    Default PCV Valve

    Should there be a PCV valve in this spot? Right now there is just a hose connected to another hose. It's a 1996 with 4.0.

    That will work, and probably better than stock. There is no valve there, just a plastic fitting that tends to gum up sometimes

    Cool, my Chilton manual is on the way along with a valve cover gasket to fix the leak. Figured while I had it off I'd fix anything up top. Any clue what that red wire is? Seems to run from the battery to the fuse box?

    Not a clue. That wire is non standard as far as I can tell. If is was factory it would not be coming off there. I have one like that that dead ends with a plug, but it comes off a single terminal

    Here's a link to a thread from when I changed my "valve cover elbow" it has the part # somewhere in there.

    As to the wire. Pull the fuse and see what shuts off.
    It might be to an accessory the previous owner installed and removed before selling.
    One more part and I'll have a new Jeep

    Might put an elbow fitting on that hose.... and agree with stray wire, it's aftermarket, probably for some lights or something the previous owner had but took off.
