My son was helping out a friend of ours with their 94 XJ 4.0 (2WD gasp Shocked )they really do exist. They just bought this thing cheap, and didn't know how long it had been since it had it's oil changed, they decided to do a motor flush first. After it was said and done, the valve cover and oil filter housing started leaking. We figure he cleaned all the gunk that was sealing the engine. The valve cover was easy but the oil filter housings not going to be as simple. He took the one off of the 4.0 we have in the shop, and it only has one hole leading from the block side, to the filter side. How is this possible? I thought it was out w/the bad oil in w/the good oil. Or has jeep found out some alien technology that beams it back in. Yea I know when flying pig. The only parts he has found is a 'kit' which seems to have everything including the housing and maybe a kitchen sink. Dont they just sell an O-ring kit w/o going to Jeep for it? Like say from NAPA? Its sunday, and NAPA isnt open, and the other know nothing places haven't a clue as to what we are asking.

Thanks....and remember If it aint a Jeep, It's JUNK.
