Hi
Last couple of times out, I`ve heard what can only be described as a PHUT sound, then oil spillage down left side of engine, narrowed it down to breathers needing cleaning, can see what I think are breather tubes.
One joint was pulled out a while ago, but I replaced it & its been fine till now.
Got a couple of manuals but cant identify, properly, what the plastic thingy, LOL, is that tubes run in & out of on left side of engine, does the top come off? what do I clean tubes with?
Sorry to sound dim, but I don`t want to screw up.


1996 2.5D turbo Cherokee.


Any suggestions gratefully received


Peter.

I'm posting these for Peter! It is a right hand drive Jeep. I'm not exactly sure what it is, I guess it's some kind of oil breather. Does anyone else know?

If it goes to the air cleaner it is most likely for crankcase ventilation. and should be a one way valve.
