Transmission and oil leaking in to oil pan under a 1999 jeep no seeable leak points but its a class 2 leak ( drips forming but no puddle under the vehicle)


There are three places above that pan that the leaks could be coming from. 1- Tail shaft of the transmission.Would be a red color. 2-3- Input and Output shafts on the transfer case. More the color of motor oil. There may be more oil in that skid pan just not at the correct angel to let it run off.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee, leaking coolant from what looks like the front of the oil pan, is that possiable?


not unless you have coolant in your oil(it would look like chocolate milk on your dip stick) its probably leaking out somewhere up above and dripping down to that spot where your finding it. wipe everything down, start the engine and watch it as it runs to see if you can identify its point of origin.my guess would be the radiator hose or the thermostat housing. hope this helps

2001 jeep grand cherokee leaking transmission fluid. It's not gushing out, just barely dripping when stopped and the tranny fluid level seems fine when checked (hot). It seems to be coming from the rear...


clean off entire area near where you suspect the leak is coming from, then look carefully to locate it. Try slightly tightening any bolts near the leak area after it's located If at the pan gasket do not overtighten or you will crush the gasket and it will leak more. Yes, it can be driven as long as you keep it full.

Oil leaks


clean off the area where you suspect the leak is then run and check. The only way to change rear main seal (and have it actually work) is by removing crankshaft. I have seen this attempted at least a hundred times and never seen one yet that didn't leak. Some of the new oils for "older engines" have a seal softener in them tha usually will help but don't expect results for months...it took years for seals to harden & wear.

`1992 jeep cherokee lorado straight inline 6 oil leaking from the where the oil filter attaches to the motor


I'm fairly certain that the parts stores carry the oil filter adapter gasket. Check around for it and make sure both surfaces are very clean. I like to use a FILM of sealant on both sides of the gasket and install. The reason why you use the sealant is to compensate for any irregulatities of both surfaces. You also might want to install a new oil pressure sending unit to the adapter while you have it off. That is another place where you could have a leak. They like to wear out prematurely also.
