Bad relay?
More specifically a stuck relay, I would replace the relay for the Hellas, see if that doesn't fix it.

It's cuz you are a leafs fan. But, your 4.7 isn't an amount of oil it needs, it's something like the cubic volume of all your pistons can grab. My 5.7 takes 7 litres of oil. You have a 4.7 Litre engine, 4.7 litres of volume, not 4.7 litres of oil engine. Something like that, I'm no gear head.

haha hey now, we're down in the dumps as it is, we know we suck

but thanks everyone, that makes sense. it's what I figured, but wanted to make sure I wasn't getting hustled because I get charged extra each time for the extra oil.

Print out your build sheet so everytime you go in you can prove to them its the 4.7L lol.

Installed my Sonnax Line booster for my transmission. I have no numbers to back this up but it shifts a lot smoother between gears for me so the slight increase in fluid pressure has def made a difference since jeep tunes it down for the general public. I'm very happy with it. I drove it a couple hours today after installing it.

Started the pinch-weld mod...might have to finish it tomorrow depending on how long the paint takes to dry.
