2001 Grand Cherkee Limited V8 oil leak
I have a 2001 Grand Cherokee Limited with the V8 and I have noticed That I am going through almost 2 quarts in about 3000 miles. I haven't had a chance to crawl around under it yet to see If I can tell were the leak is. I don't notice that it is burning oil. Just wondering if there are any obvious places to look for a leak. Any input would be most appreciated.

That's a lot. If it's actually leaking it should be easy to find at that rate. If your engine is consuming it, try changing your PCV valve.

valve cover gaskets. The right side on mine is leaking pretty good. I did replace the left side gasket and that took care of the leak on that side. You have to look at the back of the valve cover.

Well I replaced the PVC valve on my lunch we'll see if that makes a difference. No noticable leaks seen from under the hood. I have to change the oil this weekend so I get under it with a light and see if I can spot anything.

No need to change the oil at only 3k anymore unless you are truly under severe service, that and you've added 2 fresh quarts in that time to boot.

If you've lost 2 quarts from a leak you should have no trouble finding it, it'll look like a small creek!

The time now is 01:47 AM.
