Etc trouble

I have been getting the ETC warning light along with a second or two engine shutdown since this car was new.I thought it was something I did wrong and to tell the truth I ignored it until 10 minutes ago when I decided to post on this forum.I looked up what the warning light indicated and now looks as if I better call the service dept.Anyone else having this issue?Can they fix it? I have about 3500 miles on 2011 WK2 Hemi and I don't run it hard.

Re: Etc trouble

Before you take it in, take a look inside of it and see if it is caked with oil residue on the back of the blade. If it is take it in and see what they have to say considering your under warranty. I'd check your electrical connections also.

Then clean it and get a catch can after they "fix" it.

Re: Etc trouble

It's blow-by from the PCV system.

If left unchecked it will look like this and considering it is a drive-by-wire system it will have an issue.
