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.
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.
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!
