oil leak problum

I have a 05 tj, and also have a oil leak from the pan gasket. But right now due to fundage dont have the money to get it fixed, So my question is does anyone know of a good oil additive with stop leak that wont harm my engine?

Stay on top of your oil level and add as needed until you get it fixed. Sooner than later

First off ..... HELLO! from one Chattanooga guy to another.

I haven't replaced the oil pan gasket on mine yet, but it should be a straight-forward operation with a socket and ratchet. Advance auto has the pan gasket for $25.99. All you'll need otherwise is some type of scraper to get the old one off and the surfaces clean. Crawl under there and get after it.

And never, EVER put any type of "sealer" in your oil.

Ohh I've heard it was a lot of work, and I didn't know if I would have enough room to pull the pan out

Most of the time the oil pan gasket is not the culprit...look higher up the engine. Everything runs down to the pan and then runs off it fooling you into condemning the pan gasket. Check the valve cover gasket and the oil psi switch.
