Question about 2005 Jeep Liberty
Unfortunately, the problem isn't as easy to solve as icantry is describing...only because there IS a lot of "frame junk in the way" lol. Removal of the oil pan on this vehicle requires that the front axle assembly be removed from the vehicle, and the engine lifted about 3-4 inches. With the exception of pulling the entire engine out the top (which might be easier), there is no other way to remove the oil pan. Also, the oil pan gasket also serves as a windage tray and must be bolted to the underside of the crank bearing caps before bolting the new pan on. So proper steps: -remove both front wheel assemblies -disconnect the lower ball joint and the sway bar link bolts. -pull C/V shaft assemblies from axle -remove lower control arm to frame mounting bolts -disconnect front drive shaft from front diff -remove left side front

As long as you have clear access and not a whole bunch of frame junk in the way,here goes.Drain the oil.You may be able to find a used one at a salvage yard.If it snows alot where you are and they use a lot of salt in winter,you may want a new one.Remove all the bolts.I would probably buy a new oil pan gasket too and replace the oil filter.Put the new gasket on the new pan so the holes line up.Start putting the bolts back in every other one switch side to side and just give them 4 or 5 turns.Tighten them down almost all the way,just before it starts to resist.Then finish tightening,opposite corner,every other bolt,down one way,back the other way.It's hard to explain on a computer.Put on new filter.Never use those filter tighteners/loop things.They shouldn't even be allowed to sell them unless maybe diesel needs them.You only hand tighten an oil filter.It will not leak.If you need any help,just comment to this post and I will get an auto email with a link to it.Good luck!
