Im new to the forum, this is my first post but i have read a lot here and found tons of useful info, well i just got myself into a jeep for the first time, i come from the mustang world, but have always like the jeeps, so i sold the mustang and got a 2006 65th anniversary wrangler, for 16k it only has 45k miles
i drove it this weekend across the island (im from PR) the jeep held up great, when i got home i checked everything and the only 2 issues i found were, some oil dripping thru the sides of the oil pan, im thinking it could be the gasket from the oil pan, but also saw some oil coming from the oil filter, so idk,
the other issue is that i think i have a exhaust manifold leak, but im not sure, (the mustangs are known for the manifold cracking at the flange, so im a bit familiar with the leak sound) i got a video of the sound so you guys could tell me if that is normal or if its a leak , you can hearlyy clearly on 0:12
Sounds pretty normal to me. The oil could well be coming from the filter. When the filter is changed you usually get some oil that spills and runs down the side of the block. If it's not cleaned up well it can puddle on the bottom flange of the block and run down the side of the pan. If the rubber gasket on the old filter stuck to the block and wasn't removed before installing the new filter you'll usually get a leak. An over tightened filter can leak.
Clean the engine well and watch for the source of the oil.
Welcome to the forum and the world of Jeeps.
Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.
i just found the whoosh issue, its the belt, its stretch, i saw a thread on how to inspect the belt, with the 2 line in the tensioner and im almost in the first line, also notice that the tensioner swings up and down a bit, its this normal?
