This problem is more than likely caused by someone hitting your oil sending unit which is located right above the oil filter on those models which is a poor design. The part can be bought at a parts store for about $25 and will only take a few minutes to replace. The job can be performed easier with a oil pressure sending unit socket which is designed for removing them.

remove the filter and be sure the is a rubber gasket attached, if so rub a bit of oil on it before replacing, being certain that interior threads are clean and not stripped ( if so replace filter) only turning hand tight, no not overly tighten.

I have a 91 Jeep Cherokee 4 cylinder. It is leeking above where the oil filter fits onto the chassis. I'm not sure what this part of the engine is called or how to fix the leak. Can a basic oil change...


I am assuming the oil filter is down low on the engine, since most of them are.

When you see an oil leak near the bottom of the engine, it is often difficult to determine where the oil is actually coming from. It could be leaking from the valve cover gaskets up higher on the engine and then running down to where you see it. A competent repair facility would likely clean off the engine, start the engine, and then try to see where the oil appears.

Furthermore, what you are seeing may not be oil. Power steering fluid can also leak and run down toward the bottom of the engine.

I wouldn't trust a basic oil change place to diagnose this and do the proper repair. The expertise of the personnel at these places is often minimal.

Oil leak


There's not much over there that can leak except for the filter. That diesel oil is heavy and persistent too. It'll drip from those steering linkages forever after a filter change. Check your turbo fittings too. It gets oil and then sends it back to the motor.
