Default HELP! Changing valvecover gasket and broke pcv elbow

I broke both of them and trying to get them out I took the metal triangle bracket off under the valve cover and ruined that gasket!! Is this something sold at auto zone?? If so, what is it called so I can describe it to the counter person?? Its a 91 4.0

I didn't have any luck getting one at the parts store. Dealer usually has them though and they are pretty cheap (under $20). The rear one is the ccv tube. Front one just vents to the air filter box. Get new grommets for the valve cover and the replacement parts.

You can get all the CCV parts (tubes going into the front and rear of valve cover) for around $32 at a dealer.

Valve cover gasket is available anywhere.

Remove the valve cover, clean it thoroughly, reinstall with new gasket, install new CCV hardware and you should be good to go..............

I remember seeing another thread with a person who had a 91 Cherokee and described having to twist the valve 90 degrees in order to pull it out, only way to confirm is to check your valve cover and see if it has the slots.

buy that ebay pack its got both valves and all new hoses.
everything you need except that gasket that goes on the metal triangle inside the valve cover.
Good luck finding that triangle gasket, I'm not sure what its called but I know what you are talking about.
I just did my vc and broke the pcv/ccv valves a few weeks ago as well.

I bought that ebay pack and a felpro vc gasket and no more leaky
