The barcode label machine looks like it needs a calibration too!
Oops! The photos look alike because they are the same compressor. Although the tech claimed to have replaced it, the repair docket states it was replaced and tested, it was in fact not replaced...but it should be soon. Ah well, another two days off the road. Hopefully this is the fix it needs.

That is seriously good news!!!
Mine does it so much less now that it's "winter" here. I guess will be going to them in a few months when it starts up again.

At last you can finally enjoy your Jeep!

Great news Glenn! The pain you went through makes it easier for the rest of us when it happens to us.

Re: Harmonic noise coming from engine...

Cheers Fellas. If it ever happens to you, make sure they immediatly change out the TXV and the compressor before anything else. Whilst it is recommended to replace the evaporator at the same time a) it is buried in the dash and b) two accreditied auto aircon companies told me it was not essential, I risked a butchered dashboard with both companies pointing the finger at the TXV & compressor. Just took a while to get there but all good.

Re: Harmonic noise coming from engine...

How good does it feel???
Our CRD was only off the road for 2 and a bit weeks while a new fuel rail was sourced from the US - not a fair swap getting a Triton mine truck in the meantime.....
Great feeling getting back in at the dealers and driving the Jeep again with all OK.
All the best for many many K's of trouble free experience - you've earned it.

Re: Harmonic noise coming from engine...

I know what you mean!! TXV change alone did nothing to fix it...so I suppose you can rule that out of the equation in my case. A new compressor and BINGO!! But who knows whether the compressor change was carried out coupled with new refridgerant and a proper 30 minute vacuum? Having took notice of you and other experts, my understanding is this is vital. Anyhow, I've got great cooling and no noise so under the bonnet is now STRICTLY out of bounds!!.......(unless Father Xmas has a little present from Germany for me)

No No No Glenn
if whatever little present you fit somehow creates an overpressure in the fuel rail and the sensor pops your CRD will shut down immediately regardless of whatever your vehicle is doing (treated as catastrophic apparently AND SCARY) and it will not be able to be restarted.
Lots of messing around........add whatever circumstances.........
You will then be told to replace the sensor, the fuel rail has to be replaced and there are none in Australia (unless they bought in extra with mine). Your vehicle will then be parked with the dealer for some indeterminate period.
My recommendation - Leave the engine alone for the time being and enjoy what you've got - it's plenty!!
After our recent experience with Jeep Assist, RACQ, Chrysler Jeep Aus, and a mid NSW dealer, a little present from Germany is definitely NOT on my list at the moment.
