Is it possible to have a blown head gasket if oil is clean and not loosing any coolant any where. On a 2000 JGC 4.7 engine have milky oil in the oil cap only.Replaced oil cap and o-ring. Replaced PCV and hose. At first thought was a head gasket but not showing any of the signs. Do have a little smell of coolant in cabin. Rad is full. Oil is clean. I thank that some how steam is getting there and doing this not sure though.Thanks

Because of heat/cold, it's possible that it may just be condensation on the cap.I have seen this happen on other vehicles. A coolant smell (sweet smell) in the passenger cabin probably means a small leak on the heater core.Keep an eye on your coolant levels and your oil. Does your exhaust smell like antifreeze? A blown head gasket doesn't always allow coolant to mix with oil, it may be forced into the cylinder and burned with the fuel. Good luck!

Jul 29, 2010 (12:15 pm)
i have replaced my battery and alternator and still my battery keeps going dead. What can cause the battery not to charge right.
First I had an alternator that was over charging up to 19. I replaced it then went back to auto zone had them check the battery and alternator again. My battery was junk so I replaced it right there at the store Had them run a check and the alternator tested bad. So I then replaced the alternator again making sure we checked to make sure it was good before I took it home. Now I should have a good battery and alternator. However after replacing the alternator again. I started up the jeep and let it run. Well it died and couldn't restart it. The battery was dead. I hooked up a battery charger and let it charge. After the battery was charged. I ran my jeep only to have the battery light come on again and the battery to keep draining.
What can be going on here?

You have to pull the steering wheel and tighten the bolts inside. Chilton shows you how.

Check the ground. Sounds like you have a bad one.

I concur with believing this is a ground issue. Trace your ground cable from the battery to the sheet metal where it attaches. Remove the bolt, grind the sheet metal until you have bare metal, reattach the ground wire and spray the bare metal with a clear corrosion spray.
Also check/clean the ground from the engine block to the body.
It may look perfectly fine but it most likely isn't. You cannot tell a corroded ground by just looking at the cable.

When I attempt using the a/c, it barely cools and the compressor clutch chatters. Why?
