Usual oil leak spots in a 5.2?
I'm looking at a 98 5.2 and i noticed it had a oil leak underneath and was wet around the back of the engine and the front of the engine. Where are the usual spots the 5.2 would leak from and would they be easy to fix? It also has 146k miles on it.
How many miles? Oil pan gasket too. But valve cover gaskets normally last 100k miles. Maybe longer, depends on how long you put it off.
94 ZJ Laredo. 5.2 Crate engine. 6in JKS SA Lift. 33in Destination MTs. ARB Front Bumper.
It has 146k miles. I know I will need to change out atleast 1 cv and steering stabilizer. Other then that and the oil leaks the jeep is in pretty good condition. I had a 4.0 but i'm not entirely sure where all to look on a 5.2 and its a 98 if theres anything else i need to check.
Check the oil pressure sending unit. I bought a 95 and it had a oil leak the PO couldn't find. I had to replace the valve cover gaskets that was easy. Then it ran out of oil when to pressure sending unit finished cracking and became a fountain. You need to buy the special socket $10 and the unit was $25. It took 10 minutes.
