Oil leak at filter

I have a 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a cold weather oil leak at the filter housing. It is actually where the filter housing connects to the block (6 cyl). After the motor warms leak self seals and appears to be OK. Only occurs when engine block is cold.

I have a 93 grand Jeep Cherokee Laradeo ,to change the oil pan seal , and or the oil filter housing to change the O rings , or the timing cover seal or the rear seal , dose one need too lift up or pull...

The oil filter housing and the timing cover can all be worked on with engine in car.
For the rear engine seal (rear main seal), the transfer case and transmission will have to be removed to access the seal.
Most of the time, the oil pan can be removed without raising the engine. Check your clearance under there for anything obstructing removal. (I loaned out my Jeep manual and never got it back!) On some cars, engine needs to be raised about 4 inches for pan to clear the oil pickup tube. Don't know about your Jeep.

EI have a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee. When I crank it up it has an overpoering fume coming off it. Does not seem to be coming from exhaust. Do you have any answers

In cold weather smell of fuel from engine compartment is typical but PLEASE check and make sure you don't leak! Leaks cause fires

Oil filter housing leaking

Before you suspect the housing, check the oil pressure switch that is mounted in the same area. These switches are known to fail, and cause oil to leak on the oil filter area. Just a thought.

Can you use 5w30 in a 2001 jeep grand cherokee laredo?

Unless you live in an extremely cold climate (sub or close to sub zero) I'd recommend using at least a 10w 40 oil. The first number indicates how well the oil pours (flows) at freezing, the second is how well it protects at operating temperature. Your other option is to use a 10W 40 synthetic which actually flows and protects far beyond the #'s on the container on both ends of the scale. One reason some manufacturers have specified a lower first number is because they feel that will keep the piston rings free.
In reality, any good oil will do that (non-paraffin base) and any of the synthetics will do it better. I live in an area where we get both very cold weather and also some very hot weather. I use a 20w 50 synthetic and have never had an oil related problem (my engines regularly go over 350K and vehicles are replaced for other non engine related reasons such as body rust)

Jeep grand cherokee 94,oil leak between engine and transmission, the fluid is from the motor oil, please tell me how to correct this...

remove gearbox from engine and then flywheel and then change crankshaft oil seal, not a job for the faint hearted. Could the oil be dripping down from the camshaft cover, this is more common and easier to sort

94 jeep cherokee 4ltr. Leak at oil filter adapter

It is very hard to turn, but it will come loose, a cut off allen wrench attached to a pipe works great, as there is no clearance to do it any other way. Have at it cause the allen bolt is pretty hefty.

2001 Grand cherokee 4.7 low oil pressure in cold weather.

I'd suggest using a good brand of synthetic oil (which was actually developed a really long time ago for the armed forces for use in polar reigions) Most flushes loosen too much material all at once, causing blockage of the oil pickup screen. You can get a bit more cleaning and lubrication protection by adding a bit of marvel oil to the synthetic. Change just the filter (and lost oil) about every 1500 miles, till the problem subsides.
