SRT 8 The Red Head is on a distinguished road
Exclamation 2013 WK2 SRT8 will crank, but no start

well, after 6 months and 12,000 klms, The Red Head stopped.
travelling at 100 KPH, on freeway the engine stopped.
no lights, no warning----no power.
5 days in service bay after being towed, the comment for tonight is.
we believe it is a broken throttle body, no parts in Australia or USA.
minimum down time could be as low as 6 weeks, we will get back to you in a couple of days.
meanwhile enjoy our Jeep Compass for a couple of days.


stay tuned, i think this is going to hurt big guy

Damn! my sympathies man, its one thing breaking down, its another having to wait 6 weeks for parts, but look at the bright side, take the compass offroading because owning an SRT, you probably wont be able to do that again and keep us posted

After a week I have had to ring Jeep customer service
They will look into it and call me before end of week

Looks like me and the Compass will be spending some time together

Re: 2013 WK2 SRT8 will crank, but no start

Thanks Scotty
dumb questions for you 1. why did you pull the original off
2. why does the 2014 not fit the 2012.

Jeep in Aus are "seeking a TB for me" quoting 6 weeks wait.

Re: 2013 WK2 SRT8 will crank, but no start

I added a fastman 87mm ported/bored TB

they changed the TB's in 2013 for some odd reason. never got an explanation.

I doubt it will take that long.....
