I went to autozone and O'Reillys to get BOV gasket and they can't seem to find it and I don't know where else to go. Does anyone know the part number to the gaskets for the BOV?

If you look up a first-gen Eclipse on the parts system O'Reilly's uses, you can find a turbo gasket set. It's a fel-pro set, includes about a dozen different gaskets. I'm not positive, but I think that set includes the BOV gasket. It's somewhere between $20 and $25. Not sure about your local store, but if you order one through mine, if it doesn't have what you need me or my associates will take it back. lol

Cut your own. Use scissors for the outter edge and a handheld hole punch to make the holes for the bolt. You can also drill out the material with the proper sized drill bit against a board to make a clean exact hole.

Yes and no.

Don't try and explain it, they are all morons with a single digit IQ.

Ya, most autoparts store employees aren't very good at finding what you want. It took me a week to get the correct axle seal. Not completely the store's fault since Timken had it wrong in their book. I finally found it online and ordered it in the store. It came in and was wrong, but the seal dimensions were way off from what Timkin said it show be. I crossed the number and found out it was misboxed seal. I took it to the store and they were confused. They kept saying "how do you know it is misboxed" and they didn't want to order another one. They finally gave in and reorded it. This time it was right. It pays to look up parts for yourself on the manufacturer's site before you go in. In my case they were the wrong ones. You can't win them all.

I only use indian head gasket sealer on things like the oil pump and oil filter housing, for the BOV gasket just plane black permatex RTV will work. I have Bov gaskets here but just use rtv instead.
