I have a oil leak that drips off the skid plate and it clearly can be seen. I also went to 2 other repair shops and they also see the leak but they both told me I am covered as mine is a 2010 liberty renegade. I been there manhy time and there is oil in the skid plate but the dealer always says they cannot see any leak. I took pictures and called the zone and they still just blow me off. It is not a nad leak yet but i have no choice but to wait as I am not going to spend money on a cover item. I think jeeop is the worst one I ever owned and wouldenever buy another as the dealers never fix it and lie about not able to reproduce the problem. I just got off the phone with the zone again so I will see tomorrow if they see the leak everyone else does......
I've been lurking around the forums for a while and never really had something to post till now. I had a 2008 Liberty Sport for 3 years. My wife and I loved it so much we decided to buy a new 2011 Sport. The truck has been great for the first 9000 miles of ownership, and now, I have a few issues.
I first noticed random oil spots on my driveway sometime last week. I looked under the Jeep and noticed that my driver side rear shock was leaking hydraulic fluid all over the driveway. Needless to say, I was pretty relieved it was just the shock, I mean I want to lift this thing eventually so I didn't really care. As I was walking away from the car, I noticed another oil spot that didn't really line up with the shock that was leaking. I drove the truck up on ramps and got underneath. The passenger side of my engine had oil all over the place!!
This is a pic of the passenger side spindle?
You can see where the oil had been splashing and dripping.
This is a pic of the headgasket?
You can see near that brass rivet there is an oil drip developing.
Here's a pic of a sensor on the bottom end of the engine. Does anybody know what this sensor is? You can see a drip on here also.
Last pic is on a bolt on the belly pan of the transfer case?
The car was at the dealer for it's 6000 mile oil change, so I don't think it's any residue from spilling oil when filling it up. I checked the oil level and it was fine.
Anyway, I showed the dealer what I had found at my 9000 mile oil change, last week. One of the service guys told me it was their fault. They must have not tightened up the oil filter well enough on the last oil change and that's where the oil was coming from. Huh?? The oil filter is on the other side of the engine isn't it? And it faces the front! Confused, I left the dealer, with an appointment to replace my rear shock today. When I dropped off the car this morning, I told the service manager that I still had an oil leak and even went out to the shop floor and showed him while the car was on the lift. He agreed that there was oil in places where there should not be. I was happy, I figured they would come back to me today with some type of diagnosis. Didn't happen. The dealer called me back a few hours ago to let me know that my car was ready with the new shocks, but they would like me to bring it in another day to diagnose the oil leak. The service manager said they put dye in the engine and would like me to drive it for 2 weeks. I kind of felt like he was blowing me off.
Has anyone else had small or large oil leaks with their Liberty? You guys think a valve cover gasket or pcv valve could go so early?
Thanks for reading, sorry for the long post, just bummed about my leaking Liberty.[/QUOTE]
