Also, could not having the oil filler neck on the valve cover cause performance issues? Since this is the reason why i need the Cover, the battery clamp broke and the battery fell over and snapped the oil filler neck, and right now i have a sock over the hole

It should be sealed off for the PCV to work properly. It can cause a vacuum leak that way too. I'm not sure which valve covers will work. On the Ford site, they show several and replaced by, on the lising. Here's one you can check. Ford Parts - Genuine OEM Ford Auto Parts at FordPartsGiant That may help to see what others will work.

Re: 98 f150 valve cover question

ok kinda makes sense... cuz it seems at night when its very cold it just doesnt wanna run.... I wonder if there is a way to just rig something up with a rubber piece for awhile until i can get some extra cash...

Guess you really got to play to play...

thanks for your advice

I just bought a rubber expansion plug for it and it works so far.. But my friends dad is saying I should drill a hole through it and make it like a breather or something... Should I do that or will it work without harm if I don't drill a hole?
