Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee
What is the little hose called that runs into just below the oil fill cap called? Mine has a hole in it and I would like to replace it. It blows air out when engine is running.
This is usually part of the emission control system that prevents crankcase oil vapors from venting to the atmosphere. Any decent auto parts store should have a computer breakdown of the various systems especially any engine components, and especially anything having to do with emission control. Arrive with a decent description of what you are looking for, the year of the vehicle, engine model type, A/C or not, and they can help you. It is probably a certain length and size of standard hose that they stock by the roll and just sell it to you by the foot. Shouldn't have any special fittings as it usually just a slip-fit onto fittings near the cap and also somewhere on one of the systems of the engine. If it is BLOWING, and not a vacuum leak, this is the supply hose to the upper part of the engine for the positive crank case ventilation system. If this has helped, please rate it accordingly. Good luck.
