2014 Jeeps blows blue smoke at startup

If anybody has experienced seeing blue smoke plume out of the tail-pipe after starting your 2014 Jeep, there is now a TSB to fix this (Just released today):

TSB NUMBER: 09-002-13

Which can be viewed at: http://wk2jeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wk2_0900213.pdf

Allegedly after idling facing uphill followed by a cool down.
Hit it once, that alone not enough to mess with the issue.

I wonder if you can trigger this by creeping up a steep incline?

I'm Curious, mine will do it sitting overnight in a level garage. Just started it at 12500 miles.

Have you checked that your crank case isn't over filled?

Re: 2014 Jeeps blows blue smoke at startup

I have this issue too...and it happens even when not facing up hill. Doesn't happen all of the time...but it only happens after jeep has cooled down and it's only one puff of smoke at the very first moments of startup. Smoke precedes the vapor from condensation in the mufflers.

Chrysler has ordered new parts and i should be getting them installed this week.
