If you're sure it's leaking from the plug, go ahead and pull it, clean the plug, and the fill hole, and put it back in.

If that still doesn't work, you may need a new plug. Your jeep is getting older now and the rubber might not be soft enough to seal properly.

That rubber fill plug is the worst idea....I'm sure it saves Chrysler a bunch in production costs.

I'd try a new plug.

x2... considering your rig is a 97, and maybe its likely the plug is original
(now 11 years old) buying a new one is a cheap fix...

Yeah I take it offroad...my scratches have scratches!!!
