Re: 2004 grand cherokee oil pan gasket
Got out there this morning and knocked the oil pump screen into pump and got the pump primed up with some STP oil treatment. Cleaned the pan good which it wasn't bad just had to clean the sealing surface good and replaced the rear main seal. That went alot better than I expected, got the main cap back on and the main brace torqued and put the new oil pump on. Got the pan back on and the starter back on, filled it up with oil and started it up. Oil pressure went up quickly thank goodness and so far I have only had a few drips but that may be just oil that was in the bellhousing from before. I wonder when the 4.0's went to an aluminum oil pump, I have rebuilt several but have never noticed the oil pump to be aluminum like this one. Anyway the job went pretty good and hopefully it will be good to go for awhile.
