I have a 1999 jeep grand cherokee with inline 6--- 4.0 liter this indestructable engine appears to sound like it has a rod knock , oil is right up there and oil pressure is good, I pulled the valve cover off and valve train is good, my question is--- can i pull off oil pan to check brgs with out pulling engine? :?javascript:emoticon('Confused')

Yes you can.. But you will need to drop the exhaust..

Take off the starter and maybe Jack up the jeep and let the axle dangle.. that should do it to pull the oil pan..


Good luck..


OH yeah.. Get a rear main seal. might as well replace it while you are there...

(its 2 piece)
