Take it easy.
most people would not know the difference.
A car enthusiast or mechanic would.
General public would not.

Re: 2011 jeep gc overland blown hemi engine

I own mine for one month and I have 1k
Miles and I have the same issue ( and yes I can tell when the smoke is condensation or bad smoke ).

I decided to wait until my first oil change to make sure they repair the problem.

And yes I went to the dealer a week after to tell them about the problem and the told me that because the cats are new the throw smoke. ( lol I I didn't want to deal with that guy at that time)

Re: 2011 jeep gc overland blown hemi engine

Mine has done it too, so is this normal or should it be reported?

Smile You want perfection???

Find that within yourself. The indignation of the guy who started this thread baffles me. It is a first year vehicle. Anyone who has been around cars and knows anything about them knows that you buy a first run vehicle at your own risk.
That is what warranties are for. They will figure it out and fix it.
I came to my wk2 from a 2007 acura mdx. During the first 30k miles I had to replace a power steering pump, a catalytic converter, and a wheel bearing on the mdx. WTF?
A few years ago I wud never even have considered a Jeep. The wk2 is a beautiful, impressive vehicle, first year bugs (TSBs!!!!) and all.

THANK YOU!


And for all you p[eople saying a head gasket it white smoke, it's not smoke at all, it's STEAM.
As the old addage says, if you don't actually know, STFU!

Re: 2011 jeep gc overland blown hemi engine

98% of people driving vehicles have no clue about this stuff, they should just walk then? Off-white with a blue tint, vs pure white - most drivers aren't going to even think to pay attention to the difference even if it's a gray color, and some won't even realize whether it's pitch black or pure white. This doesn't mean they aren't capable of driving.

The OP has only one thread. Where's this "other thread" stating his engine wasn't blown?

I've seen oil smoke that is "mostly white" in appearance. A lay-person could easily see it as "white" while a technical person would recognize the slight blue tint. The key is the smell, and the OP here did recognize the smell.

And yes, coolant doesn't burn, heheh. It wouldn't be smoke at all.

2012 JGC_Overland
Under 10,000 miles

Seven (7) visits to the dealer about white smoke from the tailpipe. It is not happening at initial start it is happening LONG after the vehicle has been running and is at standard operating temprature (at or just below mid gauge). Sixth incident happened while I was volunteering at the Avon Walk and delivering supplies. Had the back open while unloading water at an aid station and CLOUDS of WHITE SMOKE came pouring out of the tailpipes. This had happened before so I wasnt freaked out but everyone else was screaming for someone to shut off the car cause it was on FIRE!!... I am stating all of this so folks understand the quantity and how startling the smoke was in this situation. So to be clear what I am experiencing with my car IS NOT a condensation issue... the smoke has a odor but it is tough to place. It is WHITE not blue.. not black... not orange with pink poka dots... it is WHITE and comes out in small or large quantities and does not replicate in any discernable fashion. On my 7th visit to the dealer I handed them the keys and said I wasnt taking the car back till they had found something and done some sort of corrective action. On this visit they took the heads off and resurfaced them to ensure they had perfectly level surfaces even though they measured in tolerance. They replaced all the top end gaskets and gave me back my SUV. Roughly two weeks have passed and we have had our 8th incident that I have been able to document on video. I am in the process of seeking replacement with Chrysler/Jeep and I will let you all know how it pans out. If I am happy with the process and terms they put forward then I will work with them... otherwise I guess I will have to lawyer up and take this to task. $50K+ SUV shouldnt be doing this and this is an issue that is happening to frequently to other owners from what I have been reading for the corporate stance to be isolated instances. BTW I am pressing for a new replacement and not seeking some sort of monetary settlement. We love our Jeep products we are just having a bad experience with this one... I hope
