from what you say-- you put in 4.5 litres of oil and it is just over 1/2 but you took out 7 litres , that would be just about right as the other 2.5 litres should make it full on the dip stick
there would be a problem if you took out 10 litres of oil but 6 litres filled it to the full line on the dipstick
Generally in the 5 to 6 litre (quarts) range. Put in 4 litres and check on dip stick. Add remainder half a litre at a time checking the dip each time. The volume of oil required to be added to go from "MIN" mark on the dip stick to "MAX" is just half a litre.
do not start vehicle ,drop the sump and clean it out with caustic ,also the oil pump pick up pipe ,then put the oil back in and start ,if ok then put half a litre of diesel into the oil and 3 good squirts of fairy liquid,then run engine for a week and change the oil again,use a cheap diesel /petrol oil from the supermarket ,not that fancy rip off synthetic long life ****.change oil every 6000 miles with a oil filter every third oil change
Go straight to your local transmission repair centre, they will be able to diagnose the fault and repair it for you. Also check your transmission oil, Engine running at normal working temp, in park (P) remove dipstick, on your left at the back towards the bulkhead. check level if low top up only half a litre at a time. if low put in half a litre of the correct fluid(available at your jeep dealer) put foot on the brake and put into reverse (R) then put into drive (D) put back into P and recheck if still low add another half litre and repeat process. When level is correct test drive, if all is ok, take to transmission shop to find the leak. repair and all will be well. Hope this helps.
Just drain the oil, refill, and I think I'd run it to warm it up fully AFTER draining and refiling, and drain and refill again. You shouldn't drive it w/ gasoline in the oil, as it will thin out the oil and it won't lubricate as it should, and the extra half litre would be overfilled a bit, which would cause the oil to foam, which also would affect lubrication. countrycurt0
Um, need a 17 mm wrench or socket to remove the drain plug under the motor and the oil filter is behind the motor almost center, but get to it from the front or maybe driver side of the car. When u remove the oil filter, make sure the old o ring was remaoved as well, can easily tell if it is by looking at the old filter, it should still be on it.
Put some old oil on the new filter o ring to make sure it doesn't kink when u install it. To tighten the filter, screw it by hand until it' s snug, then give about half a turn more.
Engine should need about 3.7 litres or less to be full. So put 3 litres in it, start car for about 10 seconds and turn it off. Verify oil level and top up as necessary.
