Question about 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2 Answers

Oil leak I had my oil changed about two weeks ago and now I have an oil leak from underneath. The leak is driping from the round casing between the front wheel axels. I belive this is the drive shaft or drive train? not sure. any how, the oil is dripping from there. Please let me know if you have any ideas of what is causing this...I guess it could be a failinf seal?

    When I accelerate to 60 on a small incline. Jeep begins to shake, engine light comes on, and feels like it's going to die and slows on its own. I must pull over and shut down then restart and baby it all the way home. I have taken it to 3 different mechanics...1 chrysler and nobody can tell me what is wrong with it. Can anyone help?

Take a good look under the vehicle. Check to see if the oil you are seeing on the differential (the round thing) is actually coming from above, at the engine. Make sure the engine oil pan drain plug is tight.
Make sure that the shop replaced the washer on the drain plug (usually visable just under the hex part of the plug, around edges) If oil is leaking from oil filter (cylindrical thing attached to engine), first try tightening it a bit. If tight, have the shop that did the work remove it and make sure that they didn't accidentally leave the old gasket on the the filter mount. Essentially, they did the work, they should fix the problem! Check your oil level before going anywhere! No oil=blown engine!!! Don't wait on this!!!

Does the oil have a strong smell? It sounds like it is your front differential and it may be that the lube center overfilled it during their routine. Take it back and see. If they have see if they can take a bit out.

My 2002 Chevy trailblazer was driven in 4 high for a week now I'm leaking some type of fluid help please on what it might be


Could be transmission fluid which would be red and leaking past the engine. It could be transfer case fluid which would tend to leak towards the driver's side and is like a heavy duty gear oil, or it could be the front differential, which would tend to be midline towards the front of the truck. Also a heavy type gear oil. I would put a big piece of cardboard underneath it to figure out what it is. Usually they check all that stuff when you take it in for an oil change so whatever is leaking should be low. It could be as simple as a loose fill plug or as bad a torn up gears and gaskets. Usually both that big a deal.

Oil Gauge Marking Way Past 80


Check your dipstick for antifreeze in the oil. You mad need to replace the oil pressure sensor/sending unit. If there's no antifreeze in engine oil, replace sending unit. Should be a round silver sending unit at the left rear place on the intake with a plastic black wiring connector with 2-3 wires going into it.

Yellow oil light came on, oil change was done 2 weeks ago ?


I had the same problem. But you most likely have a oil leak. If so, you can take it in or do it yourself (BUT ONLY IF YOU FIND THE LEAK ON THE HOSE OR OIL PAN) by putting electrical tape where the leak is. make sure you tape all around the hose where the leak is. and if thats not the problem you most likely have to tighten the bolts on the oil pan. (and this is me assuming you know where that is.) But if you dont it is almost directly in the middle of the engine (underneath). THIS SHOULD SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM. :)

When i do oil change, oil leaks somewhere around the oil filter, after the engine warm up leak stops. is not leaking its driping.


when you remove the old oil filter. insure the old filter seal came off with the filter. then when installing the new filter wet the new seal of the filter with a little oil. just dip your finger into new oil and smear it on the seal.

I had noticed a slight decrease in Anti Freeze over the past few months and now I have observed a small leak which looks like it is coming from underneath at or near the transfer case. What will leak...


driping from behind the cylinder heads or engine block,check your heater hoses or if you can do a pressure test and observe or listen to the back area of your engine.

Oil light flashing, last oil change 7 wks ago


I belive they didn't reset the oil light timer. I belive the sequence is 1. key on (not acc with engine off)
2. step on the brake pedal 5 times within 10 seconds. 3. key off. 4. start car. 5. check if the light went out. you may have to try it a few times to get it.

Rear differential leaking on 2003 Toyota Matrix AWD


No, not expensive.....no, not a lot of work.

Just make sure you have enough differential fluid to replentish what you drain out. All you need is a seal replacement if it is leaking from the casing....it is in the rear of your car, underneath....in between the tires....looks like a round, metal case. Look to see if it is leaking from around the edges.
