Sounds like a broken oil ring. As far as the engine stalling, if your really low on oil the motor will shut down so as not to damage any bearings and other internal parts. Does the engine seem to be turning over faster and taking longer to start than usual and take a little longer to stop when you turn the engine off. If so you could have an issue with the compression rings in one or more cylinders. Do a compression test. If the #s are near where they should be it's likley oil rings. If the #s are low it's likley the compression rings. Either way if its one of those issues you'll need to overhaul your engine
I decided to finish what I started. My liftgate was starting to have issues on the passenger side because the ball stud was pushing the sheet metal out of whack and starting to face the front of my XJ.
I drilled several holes next to the stud, next to the gap that was created by the ball stud bending the metal. I was able to get a screw driver in there and I was able to pry out the stud and nut. I hammered the metal flat and in to allow clearance for the nut when I reinstalled it. I also painted the exposed metal for protection.
I bought some medium thick flat strap from Home Depot and cut a 3.5 inch piece off of it. The old ball stud is fairly soft metal. Use a Torx bit or put Vise Grips on the stud shoulder that butts up against the mounting metal face. I then drilled a hole for the stud and bolted it into the new piece and painted it.
I stuck it up where I wanted it and marked where I wanted the Rivet holes. You really only need holes on the edge that faces the lifgate because there is always forward preasure on the plate. Drilled the holes in the plate off of the XJ on top of a piece of wood, then held the plate back up where I wanted to mount it and drilled a hole into my XJ's sheet metal, popped in a rivet and it held it in place while did the other 2 holes. I did the drivers side plate 4 years ago and it is still solid as a rock and is also when I replaced the struts I bought at Autozone. They are very good quality, they have held up in temps of -30 to temps of +118. It raises all by itself and actually has a lot of tension on it when you close it, they are very strong struts.
97 is on the right side passenger kick panel. Look there and also under dash on drivers side. There is a second set of "main" fuses under the hood in the power distribution center near the battery. The fastest and easiest way to check them is to use a test light and probe both end openings of each fuse with the key in the"on"position. All fuses should have power at both ends except for the light fuse which is only hot with the lights on.
