3.7 Oil Leak help needed
New to the site, and new to Jeeps.
2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4X4
I have an oil leak from the valve cover, driver side. When you look at the cover from the front of the vehicle, the leak appears to be from the #2 bolt area, left side from the front. I replaced the valve cover and gasket, and still leaking, same bolt. Any suggestions?
Also, I put the vehicle on a lift and had a mechanic look underneath, and he saw some oil leaking from the area of the passenger side valve cover.
A friend of mine, who used to work for Jeep (mechanic) said the 3.7's were notorious for the valve covers cracking, leaking, that is whyI replaced the drivers side. If this is true, and the OEM replacement is just as cheaply made, then where can I go to get a sturdier replacement?
Thank you for any/all help and suggestions. I am sick of smelling burnt oil.
