New YJ, Questions.

Link to my post in the local section:

Moved to Pueblo, Few Questions.

I have no idea what size tires I have or the size of the lift I may have to just ask when I take it in to get worked on.

The pictures are mostly showing the oil "trail" or where theres odd sprays of it. There looks like a bolt missing and a piece of metal missing in 2 of the pics right behind what I believe is the oilpan. I haven't had much time to get acquainted with Old Yeller just yet but if anything looks amiss or any ideas where this oil may be coming from I'd like to know so I can have it fixed asap.

Looks like a 4" lift to me. The tire size isn't on the sidewall?

All I can read is M+S LT285/75R16 from PRO COMP. Rims are also PRO COMP. and on the tire it says mount only on 16" rims.

That's your tire size.

You can google a tire size metric to inches to find your tire size

Your tires are just short of 33". They are about 32.8" in height.

One word of caution. I am having a problem correcting the indicated speed to "reality" due to oversized tires/wheels. Be careful - speeding tickets are costly. Around here most of the traffic cops and Highway Patrol will "spot" you a radar check if you ask nicely and they aren't really busy at the time.

Get a GPS and know just what speed you are driving.

Your oil leak is most likely the Valve Cover, a lot of Folks think they save money and use the Cork gaskets and not the better metal one that covered in rubber and is reuse-ale.

I've never been heavy on the gas since I lived in hawaii. Pretty easy to just hop in the jeep and cruise at the speed limit and not worry about being pulled over. It is a challenge in mine though because when I read 60 mph my wife's read 70...

If it isnt the valve cover (easy to spot) here is a great video on the oil pressure sending unit:

Hey I finally got time to look at the video but he mentions that the oil pressure was reading wrong and mine always seems to read between 40 and 50. Underneath I can see where a corner of a metal plate is broke and a screw missing. Its in the picture but I don't know what I'm looking at. I will still take a look at it anyway though because that is a very easy fix. If its the valve cover how easy is that to change? I'm assuming its just a gasket that would need changing but anything I would need to avoid or is it just take it off clean off the old and install the new?

Valve cover is just off and on if your fair with a wrench but there are two gaskets to chose from, one's about $9 and it's worth it, the other is about $40 and it is Well Worth It!

What is that area in front of the distributor? Like, there is a spot where a type of pump would go in different models. Maybe an ABS pump? Just wondering what goes there.
