estimate on oil leak

I've had an oil leak for some time now but it never seemed serious because it would happen when I'm not looking. But I finally got around to degreasing and finding the source, which is that rubber piece near the oil filter. My dad said i might have to replace the whole part but I'm double checking with you jeep experts to see other options.

I believe thats the oil pressure sending unit. If you search that on the forum you should get lots of info and pics to help you out.

That is indeed the oil pressure sending unit as stated above. Must have sprung a leak internally. You can get a replacement at Autozone for $26 or so.

The pressure sending units at Autozone I bought were garbage. One lasted less than 10k miles, others not much better. Went through 3 in a couple of years. I just recently put a mechanical gauge in. Leaking oil can destroy an engine if you loose enough obviously, and when my sending units would start leaking, they would leak more than just a few drops at a time, it was more of a steady stream when mine went bad. Luckily I did not loose an engine with those pieces of garbage.

I replaced mine maybe 5-6 years ago and haven't had a problem since. Maybe you got a bad batch or something. I agree that a mechanical gauge is a lot better.

Thanks for the input, I think I'll settle with buying the part from autozone and putting it in myself.

Did any mechanical gauge work or did you order a special one?
