Step one: Start with pliers and elbow grease. After 15 minutes of pulling go check Wrangler Forum for a better method.How did you do that?
This is on a 2008 JKR 3.8L engine. I tried removing the PCV valve while the engine was cold. Evidently, it's supposed to be easier if the engine is warm and the rubber seal around the PCV valve has had time to soften up a bit. If this ever happens again I'll just remove the valve cover and punch it out from the inside.Wow, way to make this difficult Jeep for us owners that like to wrench on our own vehicles. I have not looked into this PM yet but is this a 3.8 or 3.6?
Manual says to replace the PCV valve at 90,000 miles or 90 months. I just bought the Jeep used and was changing out all the fluids and filters and figured it was getting close to the 90 months so I'd knock it out too. You know whats really funny? The original looked okay but since I had things apart and had already purchased the replacement I figured I'd just do it anyway.Just curious, why were you replacing it in the first place?
Did the same, I had tennis elbow and minimal feeling in hand. I broke lots of stuff for six months till I recovered. Mechanic got one from the dealer came complete with a pcv valve, gasket and bolts. Had a mechanic do it because of arm. I'm sure I got over charged. With a tow was about $400. Probably can do for less than $100 yourself.Sorry for resurrecting an old post but I just broke the cover (screwdriver...) and need to know how to fix or replace the cover.
