Oil leak in 1996 Grand Cherokee Laredo
I just purchased a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4 with the 5.2 V8. The car seems to be running fine, however I started to notice something splattered on the bumper yesterday. I originally thought nothing of it and assumed it was something that splashed up from driving around. Today I noticed more of a splatter on the bumper (drivers side) and the splash continues up onto the hood. Upon further inspection I think I have an oil leak. I checked the level and it is way overfilled. The leak seems to be coming from a seal on a hose going to a device under the drivers side headlight. I don't know what it is and am unsure what to do. Can I simply undo the drain plug and let some out? Do I need to replace the seal on the hose? I'm broke and cant afford to take it to a mechanic yet. Please help. Thanks in advance...
