1st Problem

So my Yellow engine light came on and wouldn't turn off.
I have a 2103 GC V6 Limited.
Next thing, I'm on the highway, I pop it into Sport Mode to overtake, speedo went from 95 down to 60, lost all power, hence limp mode
Drove to the dealership so they could throw it on the machine to find out what was going wrong with the car, mentioned a few things like gaskets etc.
So I got the car back whilst I waited 2 hours later and took off home.
All good, no light!
just as I pulled up at home the Engine light came on again!
I checked the oil, none, it was all over my driveway!
I looked under the car and it was covered in oil!
There's my problem!
So I managed to fill the engine with 2 liters of oil this morning and head back to the stealership!
Same guy from y'day, says to me," I knew you would be back"
Me- whys that
Guy- the mechanic came out half an hour after you left and mentioned there was a leak! Could be the sump plug washer?
So no phone call to let me know the problem!
Anyway it's 2 days away from coming back to me, has anyone else had this problem with oil leak, is it a fault or am I up for the charge, bearing in mind its still under 3 years old.

Re: 1st Problem

Can't believe dealerships allow this to happen when they already knew of a problem. And yet they are also the first to deny they are at fault. SMH.

I'd refuse to leave the dealership without that issue being noted on the service order.
This could affect your engine adversely later, and it might help in convincing FCA that it wasn't your fault.

These are instances where Jeep Cares should be participating actually.

Re: 1st Problem

So I was supposed to go pick it up today, the oil filter housing as well as the sensors have been replaced, however there is a secondary leak which maybe coming from the engine?
The Turd, I mean jeep is still under warranty so they are going to pull it apart today and tmmw to find where the leak is.
I will have the car back tmmw fixed, or I might have to go back and have the head gaskets re done, worse case, it's a $11K job for Jeep and I'll have no car for a week!
Right now I just want to walk away from it and go to something else.
