Engine Mechanical problem
2002 Jeep Wrangler 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 40000 miles
Bought a used jeep recently and noticed oil pressure was not holding after it warmed up. I took it to the shop had it serviced and had an oil pump put on. When I picked it up, it held fine 30-40#. The day after, I took the jeep on a four hour round trip, on the way home the oil pressure dropped to 0 a couple of times. Once I returned home I checked the oil to find it was 2.5 quarts low. It does not leak oil or smoke like it is burning it either. The oil in the engine was dark black and seemed burned so I changed the oil and filter again, After about a week of driving, I had a rod blow. Would the low oil be the cause for the blown rod and is the shop at fault?
have the same problem?
