the write-up that is posted in here says 12 ft lbs for the oil pan bolts, which seems a little low... the other places i've found say 84 ft lbs for the 1/4" bolts and 132 ft lbs for the 5/16" bolts, which seems REALLY high... any thoughts?

Could the high numbers be in/lbs?

I realize this is an old thread but I am about to embark into the RMS and Oil Pan gasket replacement on my 03 Rubicon. For those that have done this, can you comment on the exhaust pipe bolts....I am curious if I should go ahead and have new bolts on hand since my guess is the existing will be rusted-on solid. I plan to have the exhaust pipe gaskets, an oil pan gasket, and at least two RMS gaskets (in case I f' one up during the install) on hand for the job....as well as some anaerobic RTV for the RMS.

My experience was similar to other posts where I bought the Jeep with 60K mi on it and as soon as I put synthetic oils in it, it started leaking up a storm....oh well....

Any pointers or info y'all can throw my way would be greatly appreciated.

well part of your problem is the synthetic oil, though the viscosity may be the same (10w-30) the actual oil molecules are smaller and will slip out more easily than dino oil.

How did it go? Just don't make the same mistake I did on the exhaust pipe bolts. I didn't realize they were part of exhaust and just grinded them off because i was getting frustrated.. woops.

Did you need an exhaust pipe gasket? I didn't see an old one on mine...

Zombie Thread....

I did my RMS a few months back. Didn't have any real problems with the bolts and mine's a 2004 - living in the RUST zone. Yours should be fine.

Good thinking on the second RMS. I'm picking up a couple when a place an order with Rock Auto; half the price than purchasing local.

As I remember I didn't take the exhaust bolts off, with a lot of finagling I was able to get the pan in and out with it there. I did have a Gibson exhaust though so maybe that made a difference. It was also a long time ago and I no longer have the Jeep so I can't go out and see if that’s how I did it.

Had a leak on my 97 TJ when I first bought it(5 years ago). Changed the oil pan gasket and that did the trick. Wasn't hard at all. Still have the rear seal and waiting for the day I need it. Like you, I was a little afraid to tackle that job, 400-500 seems reasonable to get it repaired. good luck

I'm going to be doing this to my 06 TJ, it has about 140,000 miles on it. I found a lot of good information on here, and that "DailyDrivenTJ" write up is great. Also I'm going to replace my spark plugs, O2 sensors, valve cover gasket, and PCV grommets. It's going to be oil drip free and all tuned up, I wont be able to drive it tho. After a buddy and I finish all that we will have downed too many beers to drive.

I got it, actually I got the tube from mopar for $20... If any one else is going to do this job soon, I have about 90% of a tube left over.

I replaced my Valve Cover Gasket, PCV Rubber Grommets, Rear Main Seal, Oil Pan Gasket and all 4 Oxygen Sensors. Took about 7 hours, and no more oils leaks.


-UPDATE- mopar anaerobic rtv SOLD!

i have a leak which i presume is coming from rear main seal. 2001 jeep just hit 110,000 miles. i have switched to Synthetic oil long ago. could that seriously be causing the leak?? at what mileage did yall have to replace your seal?
