'05 Grand Cherokee...Leak?
My wife has a 2005 Grand Cherokee. She brought it to my attention yesterday that she thought she had an oil leak, because when she left for work yesterday, there was a spot in the garage.
When I got home from work (it was already dark, and the Jeep is in a garage), I got out a flash light and went to check out where it might be leaking from (hoping it was just a loose oil filter, and maybe with the cold weather, it had adjusted a little). When I looked underneath, there was a damp spot on the pavement underneath where the center console would be. Not being familiar with anything underneath this vehicle, and unfortunately not being smart enough to grab my camera yesterday, I think it's a transfer case (?) that leaked a bit.
I ran my finger through the spot on the pavement, and it was clear on my finger tips, and I would think gear oil would have color to it, but not sure. It didn't feel all dry like brake fluid, but was curious if anyone had any preliminary thoughts, or further courses of action I could take to diagnose. When I get home tonight, I'm going to take a bit more time and check all the fluids under the hood (in case it may be brake fluid or something).
