Oil Leaking!z
 
5900 miles and I have an oil leak that is dripping from the passenger side front corner of the vehicle. Anyone experience this yet?


Thanks,
Matt

I just dropped my Jeep off at the dealership. I have a teaspoon a day leak plus my car is telling me I need an oil change at 2600 miles. Mine is in a similar passenger side location but more towards the middle.

Got under my vehicle and it looks like its coming from a sensor...possibly

Dealership said it was a valve stem seal. Have to order a new part. It will be here in the morning.

They had to pull the valve cover to find it?

Correction: It was the right Valve Cover that needed to be replaced.

If they change your oil make sure they use 0W-40. I have to go back again because they used 5W-40.

The Mexicans did a piss poor job puting it together?
I read that it uses 5W-40

Chrysler sent out a recall notice a month or two ago telling everyone to use 0W-40.
