Was this the sound of the pig

If it goes out, oil ceases to move, so make sure just lubing it didn't merely cover the actual problem otherwise you might be looking at a new engine.
Hello! i am new to owning a jeep and just bought it Oct.2010. A month into driving it this horrible noise appeared upon starting for the first time, after driving for about 5 min it would quit. No warning lights, all gauges in normal range.

Thank you Tiny and Jerry for the feedback.
I reported it to the Jeep Official dealership and thay have replaced it under the warranty clause.

Had you guys had not highlighted its importance I would have had ignored it.

So thanks again

Jerry Bransford That houses the camshaft position sensor. Some are reporting theirs are noisy too but I understand the factory has issued a TSB (technical service bulletin) on how to cure it at the dealership.

Tell me what is this thing?

Hi all,

I have a Wrangler 2006, that has about 50,000 KM roughly 31,000 Miles.
I had it now for 2+ years.

I was driving for about 300KM and heard a sound coming from the engine that I was not pleased to hear.

I stopped by one on those mechanics on the road, and the guy told me that is the delco distributor (could be mis-spelled) so had to lubricate it and the sound has gone.

Questions:
What is this thing called?
Is something that I better replace?
What was causing the sound, since the car is almost new?
I will try to attach an image of the engine with the thing.

Thanks
