Good to get the a/c going when the car is parked in the sun too. Specially if you can start it via your phone.

Hi All, I think the point to take into consideration is not how much highway driving you do, but the type of driving and the rev range of the engine. At highway cruising if the revs are low, the desired temperature will not be reached, as opposed to driving in a lower gear, thus raising the rev range to increase temperature. One such example would be to use the paddles to select a gear - say 5/6 (depending on rev range), and drive for a certain distance - but avoid 'redlining'.

Oh C'mon, just take a look & drive of our '14 GC's to realise we're owners of one pretty cool 4by!
I love every bit of my '14 GC 3.6 Overland (even more now i'm hearing all this Diesel filters, additives whatever malarkey)

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Liked the look of the SRT so copied that. Taking the lead from Webber, I got 3M to do it. Cost $150/ 2 hours and looks as good as a paint job.

Got one more procedure to do to the lower grille then thats it.

Did you have to remove the grille facia to rap it with the 3m product.

Good article, thanks. The article talks about the importance of the highway run after the warning of the filter being almost full. Why then doesn't the Jeep give a warning that the filter is nearly full? Better still, why don't these things have a user control to allow regeneration at any time, rather than rely on a warning - or in Jeep's case, the lack of warning and straight into limp mode? Its all too late now but I wouldn't have touched a diesel had I known all this. It is such a shame. I was planning a 300km off road adventure in December but that is out of the question now, there is no way I would take my family that far off the beaten track and all the irregular speeds that go with it with this hanging over my head.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Adblue is used to reduce NOx in the emission, Diesel engine is volumetrically fuel efficient as it can run very lean however the by product of running lean is NOx which is a major cause of acid rain.

Adblue is used in Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) to reduce NOx emission, please note the injection of Adblue is post DPF.

So directly Adblue does not help the regeneration process with the DPF, however the process of reducing NOx emission without using SCR (eg amount of EGR and elevation of the temp of the NOx trap which is part of the exhaust system) does increase the loading of the DPF hence more regenerations are required.

So if SCR is a good thing why don't we get it? Since currently vehicles sold in Aus do not have to comply with EURO V emission standard it all comes down to cost. The SCR components are actually more complex than one might imagine, eg Adblue has to be kept From memory -5 to 50 deg C so the system has to be heated. Dare I say in this country it has to be cooled also! Another example on saving on cost, the current Diesel engined Hyundai Santa Fe does not even have DPF I can only image it is done to save a few dollars.

While we are on the topic of DPF it is also the reason for the very specific oil that is required. One of the ACEA C3 requirement is when the oil is burnt it develops very little ash, as it can prematurely fill the DPF.

My 2 cents.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Thanks for that SXR200. But if its not adblue, do you know what the additive referred to in the article above is?
Some models, across a wide range of manufacturers, use a different type of DPF which relies on a fuel additive to lower the ignition temperature of the soot particles.
The additive is stored in a separate tank next to the fuel tank and is automatically mixed with the fuel whenever you fill up. Only very small quantities are used so a litre of additive should treat around 2800 litres of fuel – enough to cover 25,000 miles at 40mpg. It lasts about 70000 miles and is replenished during a service – at extra cost.
Thanks,
Russell

Left the beast with Exotic Kustoms Exotic Kustoms and they did it. Asked to make sure they would get in between the different grille inserts ..... and they did. As said, just like a paint job.!!

I think they are referring to the use of Eolys additive (more info here Eolys™ Fuel-Borne Catalyst for diesel particulates abatement: a key component of an integrated system) to lower the natural particle combustion temperature to assist the regeneration. I am only aware of the PSA group (ie Peugeot Citroën) using this system. However both Wynns and Liqui Moly produce a fuel additive (mixed into the fuel not a separate system) that claims to achieve something similar.
