Your engine may be junk now. First, get the oil pressure tested with an external gauge to verify that it is low, and that your oil sending unit or vehicle gauge isn't the problem.
Low oil or pressure wears out crank bearings, which destroys oil pressure.

What kind of sound? If it's a ticking sound from inside the valve cover it could be a bad rocker arm, worn lifter or lifter & cam lobe or broken valve spring (needs to be looked at). If the noise is deep and best heard at the oil pan. it could be a rod bearing or main beginning to go but generally, that lowers oil pressure. Another item that sounds nearly the same is a cracked flywheel. Careful listening can often unravel this or have a very experienced tech look at it....(still your choice on who does the repair).

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with a V8 engine, and a couple of months ago I noticed that oil was leaking from the front of the vehicle. Then during the past week, every morning I've heard a...


Wow,
I think we have determined if the "oil" you saw as engine oil, yes I would say it was.
Sorry no easy solution. You may have a main crank shaft seal leaking, a engine oil coolant line, or a manifold gasket leak.
As far as the "grinding" noise I would like more detail. An engine that is very low on oil will sound more like a diesel... knocka knocka knocka.
Unless you are an experianced tech, I would take to a reliable auto center.

Squealing or clicking sound and then next day grinding sound louder when you take foot off accelerator clicking sounds from right side grinding underneath 2002 grand cherokee


Squealing usually indicates that the brakes are in need of replacement. There is a small piece of metal that as the brake pads wear comes in contact with the metal rotor. When the pads get close to being worn away the tab touches the rotor and it squeals. The tab can also click.
When the pads are worn away completely the metal backing comes in contact with the rotor and it grinds. Grinding is bad. It means the car's brakes are metal to metal. This will cause damage to the rotors resulting in an even more costly brake job.
You should have it taken care of ASAP.
I hope this helps.

2000 Jeep Cherokee suddenly looses traction


Sounds like the transmission is slipping. Check the transmission fluid level and top off as needed. If the problem is not severe, an additive such as Lucas transmission additive may help.

Did you change the fluid first before you put it in? You might need to flush it out and put fresh fluid in it.
