Down the right side of my engine..... I think the seal needs to be replaced cause also my fluid levels are always overthe limit .... And the leak is all around well the cylinder block should be sealed tight... And now since yesturday theres some type of fluid on the under body fenders on both side to were it looks like something exploded ... Aand notice my power steering pump the line coming from the fluid storage its the line coming of the top right ......out

    I don't understand your comment; You said the oil is leaking but your fluid level is over the limit. It sounds like the valve covers are leaking, but the oil level should drop lower. You need to seek a shop very soon, you could have some very bad issues.

    If your Jeep will make it to a repair shop, that is where it needs to go! Have them check it out and give you the news and an estimate on the cost of repair! Before major engine damage is done!! Possible gas or coolant leaking into the crankcase.
