Jeep girl

Hi everyone, had to teach my grandson how to work on vehicles, so he could help me because I’m getting a little older, I’m excited to try this out, I have a 95 grand Cherokee Laredo 5.2 L V8 with 300,000 miles on her, strong motor, she starting to get little more leaks, My Chiltons and my Haynes doesn’t give me all the information I need, YouTube is not helpful either, so I’m looking here for knowledge and experience, I have a leak between my transmission and transfer case, I separated it, You can see a film gunk buildup like puddle on the housing on both sides, but I’m not sure how to pull the seals, I don’t want to hurt her and I’m a stickler on doing things the right way the first time. So I’m hoping to meet other jeep family members when I get stuck.

sounds like you are dealing with a rear main seal issue.
and at 300K not that unexpected..

My thoughts - how much oil are you loosing - is it manageable a Qt every X miles?
Have you inspected and replaced as necessary PCV components?

What specific info do you want?
The 5.2 was common across the Mopar family maybe looking at dodge trucks will broaden the search results.

At 300K and a manageable oil consumption I would say leave the seals alone - plan for the engine overhaul and deal with seals then.

When I see the price of OEM I think aftermarket.
When I see the quality of aftermarket I think OEM.
