Oil leak where trans. meets engine. Is this the oil pan gasket? or the rear main seal?


Could be either. It's rather cheap to change the oil pan gasket if you do it yourself. That would be my first route. If its the rear seal you have to pull the trans or engine to replace.

I have a 2002 jeep grand cherokee high output 4.7 8 cylinder engine. i change the oil with synthetic oil every 3500. mechanic said that one of the cylinders has no compression. what could be the problem?


The lack of compression can be the result of a bad valve, a bad ring, or a bad head gasket. You'll need to do a leakdown test to deterine where exactly it is leaking.

Oil leak at the bottom of the oil pan. Still leaking after i tightend the pan bolt. What should i check next, can this cause other problems?


Dear Sir,
Here is the oil leaking Problem Identifying Technique

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket are common.
  • The intake manifold plenum gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption/burning and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.
  • External oil leaks from valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets (front or rear), and the rear crankshaft (rear main) seal area are common. The rear main seal is an unlikely source. Normally, the bearing cap mating surfaces (as well as the sealing surface between the oil pan and bearing cap) are the source for the leaks.
  • Engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from the intake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.
  • If the oil filter casing shows signs of distortion from excessive oil pressure, the oil pump should be replaced.
  • Often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
  • Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

    Oil leak in my 92 jeep cherokee


    The most likely place for an engine to start leaking oil (when it's coming from the top and not the bottom) is around the valve covers -- the gasket goes bad. Next most likely is camshaft seals.

    Sometimes just tightening the valve cover botls will stop it or at least reduce it.

    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.
