    Hi everyone, I got an oil change two days ago and switched from conventional to synthetic oil. Now the check engine light is on throwing code P0520 indicating something is up with my oil pressure sensor. Oil pressure light is not on just check engine light. Also everything sounds normal. Could...
  2. YJ Technical Discussion
    Hi, I've recently aquired a 1988 YJ wrangler with the AMC 258 engine and its time for an oil change, i was wondering if anyone knows what a recommended oil viscosity would be? The manuals I've read say 10W-30 for above 0° (32F) however where I live the average temperature is usually above 20°...

    I've now completed most of the maintenance on my recently purchased 2004 TJ sport. What are the recommended gear box oil change intervals ie transfer case, manual gear box, front & rear axels. I do appreciate that it somewhat depends on the type of driving done.

    I recently got a 2006 TJ Sport (4.0 liter) and went to do an oil change. There was a smaller oil filter on there than I anticipated (fl-910S). It looks like it fits correctly. What should I do?

    Hey everyone. new to the forum here and also a new Jeep owner. I recently bought a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport. I couldn't find an owners manual and everything I found online has conflicting arguments but how often should I change the oil and what type of oil do you recommend?

    So i've recently been reading online about JK owners (specifically the 3.8l) who have been switching from the factory recommended 5w-20 to 10w-30 with better performance on the 10w-30. I've got an '08 JKU with about 125,0000 miles on it. Im thinking about switching for my next oil change. so i'm...

    I had an oil change on my 2014 JK in August 2015 just a few days before I put the it into long term, professional, indoor storage. It was started up and idled for 30 minutes every month while in storage. For 2 1/2 years. So that's just 14 hours of engine use. Now I just got it back out, and...

    Tried to go into my local dealership the other day. They checked my VIN and said they couldn't change my oil because there was a safety recall that affects my car. I asked why I wasn't contacted and they had no answer. Never got a call, letter...nothing. So they placed me on a waiting list that...

    So I read all the posts about broken oil cooler stem. However, I haven't read about it coming out totally. Mine did. Has anyone else has this issue? How does it go back in and stay down? Is it broken? 2012 JK 3.6 penstar

    I’m getting ready to change the oil in my 2015 JKU and cannot find Pennzoil Ultra Platinum oil anywhere. It seriously is frustrating because the stuff seems to have vanished. Would there be any harm to my engine by switching to just Pennzoil Platinum? Thanks for any advice.

    Hopefully, there is a special place in hell for mechanics who over-torque oil pan bolts. I just traded in my 2010 JK Rubi for a 2013 and went to change the oil. Hmm, 13 mm wrench didn't get it-rounded the bolt after applying probably 100 ft. lbs. No problem, the alligator socket will get...

    Hi all, Just did the first oil change on my new 2015 JKU and I have a question about the filter. The filter I took out would rotate and lock in place - actually lock is kind of a strong word - it didn't click or anything it just stayed put when you flipped it over. The new filter, a...

    So I got new gears in my jeep a few months ago. I had to change the gear fluid after about 500 miles. I did it already based off the writeup on wayalife. It was pretty easy in the back. Just drain through the bottom hole and refill through the top. The front was a huge PITA because of the front...

    Hey All- So my 2014 JK officially has turned 1 year old as of Monday. While it only has 2400 miles (its not my daily driver) the oil itself is a year old. I've always heard either its X amount of milage or one year old...whichever comes first. Calling the dealership though and speaking to a...

    hey guys I bought a used 2013 wrangler sport and I know NOTHING about cars... it's so sad :( me knowing nothing about cars means that I can't do my own oil change.. How much do you guys pay for an oil change? I understand that there are few choices.. i've been hearing something about...

    I did my oil change 3000 miles ago. A week ago, when I turn the Jeep on, a message appeared in the dash board saying "Oil change required". This past Saturday, I did the oil change but the message is still showing everytime I put the key in. Do you guys know what do I have to do?

    Ok so less than a week ago I took my jeep to have it's oil changed at KJ's Quick Lube- always done it there with all my vehicles. It had a tiny bit of white smoke later that day running but went away so I figured they got somthing on a belt and it was burning off. Then 2 days after my oil change...

    G'Day, what fluid should I use for the Transmission and Transfer Case in my 2001 Wrangler, 5 speed manual, 6cy 4L? And how many litres of oil will I need? The reason that I am replacing the fluid is because I'm about to replace my clutch so while the transmission is out I will replace the fluid...
