I reckon you'd have a case under the ACL too. It just depends as to whether you can get it classified as a "major failure" which I have no idea about. Would be worth contacting your states authority and see advice they can give: Consumers and the ACL

Hi GQTRBO,

Well mine has now been at the dealers for a week aslo and still no resolution...They have sent out an TAC (technical Assist
Case) to Fiat Chrysler...In other words it has them stumped...Last I heard is that they were trying a number of suggestions from Fiat Chrysler ..Probably going down the same path as yours....random replacement (aka guessing)

Yeah I don't know where to go from here. Car drives really well and is nice to drive. They just can't fix this! It's not a major fault to I can't see that happening. However, if I sold it no one buy it because of it!

Not a major fault??...Could be in over time...The way the injectors work with the double squirt to quieten the diesel engine knock of old if the engine is misfiring on some cylinders could cause problems with the DPF or place excessive strain on pistons, con rods etc..I'm not a diesel mechanic but modern high torque diesel engines are pushing the max so you don't need much to go wrong to cause expensive damage..Well that's the way I think...Regardless, in the 21st centuary hi-tech new vehicles shouldn't have this sort of problem and you shouldn't have to put up with it and Fiat Chrysle has to come up with a fix....Got me wondering whether the problem isn't the double injection..eg one or the other but not both missing in the cycle

Also this has just been posted on Ausjeepoffroad..Seems we're not on our own with this problem:

Chris V has just replied to a thread you have subscribed to entitled - WK2 Diesel Rough Idling - in the Grand Cherokee Drivers forum of AUSJEEPOFFROAD.COM - AJOR.

This thread is located at:
http://www.ausjeepoffroad.com/forum/showthread.php?t=127531&goto=newpost

Here is the message that has just been posted:
***************
Had the new fuel pump fitted yesterday made no difference to the problem, the dealer booked the car in for three days next month to go over it, will give me a loaner.
Also the button that operates the tailgate window failed, needs to be ordered from the US 4-6 weeks wait.
I'm glad it's a company lease car, I hate to think what this would cost if it was out of warranty.

Re: CRD MY2014 Engine Noisy When Cold - & Auto Gear Shift Jerky

Been a while since I've posted on my MY14 WK2 GC's cold start extremely rough idle (shakes the car & sometimes a loud clacking sound) so:

Well it's now been 9 weeks at the dealer's workshop & not fixed yet...Latest is they are replacing the glow plugs...Would have thought that faulty glow plugs would have shown up in the OBDC but no error codes are logged....This is the problem the Autotechs are having

Re: CRD MY2014 Engine Noisy When Cold - & Auto Gear Shift Jerky

Seems another owner may also have this issue, from the info thread:

Now most recently the car would also shake quite noticeably after ignition for a few seconds. It used to be very smooth.

To me this reminds me of the Grand Cherokee recall last year but I specifically asked the dealer if the recall update has been applied and they said it has. We also took delivery in Feb 2014 so surely it would have been applied at the factory as well.

It's unfortunate these problems aren't always reproducible at the dealership.

Anyone have any thoughts about these?

Get them to check the EGR diaghram for leaks or EGR valve being stuck and iff they say it would through a code mine didn't so tell them to check it anyway might not be the problem but could be and if it isn't you've crossed one more thing off

Re: CRD MY2014 Engine Noisy When Cold - & Auto Gear Shift Jerky

Hey Peko, I suspect an EGR leak too, is that what they found with yours? Did it also rough idle at start?

Yes the symptoms weren't quite as bad as yourse but were the same the diaghram on the EGR was split but didn't set off any fault codes and they plugged into the ECM and couldn't see anything wrong but there was

Re: CRD MY2014 Engine Noisy When Cold - & Auto Gear Shift Jerky

Ok, I haven't had the problem, my CRD is arriving soon. Just staying on top of known issues.

There are a few guys over on AJOR who have been struggling with this one, I thought EGR into the cylinders at cold temps could cause this, but no one has verified it yet.

Re: CRD MY2014 Engine Noisy When Cold - & Auto Gear Shift Jerky

I spoke with a my good friend that works at a Jeep dealer in Italy.
He had a similar problem and technicians VM told him to change the engine RPM sensor.
Problem .......... this is located in between the engine and trasmission ........ and for change it the transmission must be removed. ...................the defect has been fixed!

I hope this can help you
