    2000 Grand Cherokee Oil Leak

    I have a 2000 Grand Cherokee Limited with a V8 4.7L that is leaking oil out of the front part of the motor. Looks like its leaking right out of the oil filter area, but its not because of the oil filter. Any suggestions? Is there a plug or something in the front of the motor that I should check?

    The power steering pump is on top of the oil filter, have you checked to see if its the power steering pump or line is the source of the oil leak?

    I know its an oil leak because its using oil. But the power steering pump is also leaking. Could the lines be bad?

    Possibly, however, i would de-grease the area first and re-check the area where it's leaking to isolate the source.
