Started noticing a burning smell, usually occurs approximately 1 mile/3 minutes after starting the vehicle, after stopping at the first stoplight. Smell comes and goes.
oil flowing from the right front top edge of the oil pan while engine is running
Oil leaking from timing cover, covered under extended warranty.
I am having the same problem. Trying to figure out how to fix it now. The place where I change my oil is telling me it will be expensive due to how you have to replace the gasket. BTW the oil pan gasket is what they are saying is leaking. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
The oil pressure sending unit was leaking which looked like an oil pan gasket leak. Realtivly easy fix for about $35
Leaking oil pan- rust damage- not repaired at this time
Yes, am sad to say,my 2011 Jeep Wrangled is a oil leaker. Engine wet with oil,value covers, and other areas.
When I park it, a small oil 'puddle' develops. Engine oil burnt oil smell. Time to trade at 140,000 miles. Mostly, mail delivery miles. 66 miles of stopping and accellerating.
4.0 inline six. Oil leaking from valve cover, high oil pressure but low oil level
same problem was told that my Jeep is used very often and that is what cuases the leaks. My Jeep is driven everyday 30 to 40 miles. are you kidding me. Thought Jeep was reliable, built well. Way too many problems w/ my Jeep lately!
