Jeep Wrangler oil pan leak

My boyfriend has a 1997 Jeep Wrangler 4.0
He just got a brand new engine and the oil pan is leaking. he has put sealent on it numerous times and bought the oil pan gasket brand new about 4 times now, but it still wont stop! it only does it when the car is on for about 5 minutes than it starts dripping. Anyone know of anything? we dont want to take it to a mechanic beccause it will cost a fortune! Thanks in advance

Is it leaking at the same spot everytime? using a quality gasket? might have a matchup issue with oil pan and new engine. i would recommend very little sealer and use a grey sealer not the blue it wont hold up chtysler has there own sealent should only need a little in the corners.

You need to Put Blue ATV Silicone on Both sides of the Gasket to get it to Seal Properly. This is a High Temp Sealant and Once Set it will fix the Problem.

what if it's was not the gasket, and the oil seal rear leaks.
or trans leaks.
is car opted with,,, a trans A/T or M/T (auto/stick?)
is the oil leaking (sniff sniff/ look)
engine oil (use engine dye to see it)
ATF (red) or GL3 (manual gear lub)
first is to make sure which lube is leaking, then fix that.
sealing pay, is 3 things, good gasket, good sealant, and skill putting it on (and letting the sealant cure per lable)

To install:

  1. Install a new seal in the timing cover using a suitable seal installation tool.

Describe your 1997 Jeep Wrangler 1997 jeep wrangler 4 cyl idle fluctuates 900 rpm to 400 rpm after warmup no service engine light but check guages light comes on momentarily when rpm gets low and oil press...


The check gauges light is normal because at 400 rpm it isn't running fast enough to build sufficient oil pressure. I am guessing maybe a vaccum leak???

Oil pan removal on a 97 jeep wrangler


Instructions can be found in any basic manual but the simple version is to remove anything obvious that will be in your way (starter, trans lines etc). Disconnect both engine mounts and raise engine to get better clearance (watch stuff on top so you don't break anything) I usually stuff a couple of 2x4 wood blocks between engine & mounts to support it. Remove all pan bolts and take it down (remember pump pickup will interfere) Do what you need to do, then reverse process.

2002 Jeep Wrangler appears the rear of the oil pan gasket is leaking. How hard is it to change out and any tips/


It is the oil pan gasket all you have to do is drop the oil pan clean the bottom of the engine block and the surface of the oil pan and install the oil pan again. a very simple process. Make sure that it is not the rear main crank seal that is leaking. If it is the rear main then you will have to remove the tranny to replace the rear main seal.
