2010 Jeep Liberty Q&A
2010 Jeep Liberty Question: oil leaks that dealer cannot find?
I have had a oil leak that drips on the floor in spots off the front skid plate area. The drip is ferom above and lands on the oil filer area. The dealer has had it numerous times and even with dye they claim they cannot locate it. A private garage says tyhey could find it in 1 1/2 hours but why should I have to pay $100 of dollars when the dealer should fix it under your service contract. I have the proof and contacted the MFG supervisor. I cannot believe why a private repair shop could do it and they see the areas the oil drips but the dealer lies and cannot or do not want to fix it. I got the MFG zone manager involved. Maybe the lazy dealer mechanics will now be forced to do work and fix it. If the die shows a leak why they cannot repair it. Does anyone else have oil leaks that the dealer claims they cannot find where they are coming from or don`t want to fix it. I feel it is a head or block problem and they don`t want to do engine work on the junky 3.7 v6 engines... Let me know. The engine also sounds like a sewing machine on cold starts but they claim they all do it and that partm of the negine noise they all make. I don`t believe it either. I paid cash and I am sorry i bought this jeep and I never will buy another specially when the dealer gives you problems to get it fixed right in the frist place. - barryfishing

THIS IS WARRANTY WORK AND TELL THEM U WILL NOT PAY THE 100.00 DIAG FEE BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS. TELL THEM TO USE OIL LEAK DYE AND IT WILL BE OBVIOUS - globalhelper
Curious question , but where are the oil changes being done? ........As far as lazy dealer mechanics---- DO YOU GO TO WORK FOR FREE ?? AND IF WORK IS NOT AUTHORIZED BY MANAGEMENT , DO YOU PAY THEM FOR THE PLEASURE OF WORKING??? I don't think so! - ziptie12
