    Who here owns a Jeep Wrangler?

    Well, as of yesterday I do. I got a Jeep Wrangler Sport 2006. I'm a Jeep "Nooby" if that's the right term.

    I tried to join a Jeep forum last night - it said it'd send me a confirmation email but I haven't seen it yet.

    This is the one: http://www.jeepforums.org/jeep-wrangler-forum-f38.htm

    I have some questions for other Jeepers out there.

    We currently own a 2005 wrangler and it's our 4th jeep. I have had nothing but the best of luck with them. If you have any questions please feel free to ask away.

    My Stepson pointed out that on top of my engine there's a round rubber thingie with a rubber hose coming out - going somewhere. He showed how a very small amount of oil was seeping through and would eventually get on other stuff. He said this is a common problem with Jeeps. He used to work at an Auto Parts store and is usually pretty knowledgeable about car mechanics.
    Are you familiar with this? Can it be cleaned with alcohol and maybe sealed with high temp permatex?

    What you're seeing is most likely the breather from the valve cover to the intake tube. It vents excess pressure back into the intake stream. Sounds like you need to replace the rubber grommet around the breather. A small amount of black RTV might be a decent stopgap.

    I do. 2004 Wrangler Unlimited. Love it.





    Prior to that, I owned a 2001 Cherokee Sport 4 door, and before that was a 1994 Cherokee Sport 2 door. All had the 4.0L inline six engine. Don't let anyone tell you they aren't reliable. The '94 had over 150,000 trouble free miles on it when I traded it. When I bought it, there was a used Cherokee with the inline six on the lot with 285,000 miles.

    Not familiar with Jeeps, but with cars in general. If it's leaking, Permatex is a cheap but bad solution to a fluid leak. Dig into it more and find out what the real problem is, and fix it the right way!

    Sold mine this year and miss it badly. Think I posted it in your other thread. Congrats on the new toy! I call stock jeeps "barbie jeeps"...don't really have a term for newbies though

    Love JEEPS. The only way to go. I'm now looking for a Wrangler to buy and add to the group.

    I'm a Jeeper, but I'm fairly new to the club myself. Bought mine last January.

    92 4 cyl 5 speed that the wife n kids have tired with out success to beat to death.... BTY a good place for accessories is Quadratec they have any part for any year, and have a good staff of people that know more about your jeep than your mechanic and have been 100% over the years.
