Re: Predator - MDS OFF Question
With the MDS active, at least on the earlier (~05-08), the RPM with the MDS on is about 75-100 RPM higher than when not in MDS mode. In MDS mode the converter clutch is also not engaged.
On yours, Pops17, I still say somethings fishy. As far as the dealer putting the right oil in....not always true. When I bought mine from the Jeep dealer they were proud to announce that they had done me a "favor" and changed the oil for me before I picked it up. Only problem was they put 10W-30 in it, as indicated on the service slip. Since I own another Hemi vehicle with MDS, I know how it should work. On the WK it barely worked at all until I changed the oil. Just think of the $$$ they could make off some unsuspecting sole that comes in complaining about poor fuel economy, or the MDS doesn't appear to be working. I am still not sold on their "explanation" to you. Sorry, just my opinion. I've seen enough of the dealer BS on these forums to know that they're not all on the up and up, and in a lot of cases not very knowledgeable on the products they sell and service. Can't wait to see the final outcome on yours.
