kcookuscg Problably a stupid question but when they changed the oil they did get the old gasket/o-ring off before they put the new one on. Happened to my dads truck is why I ask. He ended up with a new engine on the dealership.

UTKJK My mechanic said it looks like the top oil pan seal. We'll replace this week and I'll update.

Miser It is not common on the 3.6, but very common on the TJ 4.0 I don't know about the 3.8.

UTKJK Just crawled under it with a flash light....the oil is everywhere, not like before. Oil pan, transmission dust cover, and everything in the proximity. The highest point I could find is the oil was on the filter near the I think that may be where it's coming from. Hopefully its the filter. Since I didn't see oil up that high when it was the seal...I'm praying it's only the filter.

Oil Leak - Returned

Bought my JK 1 year ago and it had a slight oil leak. Drip here, drip there, about a quart between oil changes.

About a month ago I had the rear main seal changed and it fixed it. But before even getting to my next oil change it's returned!

Is this common?
