I've read through the forum and came across lots off answers and curious if any1 has experienced this same issue as me. I have a 2001 jeep wrangler 4.0 3spd auto. has roughly 120k miles on it. I bought it with 105k miles about 2yrs ago with an oil drip here and there and noticed the oil pressure was slightly below 40........ Oil leak got worse.... now every time I drive and park leaks a couple drops out on ground. well I finally pulled the valve cover, replaced the gasket, changed rear main seal( which I assumed was the issue), changed oil pump,changed oil pan gasket, changed oil, filter etc and installed everything back properly. Fired up and still same issue except oil pressure is about solid 35 now. Still dripping out same spot between transmission and oil pan but sometimes small drips and sometimes a teaspoon amount. Can definitely smell the oil burning after 20+minute commute after parking. Runs strong and doesn't hesitate when mudding or playing on rocks. nor does it knocks, motor sounds smooth.
Thanks for any info.
