How do you remove a oil filter cap when its stuck?

First make sure you have the right tool to remove it and try again and make sure you turn counterclockwise (yeah.. it happens), then if it is a plastic oil filter cap you can try to heat it with a hair dryer , it should do the job. Plastic cap are not supposed to get stuck ; or it was dirty when put back, or the O ring broke and the cap got stuck, if you can't take it off at all have a quick run to the garage they'll remove it for you.

Motor oil gets dirty quickly after a change. Also a loud whining noise increases as speed does. 2008 Grand Cherokee w/ only 25K miles. Thanks

Any number of things could be wrong internal to the engine, probably a bad bearing. In any case, it really doesn't matter as the truck should be covered by warranty. Take it in to the dealer and have them take care of it.

If you don't trust them, have your oil analyzed by a lab. You may have one locally or you can send it in to somebody like Amsoil for a bit over $30 for the service.

2002 Ranger 4L v6 engine light stays on. Quick trouble shoot showed both banks were lean. What might be the cause?

A dirty Mass Air Flow Sensor (MAF) will cause and lean condition and also and dirty IAT will give you a lean condition. If you are using a oil charged air filter like K&N, droplet of oil will make there way to the MAF sensore and IAT causing them to give the wrong readings. You can buy a can of MAF sensor cleaner and clean both sensors. Make sure it's a MAF cleaner and follow the instructions. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, there are other reasons but this is the most common.

I had the same problem as described here ... quoted "sometimes flashing quickly, slowly, or sometimes turning off. The antilock brake light has also come on several times."

and the dealership told me that the electrical conector that goes externally to the gear drive is getting dirty with oil .... two times I sent the car and they told me the same and solved it ... no charges at least but I having the same problem again ... I really want to know where is that electrical conector just to clean it up or put something that avoid dirty or oil get in it again ...
