ive heard of too many good ole boys F***ing up everything they touch. Good ole boys are the worst kind, they get in over there heads and cant justify doing it right for the price they are charging.

This is true, if it reaches the seal it will/can expand rubber.

Mine was leaking when I bought the Jeep. Icleaned the area with simole green and found 1 bolt completely gone and 2-3 on each side about to fall out. I tightened the loose ones and replaced the missing one and she's dry as could be 2 months later.

I just ordered a rear main seal but I'm not sure if this is the right one. I have a TJ 2002 4.0. Could someone take a look and see if this is the correct one? Thanks. Crankshaft Rear Main Seal Kit by Crown Automotive and Other Jeep Parts and Jeep Accessories by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware

Here is the Felpro oil pan gasket part number. It's a one piece gasket.



According to RockAuto Auto Parts your 2002 4.0L takes a FEL-PRO Part # BS40183 rear main seal (2 piece set)

I have a rear main and oil pan gasket leak. Both were replaced by the dealer about 5 months ago. The engine only has 40,000 miles on it and the new gaskets only have about 4,000 miles on them. Any ideas.? I did just change to synthetic, but the rear main was leaking before the change.

Take it back to the dealer and ask them to fix it under warranty. A rear main should last longer than that.

Fel-Pro hands down, IMO. The Victor Reinz gaskets are pretty much "standard issue" at NAPA stores, and I have never cared for them. On the other hand, I've never been disappointed with a Fel-Pro gasket, unless I "effed up" the install myself.

What RTV do you guys recommend to hold front and rear of the oil pan, would ultra copper hi-temp be good?

I see they used the Red but I just wonder if the copper is a little better?

I just went with grey RTV, no leaks. It doesn't have to be high temp or super duper strength stuff. There is little pressure going on there. It's really just a back up.

The transmission must be removed on the 4 cylinder. It has a 1 piece rear main seal.
