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
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!
