Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee
Hello and welcome to FixYa. check you engine for any noticeable signs of oil excessive in 1 particular area if you don't see any excessive oil stain. Try doing a valve job inspect lifters and push rods make sure they are not warped or clogged replace valve cover gaskets that should take care of most of your issues I would also have timing checked. If knocking continues. replace Rings and check for damaged main rods on the crank shaft in the bottom of the engine which could be knocking around in the oil pan Loosing Oil thru a bad gasket no worries easy fix but burning that much oil is definately a sign of time for engine overhaul or replacement motor. I hope this will help get you going. Please Rate Me. And you can always Ask Me.
