Re: Grand Cherokee + sand = FAIL

So glad I have read all this . My Overland built 12 month 2011 did this twice but I was able to restart the jeep and it went away but I have only been on sand twice and not for long [about 500 meters]
I am booked in for a 30,000 km service Wednesday so I will definitely mention this now.
Only other problem I'm having is sometimes the engine winds over but won't start first go. [happened about 6 times last 6 months]
Thanks great info.
Cheers Dave

Hi Dave,

I did have the problem you describe a couple of times with the hemi.
When it happened to me the Jeep was parked on a fairly steep hill. It also blew quite a bit of smoke. I've since discovered there is a TSB covering the smoke on startup issue and apparently it is a problem related to starting on a slope. I haven't bothered to get it done yet as I usually park on level ground. Not sure if this fits description of your problem...

Hopefully you do not have any issues getting the serv 4wd TSB applied!

Re: Grand Cherokee + sand = FAIL

All done
Updates applied and seems good now.
Dealer knew about all the updates without me asking.
I cant fault Prestige motors in Bundaberg .
Cheers Dave

Interesting on the smoke issue mine was given a new short block at 24k to rectify the issue.
