Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2 Answers

Oil leakage Oil is leaking all over valve cover and the tube from the valve cover to the air cleaner housing is kinked and blocked. The small tube in the rear of the valve cover is broken too. Would repairing those lines stop the oil from blowing out the top of the engine? I never worked on a Jeep Cherokee until today.

I didn't say the oil was coming from any hose, but that the breather hose was blocked and kinked.   Oil is pooled on the top of the intake, but I think it may be just being blown out of the oil filler hole.   The CCV line is broken at the elbow atop the cover too.   One more line is broken which I haven't yet identified, and another line on the opposite side of the engine was disconnected.  
Common sense tells me this oil leak should stop once the hoses are repaired, but I was just inquiring to see if this rang any bells.   However after studying the information available online, I do have concern that there may be more leaking coming from the rear main oil seal.   I haven't gotten that far yet.  
Thanks for your comment.

You have an open hose from valve cover to no where which oil is coming out of....hmmmm, I would think yes..... If you still have a problem with oil blowing out of motor after those are fixed, sounds like you may have back pressure.

How to replacewater pump housing on 2002 cadillac devile dhs


If the housing is leaking, you can replace the gasket but you need to remove upper filler panel, air cleaner assembly, secondary air injection control valve, oil level indicator tube nut, water pump belt shield, the belt, the radiator hose at housing and then the cover.
If you need to replace the water pump, not easy as you need a special tool to remove and insert the pump.

My 02 galant runs rough when put in gear but in idle runs okay it also surges up and down replaced the plug wires


Okay, lets start with the oil you found on spark plugs when you were replacing them. this oil is coming from the valve cover tube hole area, notice the plugs go into the holes in the valve cover, there is a gasket the goes around the top of the tubes and when it leaks it goes into spark plug hole, the valve cover needs replacing .
this will cause rough idle and running problems, after replacing valve cover gasket the holes must be cleaned, using crab cleaner, spray into holes and use air to blow out . this may need to be done a few times to get oil out .
after oil is removed . then remove spark plugs and wipe them clean.
The next step is to find the air (vacuum leak) , you said you hear it around intake tube. check for cracks or broken vacuum line. this leak will cause idle problems and driving problems,

Oil shoot out through air filter


Hi,
That means your engine already have big blowback, air from engine crankshaft goes out into the engine oil cover and into the pcv valve to the air cleaner.
It is cause by the compression leakage from piston rings.
Better check and clean the PCV first or buy a new one if it is fully blocked. Located from the engine oil cover, follow the hose on top, hose goes into PCV and into air cleaner.

Hope that helps you out!

1992 ford f150 302 engine. Oil is leaking in to air filter which means it is coming from the air intake from the engine. Air filter is soaked and dripping to the ground. Any ideas on what is might be??


It is more likely that the oil is coming into the air cleaner by way of the CrankCase Vent.
There should be a tube that goes from one of the Valve Covers directly to the Air Cleaner.

Inside the AirCleaner Housing, there is the Air Filter, but there should also be a much smaller filter, sort of held in a little box, where the tube from the valve cover comes in.

This condition usually manifests when the vehicle has very high miles. It is caused by excessive BlowBy in the cylinders to the CrankCase. It will help to Change the Positive CrankCase Ventilation Valve. If it is plugged, it will make the situation worse. So, get a new PVC valve, and that is about all you can do, except to keep the air cleaner new, and the oil topped off.

Oil leaking from above engine. what could it be?


someone installed an aftermarket oil cooler on the bottom of the hood and it has sprung a leak. that is the only way i could see that oil would be coming from above the engine. of course you could have oil leaking from old valve cover gaskets on the top of the block. you could also have a crankcase pressure problem and oil is accumulating in the air cleaner via the breather tube on the top of the engine.

Yeah,,your engine is showing signs of wear, if it blows a lot of oil out the back end after sitting at a light or stop sign,,then that is a sure indicator of Valve seals needing replacement,,,but it also sounds like your engine is worn out Piston Rings and all.
You could try a product which is used on just about every drag racing strip,,it's called Lucas Oil treatment,,,i don't promise that it will solve all your problems,,,but if it don't help,,it sure wont hurt.

Best of luck to ya.
