Unhappy Oil Smell

I traded a modded 2012 Rubicon Unlimited in for this vehicle a 2013 wk2 5.7 Overland because of a back injury, and have been very happy with it.

So I have had a oil smell since I bought this vehicle and thought it was just break-in smells. I have a 1000 miles logged and took it in to the dealer yesterday and was told I have a leaking rear main seal, they said it was probably damaged at factory. They will take it in next week and repair...day and a half repair time. Other than that, Happy with the vehicle.

Were there any other things you noticed besides the smell? Noises, drove weird, etc.

I came from a JK as well and got a '13 overland 5.7

Re: Oil Smell

No other noticeable signs, no oil on the garage floor, or noises, just burned oil smell.
I really did like the JK, had alot of fun.

Re: Oil Smell

Anyone else had this issue? I got a really good deal on a new 2013 Summit with OR II and traded in my 2012 Overland. I have noticed a strange smell as well. Not sure of the issue. How did they find out it was the rear seal? Thanks

Re: Oil Smell

Update to main seal oil leak. Just got back from dealer, and was told after pulling cover found residue from factory install as being the cause of smell, so there is no leak, no problem. yeaaa!
