|Dawn10||Oh my gosh that is horrible! I smelled something thats why I checked mine and barely anything on dipstick so I just check it every 2 wks. Mine's an 08 with same mileage as yours. I drive mine to beach every yr too! I am so sorry for you!|

Definitely keep an eye on it. I had my oil changed less than 2k ago and when I was driving yesterday, the engine started clicking. Took it in today and was told my engine is bye-bye. I had apparently been driving with 0 oil.
I have read so many stories of this excessive oil consumption and wish I knew before. There was no warning, no bad smell, no smoke. For an '07 JK with 40000 miles, it's ridiculous and I'm furious. I'd hate to see anyone else face this. It's my 3rd Jeep and I've never had to deal with crap like this.

|Dawn10||Well I got an oil change and all 4 guys had something different to say about the oil. One said his dad has the same engine and has the same problem, another guy said it was the oil they put in burns up fast and the other guy said Jeeps go through oil like that and i could come in when it's low and it's free. Yet when it was all said and done it came to $70! I said what! Is it because I'm a chick! Well you could use a new filter and I took $5 off! I even had a coupon for $10 off. Geez...... I guess they see blonde and take my money.|

|JGreen06TJ||Several letters in JP Magazine talking about excessive oil use in the JKs. Had a letter this month that said they used SeaFoam motor treatment and havent had the problem again. Good luck. Keep an eye on it. I've had vehicles in the past that used lots of oil. I kept several quarts in the trunk and topped off monthly.|

|Dawn10||I thought the same thing about well if it breaks down I'll know then. The oil thing scares me so may have to find someone to check it out. Surely don't want to drive it to the beach 12 hrs and it break down on me this summer... ugh!|

|sirchadley||do you have any drips under it after it sits? have someone start it while you look at the tail pipe to see if there is any blue smoke. not real sure about the clutch issue. maybe a throw out bearing going out but not real sure.|

So my Jeep runs low on oil way before it's due for another oil change. I have to check it and pour some in about every 4 wks. This last time you could barely see oil on dipstick. Shit, I could have blown the engine up. Is this normal for Jeeps to use so much oil? Also, If Im sitting at a light, put it in neutral theres a loud clicking noise but when I put the clutch in you dont hear it. Help!
