Having problems with your 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee ?
I have a 1996 Grand Cherokee and it just recently started making oil. I started running it about 3 weeks ago after it had been standing for most of the past 6-9 months. I dropped the oil (about 13 qts), changed filter and put in 5 qts yesterday. I went to work today and after about 25 miles the oil showed more than double on the stick. The radiator is fine, the oil looks and smells fine.............any ideas?
The only liquid that can be getting into the crankcase and mixing with the oil is engine coolant. This is caused by a bad head gasket. Driving the truck as it is will cause serious engine damage. Have it looked at by a professional mechanic before driving it again.
