How do I get the damn thing back in?

94 YJ, 4.0L. Took the little plug with the breather that runs from the valve cover to the airbox out of the valve cover and now I can't get the @#$%^ thing back in. Any tricks?

The gasket probably came out with it. Remove the gasket and install it back in the valve cover. Use a little oil to lube up the fitting and press it back in.

Same here. It will be quicker, just take the cover off


My first one snapped when I tried to force it in

Son of a bitch. Will it hurt to plug the hole with something and drive it anyway? If not, what can I use to plug it with? What if I got some cardboard and cut a hole for the breather thingy and then duct taped that to valve cover so the breather tube could still be hooked up?

Just a temporary fix to get it home today. That is pretty hillbilly though.
