Have you changed those "O" rings on the piece that the oil filter goes on?

Under heavy load I would get a little bit of oil hitting the exhaust pipe and it would smoke like hell. I didn't smell oil, but I sure saw it.

I haven't change those "O" rings yet, but I was going to do that before tackling the rear main seal!!!

I get oil splatters on my back hatch. The only thing I can find that needs topping off is my NP242. I think it's the front seal leaking. I have it I just need to change it.

My valve cover gasket is leaking like no tomorrow which causes a smell every once and awhile. But my jeep isnt losing much oil as I just checked when I changed it.
