Take it apart and look for an O-ring or gasket... There is no pressure there with the engine off so you won't lose any fuel really.

Just called the 2 local JY's that keep XJ's around and neither have them..:( Gotta call more and see if I can find one...this sucks..apparently you can't buy just the orings..
Ya it usually works out that way for these jeeps, you need to buy the whole assembly:brickwall:

hmm well I take that back factory parts manual shows a repair package..wonder if a local parts shop will have em..
I would give em a call or better yet look on their website and search for the part that you need.

yeah called all the local parts shops and the o-ring repair kit is a dealer only item, and the dealer of course doesn't stock em and has to order them on a 3-4 business order and a new one costs around $70...the repair kit I can swing but can't swing a new one till payday..this plain sucks..I really need to get a spare car to have around..

I have an Oreiley's, Advanced Auto and Autozone about 2 miles fromt he house..:)

My question is would it be benificial to just replace the whole thing? and having a spare would be nice..seems I am collecting a few spare parts...already have a spare cps I keep in the jeep, along with a belt, upper and lower rad hose, tie rod assembly, draglink assembly and a few other minor stuff..:) Oh and the fix all duck tape and rtv..:)I remember rtving a rad hosing and duck taping it to get my but home once..

Yeah fix it with a new one. No use in taking chances with used parts.

I think you have answered your own question. Of course it is good to have spares. If not for you then to help a fellow Jeeper to get his junk home from the trail.
