I have grand cherokee 1999, for last one month I have found that there is some oil when I park it after a drive. It seems that the oil is not leaking continuously but when I drive and then park the car, for some time the oil will drip to the size of two ponies, and then it will stop (or decrease). I also have noticed that the pressure gauge is gradually decreasing and now it has almost reached 40, early it used to stay at 80. There is something near (a feet away to the back) the engine oil filter, which my mechanic says that it is pressure sensor and it has gone bad and must be replaced. The engine is mostly covered with oil and dirt from the day I purchased it but it was not dripping. How can I find and fix this leak and is it safe to drive with the pressure gauge on 40 or less? Thank you very much.
have the same problem?
