    Jeep's can beep, creep, even go do deep, but they sometimes like to WEEP! :icon_lol:
    A first I thought this was a power steering leak or weep....

    Hmmm...that looks like oil to me, not ATF+4 from power steering...
    Oh well..out comes the LPS, no touch, just spray.. guaranteed super cleaner!

    Cleaned area quick & should be able to get a better idea soon...
    Valve cover gasket leak?

    Where does your jeep weep? Transfer case like me too?

    So far the only seals NOT leaking on my KJ are the 4 axle seals. Everything else leaks... Pinions, tcase, front main, rear main, valve covers, got it all.

    Just changed the tranny fluid or the pan would be leaking also. Seems to be holding for now though.

    04 high pressure line for the PS weeps just a bit, nothing to worry about and ay 220,000 miles she is allowed to
    The 03 and 05 have no leaks at all, ( well until tomorrow morning now that I've mentioned that they don't

    Quite a few very minor leaks. I'll find out soon if my tranny pressure sensor still leaks now that I've changed the o-rings. That was the only one that annoyed me since it would make it to the ground. PS hose had weeped since I bought this thing back in 07. Hasn't gotten any worse and never have to add fluid.

    dude... my one car thinks it's a news media outlet: if it bleeds it leads.

    either that it thinks it's british. (if there ain't no oil under 'em, there ain't no oil in 'em!) :D

    Fairly certain my rear seal is leaking, I fixed my leaking valve covers, power steering hoses are weeping and rack is leaking, right rear axle seal weeps, trans pan weeps...

    At least weeping stops once the weep is clogged with fluid. Doesn't look pretty but it means I don't have to deal with it quite yet. What's killing me is the rear seal leak and the power steering leak.

    I think my rear main is weepy. Has been since it was 4 years old. I think the high pressure PS line is bit damp, don't need to add fluid for years. I think that's it, probably jinxed it. :D

    It's 20 degrees here and too cold to look for weeps. I don't see any "weepy spots" in the snow. If it gets any colder I will be the weeper......LOL

    Dry as a bone except for the aforementioned PS hose...I'm just really lucky so far at 97,900 miles...

    Power steering pressure line is damp.. fluid level hasnt dropped, so no harm. Maybe minor seepage from something in the area of the rear main/front trans pump seal. It isn't forming droplets so, again, no harm.

    My right side valve cover gasket LEAKS. I have a new gasket set.. just I crashed the Jeep before I could put them on. It's like 20 degrees outside, who am I kidding? I aint putting those gaskets on til spring!

    If you get a warm day, it's not that bad of a job...if the driver side gasket isn't leaking, leave changing it until Speedo season...

    No leaks (knock wood). And the best part is that my Jeep has not been leaking money lately. My A/C compressor would have been a hit if I didn't have the warranty, though.

    Mine just had its A/C bearing crap out. Seized up just about. Pulled that compressor out of the way, a little mechanic's wire to hold it up and away from the new, shorter belt.... voila! Leave til spring or summer when I feel like addressing it.

    Speedo season? you clearly have not seen my gut... it would hide the top half of said speedo. Let's go with motorcycle season... when I drive the Jeep less anyhow. :) Far less of a disturbing visual on that one.

    My power steering line has always weeped, never had to add much fluid to it. Gets worst when it's cold outside really notice it on the ground. But summer never really notice the weeping on the ground it's always on the line.
