Question about 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee
1999 grand cherokee; oil smell in cab
small drip of oil between oil pan and tranny.
is there a gasket between engine and tranny?
would this cause the oil smell in the cab?
Get under there and look to see where oil is escaping. Oil, like everything else runs downward. Therefore it may be coming from the top of the engine. If you have a 4.0, the valve covers are plastic and tend to leak a bit... Generally you can gently (or you will break them off) tighten the v/c fasteners and eliminate most if not all of the seepage. If it continues, replace the gasket. There is only one seal between trans and engine, called a rear main seal. It is better left alone. It's a big job and best done by a shop.
