Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee
My 2001 GC Laredo is leaking oil, it has smoke and burned oil smell. Most likely the valve cover gasket or rear seal. What is involved in the repair of each and a ballpark estimate of repair cost.
Valve cover gasket is like $20 and a do it yourself job, just buy a manual like a chiltons from an auto parts store. if it was valve cover, the smoke would be coming from engine, not tailpipe.
rear seal is in between engine and tranny, this would cause oil to leak on ground, but not to burn
if smoke is coming from tailpipe, your piston rings might be going bad. that is an expensive repair, but switching to synthetic oil may give you several more years of life out of the piston rings, synthetic oil has a way of soaking into bad piston rings and temporarily making them like new again, unless they are already too far gone.
