You need to remove all the skrews from the door. Normaly there is one in the handle of the door, one behind the in door lach handel and one under the bump out for the arm rest on the door. Than you need to take a flat head skrew driver slowly priying the panel off. There are plastic clips on the backside of the panel it is ok if you brake a few.

SOURCE: what type of motor oil should i use for a 2001

There's a few that you can use - but in general

Use Full Synthetic only for the TDIs...

There's various schools of thought after that in terms of 5x 30, 5w 40, even 0w 30 or 0w40

I've been using Castrol Synthetic 5w 30. The original specs for my 2000 Jetta TDI may have been for 5w40 oil formulated for diesels - but with the Synthetics now I think the 5w30 is felt to be the best in terms of what works best in the Turbo

You can probably go every 5,000 to 7,500 miles between changes - a good thing since the synthetic oils are more expensive

by the way, some also suggest changing the fuel filter at every oil change. I'm thinking that's a bit much but others may disagree... maybe ever 15,000 miles for me

SOURCE: Exactly where is oil pressure sending unit located

if you have the 5.2 V8 its located in the rear of the engine near the dist cap area you can see it if you look in that area , if 4.0 6 cyl its located on the side of the engine block near the oil filter area. It has two wires going to it and screws into the block. It's made mainly of plastic and if broken can allow oil under pressure to spew out and give you thoughts of a blown rear main seal due to the amount of oil all over the underside.

2001 jeep grand cherokee exhaust smoke whitish color.runs great sounds great,smoking is not continuous ,kind of pale in color, and is using oil.

Hello. yes, you are burning oil resulting in the white smoke. Try a heavier weight oil in the crank case, or an oil additive specifically for high mileage, oil burning vehicles. There are a number of them on the shelves at any auto parts store. J.

What oil type for 2001 grand chereoke

Mfg recommends 10w 30 I recommend 10w or 20w 40 and if you want to do it better, use a good quality synthetic. Oil alone will not protect the engine...use the best filter you can find.(smallest micron rating). That will keep particles that can wear out parts to a minimum.

My jeep grand cherokee key will not turn when inserted into the ignition

buy a tube of lock cylinder lube (never use any type of oil) from any hardware store, spray the powdered graphite into the cylinder and then insert the key several times while trying to turn it, if this doesn't work u will need to replace the cylinder and have the anti theft programmed for the new key (if so equipped).
