Ok here is Missouri it is -6 out this morning. I go out to start my jeep and let it warm up a bit. It was a rough start likeit sound like it didnt want to start or taking its time anyway it sounded a lil different and then smoothed out. Stop to get gas down the street and noticed it was smoking looked under the jeep and seen drops of oil (I think) it drives and sounds fine but smoking bad. Pull back in to my drive way look under the jeep again and now there are oil spots all over the gravel. Did something crack or break from the cold?

  • Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! That's what I'd suggest happened from your description. Could be a burst oil line to a cooler or the oil filter or who knows what else. Thing is, do not drive it until you get it figured out. A serious loss of oil as you're suggesting (could be far worse than you think right now) could completely ruin your engine if you run it any more. This is something you'll have to have taken to a shop to get fixed. And no, I'd not be able to tell you exactly what happened and I doubt anyone else on here could either (with any kind of surety). – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Jan 30 at 21:56
