I recently bought my 17 yr old daughter a 1997 Wrangler sport. After a few days I noticed a small oil leak under the vehicle. I brought it to my mechanic who had to replace the rear oil seal. A few days...


Mate.If its a six cyl, motor the rear seal wasn't done right.Its a 2 part seal and you have to remove the sump to do it. The mechanic doesn't want to admit a stuffup.The most common cause is not the correct sealer when the new seal is installed.It has to be slid around and in with the bearing cap removed.This is on a 6 cyl.Hope this helps

Engine diagram 1997 jeep wrangler SE


So how do you know you need one if you dont know where it is?? Oil pumps rarely go bad unless the engine is sludged from lack of maintenence. After you take the oil pan off, its there hanging down. Make sure you clean or replace the pick up tube. I'm sure you can google up torque specs, for the bolts. Usually there is major engine damage by the time you figure out that there is lack of oil pressure. I would get a professionals opinion before you waste time and money replaicing the oil pump. If the engine has any unusual noise or knocking, its too late.

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???

1997 Jeep Wrangler oil pressure gauge not working


The gage is working because it is coming on sometimes. The oil pressure sending unit on the engine is starting to go. I would replace the oil pressure switch on the engine first.

Jeep Wrangler oil pan leak


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.
