Hi All. I have a 96í XJ with the 4.0 inline 6 motor. I am getting a pretty decent oil leak between the block and oil filter, I believe there are 3 O Rings between the block and oil filter adapter plate. My question is how easy is this job to do? Any special bolt torque? And any tricks or special things I should know before tackling this job. I see itís a pretty tight area.. I didnít know if all the O Rings pulled out when you pull the filter bracket off or do you have to get them out of seats in the hole in the block?

I did this a while back on my 92XJ.

Hardest part is obtaining CORRECT orings.

There are 3 Pieces and I ordered from Dealer, the 3 piece SET (not in stock, they had to order it) took a week and was close but not right! I had already torn it apart and then had to go back and reorder 3 individual orings. THe 3 peice kit was not right partsalthough all dealship documentation indicated it was.
