I have an oil leak but I haven't been able to discover exactly where it's coming from. it seems to be in the general area of the oil pan, slightly to the right, (if you're facing the same way as the jeep) and then there's some residue up to about 2 feet back. any ideas? i'm not really a mechanic (other than a bicycle mechanic), but i'm really enjoying learning about my jeep and would like to know if there is anything i could do about it before i take it to the shop.

-Thanks!

so you mean the passenger side of the engine??? check you oil filter. the adapter that the oil filter screws on to is a common leak. there are 3 o-rings inside that you can get at the dealership for like $5.

could possibly be a rear main seal or both.
