Well kev , if he had it serviced at a quicky lube type oil changing place , chances are they did not tighten the oil plug very tight... and it fell out....
either that , or he got a piece of highway shrapnel thru the side of his oil pan....

Sounds like the rear main oil seal on your motor is leaking. In order for it to be replaced, the transmission has to be removed. Not an easy task for the backyard mechanic.

I have a 1996 Grand Cherokee and it just recently started making oil. I started running it about 3 weeks ago after it had been standing for most of the past 6-9 months. I dropped the oil (about 13 qts),...


The only liquid that can be getting into the crankcase and mixing with the oil is engine coolant. This is caused by a bad head gasket. Driving the truck as it is will cause serious engine damage. Have it looked at by a professional mechanic before driving it again.

My automatic transmission shifts hard,slips and sometimes overdrive dont work ,other times its perfect. i put 1/ 2 qts.of fluid per week but has no apparent leak
