I have been noticing that oil is leaking from the bases of the two hoses on top of my 4.0L engine - I have been just shrugging it off and keeping an eye on it, I mean this thing has leaked oil since I got it with 61,000 miles. (now at 68,800).
First oil change I had a shop do, and it leaked then too, but this time I did it and it still does this.
What would cause this? I was thinking maybe I put too much oil in (manual said 6 quarts so I put in 5.5 and checked the dipstick; it looked over, so I drained even more from the bottom.. still said overfull on the dipstick but I just don't see how? I'm positive 5 quarts or more drained because I put the used oil in the 5.1 quart container and it was more full than when new.
My engine is nicely coated with mud from a recent off-road excursion after a rain storm; so now it's very easy to see where the oil is running down.
