Question about 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I have been having many problems with this thing. the new thing we have found is that the oil has gas in it, bad. i pulled the dip stick, wiped it on a paper towel and my lord it smelled like my gas tank. what could it be this time, and what do i need to do to put a for sale sign on it? it is an endless money pit. I just did a full tune up on the car.Distributor cap, rotor, plugs, and wires, changed map sensor, oil change 100 miles ago.has a new computer, crank sensor,exhaust manifold, exhaust, battery, breaks, and tires. I'm so tired of putting money in this thing. I'm at about $3,000.00, and paid another $2,500.00 for it. So we can say $5,500.00. I just need to fix it, and sell it. Do you have any other suggestions? If I can't fix it I will just part it out, and hopefully get some of my money back. Thank you for all your time and help!!
I would recommend sell it as well. Just list all the new parts you got for it. I also recommend craigslist.org which is free or carsoup which is $25 until it sells.
When gas is getting into the oil, that usually means that either the piston rings are worn, bad valve, leaky fuel injectors, possibly fuel pressure regualtor. It is usually bad rings. The fuel being dumped in cylinder is not being burned up and therefore getting dumped into crank case.
Also if your timing is off, and engine doesn't fire at the right time, the fuel will get dumped.

You might have a spark plug that is not sparking. Fuel will still be sprayed into the cylinder and not ignite. It will then just drain into the crankcase past the rings. I would pull all your plugs and check the plugs. If you find one that is soaked in fuel, it's probably the one.
