Check the timing, adjust if necessary. If that doesn't help, the cams should be checked.
This is my 4th post and I have a '99 Jeep Grand Cherokee 2.8L (V6).
I have the same problem. The first few times it was run and it was fine, I took it to get an oil change at a local carwash. Once I was done with the oil change, I decided to drive it home. I started it, had some good throttle response, no problems, and then, I was driving with it wide open (my mistake) and heard a metallic pinging noise. I pulled to the side of the road and got out to take a look under the hood and I saw the engine cover had popped up. There was a thin line of oil dripping down the engine cover from the engine block. The car was in drive, I didn't want to take my foot off of the gas as I thought if I took my foot off the gas the car would stall out. The engine was running, I didn't think it would stop. I figured it was just me and the oil and my mistake.
Since I had driven around all day with the oil dripping from the engine, I drove it home.
When I arrived home, I went into my garage and shut the door to keep the garage warm for a few hours. The next day, I decided to take the cover off of the engine, since my friends house was just around the corner, I knew he wouldn't mind. I couldn't believe how much oil was dripping out. After taking the cover off, I saw that there were a few other engine parts that were drenched with oil. It didn't take me long to realize that I was the guy that let the engine leak while I was changing the oil. Not only did I let the oil leak, but I went out and drivin it like I had no idea what was under the hood and left it to soak while I did something else.
I'm going to say this agn, I had one of the original oil dipstickers that came with the car, and while I was checking the oil I put it in the cup with the oil I was checking, and guess what was dripping out? Drip, drip, drip. I have no idea how much oil I let leak, it's hard to tell how much was left on the engine and what parts of the engine got saturated with the oil. I know that after I went home, I had to drive around for a good 10-20 minutes with a soaked seat, rearview mirror, and dash before I could go to bed. Needless to say, I got an oil change done the next morning.
This brings me to a question I've been trying to answer for a while now: what do you think? Was I a bad person? Was I a bad, dumb, careless person? Or am I just an ass for messing up like that? Do I feel bad? I don't, because I was a kid and I didn't know any better. If I would have read this list, I would have known what not to do, and I would have never done anything like this agn.
My friend has always been a smart guy and always thinks he's smarter than me, so he was shocked when I told him. I was talking to him about the whole "why I didn't do this or that" and that's when it really came to light that I have had a lot of bad habits and bad choices as a kid. I guess we're all like that, or maybe that's just me.
Do you have bad habits and/or bad choices when it comes to driving or anything else? What are some of your worst transgressions?
In the world of automotive restoration, it is a constant struggle to stay on top of the ever-changing automotive industry. After reading another article about one of the largest automotive restoration and design firms in the country, I know I'm not alone in my quest to stay on top of the ever-changing, ever-expanding and ever-changing automotive industry.
The article on the website Automechanika sd this:
"Innovative Design Solutions has a team of artists, engineers, fabricators, and designers that design vehicles that are unique in terms of functionality and design. The company does both restoration and vehicle design. It is a company with a lot of passion and experience in both. The firm was founded by brothers Rick and Mark Tregillus, as the duo grew up around the automotive world. Their father, a race car driver, gave them the early education and inspiration to build and race their own vehicles.
The company also sponsors and sponsors race teams to help reach a greater level of success. It also has a team of artists that create some really interesting concept vehicles for clients."
In all honesty, I don't think I've ever actually sd that I'm a good driver. I know my bad habits, and I'm not even talking about the usual bad driving that people do here in the U.S. No, this is something else. It's about driving habits that drive others crazy. Maybe you've been driven crazy by someone who is a bad driver?

When I first started driving, I didn't know that many people would drive like crazy. Now, here in the suburbs, most people drive as though it were going to last forever, and they are doing it right in the middle of the afternoon, when it is still light out. They never take the damn breaks. They never slow down for any reason. They don't wt for any traffic.
When the other drivers see them out in traffic, they speed up a bit and begin trying to pass them. It's always someone making an aggressive attempt at passing them.
When there is a stop sign, I see the other guy not just take a quick glance to see if there is anybody coming, or if it's safe to stop, but they just slam the brakes on and stop without checking to make sure. It's usually because they think they know that they can beat the traffic, so they're just going to go out in front of it. They don't care what happens to the people who are just getting out in front of them.
I don't know if it's good driving that gets me crazy, because
