Question about 2008 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

Oil leaking from shock

I have a 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon that is less than 6 months old. I noticed that the shock on the passenger side was leaking oil. Is this my steering stablizer shock? Should I drive it approximately 40 miles to the dealership or have them come get it since it is covered under the warranty?

I would not drive it like that. Have them come and get it. I used to work for Gabriel Shocks at the Manufacturing Plant in Oklahoma and can Tell you that you Could loose Control Driving it that way. Warranty will cover it.

2008 jeep wrangler hood problem

I just bought a 2008 jeep wrangler and my hood is lifting 2 to 3 inches off the frame when I'm driving on the highway in wind speeds over 15 to 20 mph. I've owned two jeep wranglers in the past and I've never had this problem but chrysler keeps telling me this is normal. What's normal about a hood that is lifting off the frame?

Why is my 2007 jeep burning oil

there could be a number of reasons why your jeep is burning oil, chances are you need to change out the rings but i would do a compression check just to verify that. Also just in case you have not already checked for leaks under the car do that.

2007 jeep rubicon using 1 quart of oil every 1000 miles

If it is not visibly leaking oil - the exhaust should be smoking. If the smoke comes out when you lift off your foot and when you start frost thing in the day, it could be valve stem seals leaking. If it smokes while you drive normally your rings need replacing.

My 2oo7 jeep wrangler keeps needing oil, but shows no sign of leaking and no sign of burnning it.

how fast is it dissapearing? if it is dissapearing fast check your radiator to see if it is going into the radiator if so that is a blown head gasket. if it dissappears slowly the oil is breaking down. my brother turned me on to casterol oil. it doesn't break down like normal oils

Water leak to floorboard on drivers side. Carpet wet all the time with standing water. My Jeep is a 2007 Wrangler/rubicon

It it happens when it is raining. This seems to be a common problem with Vehicles.

There is a seal on the passenger side Hood Hinge area. If this seal is cracked or broken or missing you will get water in the car every time it rains.
The water runs down the windshield in to the Hing area under the Hood.

You may need to take the hood off to get to the seal. First pour water over the area, if it comes in the car there is your problem.

You can seal it with any water proof silicone sealer .

I have a 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, and bought it new. I perform regular oil changes, and drive very little. A few months after the last oil change I noticed the oil light come on very briefly, then...

You probably spun a bearing. My wifes 2000 ford mustang did the same thing she never checked the oil and she said the oil light would come on briefly and oil empty filled back and knocking during acceleration and idle tore apart motor and there were three spun bearings.

If it is still under warranty take it to the dealer. You could have at a minimum have thrown the weights off the tires. But anything like tie rod ends or belts in the tires could be bad.
