Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee
Low oil pressure loud noise, had to fill almost 5 quarts of oil then the pressure went back up. There is now a very loud noise while accelerating. Had the oil changed 3000 miles ago. metal flakes in oil.
Unfortunately, the damage is done--the crankshaft bearing(s) have probably been ruined for lack of oil along with the pistons, rings, camshaft, valves, and so on. A major, major repair. Even if you fix the obvious noises, the rest of the engine will continue to haunt you. Cheapest repair is to find a replacement engine at a wrecking yard--they give a short guarantee for such parts which is long enough to reveal such things as oil burning and noises like you have now. A re-manufactured engine is the best of all choices, but quite expensive--probably over $3000. Hope this helps!
