Updated Oil Pan

So since my Stealership wont spend more then an hour trying to diagnose my smoke on startup issue. I've thinking of just buying the new updated oil pan and installing it myself.

Here is the TSB which my jeep does fall under..
http://www.wk2jeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wk2_0900213.pdf

The updated Oil Pan's part number is 68207352AA

Does anyone happen to know the difference between the New updated one and our old one?

Re: Updated Oil Pan

I'm not sure of the difference between old and new oil pan, but to get the "complete" fix you also need to convince your dealer to apply the software update to the PCM (as per TSB).

Shoot a video of the smoke on startup issue and then point out the TSB.

The new oil pan has an updated windage tray which is supposed to help keep oil from working its way up the two rear cylinders, causing the smoke issue.

Re: Updated Oil Pan

Yeah, I know I would be missing the updated software. I also did ask my dealer if I can shoot a video of it and he said no, they have to replicate it...

Thanks guys, maybe I will give Chrysler care a call. If not, I found the best deal on the updated pan and gasket I could find.

Re: Updated Oil Pan

No way you should buy a pan. There are enough Jeep dealers in Jersey that you shouldn't have to travel too far to find one that will work with you.

Re: Updated Oil Pan

Hemi's smoke at startup. Google. I'm thinking there is no issue. I wouldn't touch it yourself. Then, you may screw that part of your warranty.

I had the new oil pan and software update done and my Trailhawk still smokes at startup. Looks like it could be valve guides and seals

Re: Updated Oil Pan

Hey guys,

This may be a stretch, but we know how these Hemi engines push a good amount of oil out of the PCV valve and dumps it back into the intake (unless you have the catch can). I wonder if after shut down, any oil that was left in the intake is pooling at the bottom of the intake and upon restarting the engine, it is being pulled into the cylinders through the intake valves.

Just a thought, what do you all think? I have seen some catch cans with better than 6oz. of oil in the can every couple of weeks.
