    I know its a jeep and it leaks, but its to a point where its getting bad.
    Its a 95 G. Cherokee 4.0L. I got the valve cover leak fixed, but there is another leak on the passenger side of the block. Is there something that usually leaks bad on those that I am not aware of?

    The oil sending unit is on that side, the oil filter, and the distributor. It seems to be coming from the oil filter mount. I snug up the filter some and it doesn't fix it, it drips all over the starter and is making a mess, and I don't want the new starter going bad.

    As always, thanks guys!

    oil filter adapter, it is on there with a bolt to the block, I think there is a total of 3 o-rings that seal it.

    Yeah it's my fiancee's jeep. It is the last jeep we will ever own. It always seems I go to fix a leak and it doesn't get fixed unless you put rtv on everything. Ridiculous
