The jeep doesnt run perfect but I know Im running very rich with the tailpipe scent and soot. After fixing all of what I just mentioned I planned in maximizing my air to fuel ratio because its outta wack now. Obviously everything I stated also affects it I know but just so I dont overlook something it would be nive to havea step by step
Fix all the leaks first, then replace the O2 sensors if it still isn't running correct. AFR is all based of the O2 readings and the MAP sensor data.
Burning oil is a whole different issue. you're either looking at massive PCV blow by or the piston rings or possibly the valve stem seals are going.
