my_yj rj ton is right it should go into your air cleaner housing their should be two pcv valves on the valve cover one sucks and one blows you might have to replace it if it's sucking oil

rj_ton I would think that would go into your air cleaner housing

raymond hall just a pure guess, maybe had alot of blow-by plugging air filter with oil. the paint can maybe a makeshift catch tank like on race cars?

bradp337 nope, it is actually a paint can. The valve cover just has a 90 degree elbow running to a piece of rubber hose that goes into a hole cut into the top of the paint can.

newbie here...engine question

I just got a 1988 yj and was doing a tune up for the first time when i noticed that the valve cover has a vent that comes out and runs into a paint can that is mounted on the inside of the driver side fender. I just want to know what the vent is and where is the hose supposed to go? Can anyone help me out with this?
