeep should have his whole site index marked, lots of great info:http://www.stu-offroad.com/siteindex.asp

    Correct... newer 4.0's have a ccv system vice the pcv system. The ccv system should really require little maintenance unless you start noticing oil in the intake.
