Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

OIL LEAKING COMING OUT OF DIP STICK HOLE

OCCURS AFTER RUNNING/DRIVING MORE THAN 1/2 HOUR (SEEMS LIKE IT THE MOTOR MUST BE HOT FOR THE LEAK TO START) I FIRST NOTICED THE SMELL OF BURNING OIL WHEN I PARKED IT AFTER ABOUT A 1.5 HOUR TRIP. I LOOKED UNDER THE HOOD & COULD SEE OIL AROUND THE OIL DIP STICK HOLE AREA BY THE OIL FILTER.iT'S NOT LEAKING AROUND THE FILTER LIKE I ORIGINALLY SUSPECTED.

    THE OIL LEVEL IS RIGHT ON THE FULL MARK (6QT). I CHANGE THE OIL & FILTER 2 WEEKS AGO (AFTER NOTICING THE LEAK)

Sounds like you engine cant vent so its using the weakest point the dipstick, check your engines breathing system and the pcv valve it might be blocked, find it connected to the air filter housing with a hose , it should rattle when you shake it if not replace it.

Oil backing up through the hole where the old dipstick goes. some kind of pressure problem


all engines burn oil, ALL!
and if you dive faster, it burns more. (rate)
you did not state the rate, here in USA we do
quarts per mile (liters are same )
1 qt/ 3000 miles is norm.
but if you dont service a vehicle , for sure every 60miles.
100km. the PCV valve will clog and the crankcase will go over
pressure, and the car will leak and burn more oil.
the dip stick hole must **** not blow.
if it dont **** , running, the PCV is DEAD !

I have a 1984 ford f150, I starts a runs until I come to a stop then It just shuts off...Whats wrong? I also have low oil pressure, and my dip stick for my oil looks kinda milky.


The problem you have is a cracked block. This allows water to get into your oil, and that causes the milky appearance. As you might imagine, this is not a good thing. You can try the block seal, but, there are no guarantees. Good luck. Oh, and by the way, it has nothing to do with the dip stick, just the water and oil failing to mix.

My car overheats very easy.i can drive 1 exit on the highway and the temp goes up very fast. i dont know what it could be. there is always fluid in the reserve area and doesnt seem to be getting low or im...


COULD BE THERMOSTAT IF TOP RADIATOR HOSE IS NOT HOT AND BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSE GOING TO WATER PUMP IS HOT THE THERMOSTAT STICKING PARTIALLY CLOSE.IF TOP HOSE IS HOT THE RADIATOR,ENGINE BLOCK HEATER CORE NEED FLUSHING OUT.IF WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE LEAKING REPLACE WATER PUMP, FAULTY WATER PUMP WILL CAUSE ENGINE TO OVER HEAT.REPLACE RADIATOR CAP MAKE SURE YOU HAVE 50 / 50 MIX SOLUTION ANTIFREEZE AND WATER IN COOLANT SYSTEM. IF ALL LOOKS GOOD CHECK ENGINE OIL ON DIP STICK, IF OIL IN DIP STICK LOOK LIKE MILKSHAKE YOU HAVE BLOWED HEAD GASKET THAT WILL CAUSE ENGINE OVERHEATING WHILE DRIVING CAR IN SHORT DISTANCE AND ENGINE OVERHEATING.

I have a 1998 Saturn. The reservoir often leaks water/antifreeze and light comes on to indicate. I have had water pump as well as reservoir replaced. Doesn't leak everday but still leaks. WHat is this?...


you need to find that leak, is the leak visible? if its not from radiator or the reservoir, the only other place I could think you can lose water is the head gasket. It happens to high miles and hard driver. 100k miles would likely be a head gasket. Leaking head gasket will also cause the engine temperature to rise and run super hot. antifreeze will leak through the head gasket down to your oil pan mixing oil and water. Check your oil by pulling the dip stick and see if you have oil mix with water; it will have a slimy looking colors, oil is light color and it should never be black. if it black than change your oil and inspect it afterward when the car has been running for while. when engine really hot cause the heat to effect the starter not to engage or start or engine is too hot to run. repairing head gasket could run anywere from 500-800 bucks.

My 94 929 mazda won't start


You probably have a blown head gasket, not allowing you to get enough compression built to start the engine.

Rent a compression tester from AutoZone (You get your money back when you take it back) and use it. If the compression on each cylinder is less than 100 PSI, you've got some issues. The cylinders should also be somewhat balanced.

98 Subaru leaking oil


Oil leak will not change run temp but can cause a fire.
The smoke is the oil burning on the engine. The 1st thing you need to do is clean the oil off the engine.
Next top oil off to the full line on the dip stick.Now start the engine hold idle up to around 1600 rpm for 1 to 2 minutes keep engine run and look for the oil leak. Don't get caught in any moving parts and things will be hot so be careful. Most likely from your valve cover.

Oil light comes on but still can drive


oil might be low. check the dip stick under the hood and see if it's in the lines. if is between the lines go to an auto parts store and most will check with a code reader for free for you.
