Good luck with your dpf issues. Here is another thread I found with someone else having this issue in the states:
2014 Grand Cherokee Diesel
I will bring up the TSB when I visit the dealer.

As for the pics, they were hosted on some free image site that turned into pay-ware and I haven't bothered with it. I think I have some pics on another computer but I haven't gotten around to uploading as I have been busy with work all around the country. People love the look of ma' Jeep wherever I go though.

Try Photobucket, it is truly free
I set an account up for people on here to use, so they can just email the pics to it, and receive the link to post.

Talking to the Ozzy Park Service Manager today, I quizzed about the 18-018-14 TSB and any official fix for the DPF issues. I was told that the TSB expands the range of acceptable parameters from the DPF sensors, as when vehicles entered limp mode the DPF was actually still flowing freely.

Apparently it is available to any vehicle (in the context of MY14) however it sounded like that it would only be applied if the owner experienced problems... at this stage anyway. I've now been offered it, and I'm still weighing up the option as I write. If I had a trip lined up I wouldn't bat an eyelid... it'd be done.

So it sounds like it's there if you want it... you just might have to push a bit to receive it.

Cheers,
Steve

PS: I'm pretty sure that I called it as a sensor problem

Re: Is DPF issue for 2014 CRD fixed now?

Good info Steve.... I have also asked Willx if he can find any info on this TSB. Would be interesting to hear more about the technical changes.

Makes sense they would only apply it if you had seen the problem. I wonder if they can check the EVIC for previous regens at service time, if they are working fine then I don't see any need for the fix. If there have been none I'd be worried.

Re: Is DPF issue for 2014 CRD fixed now?

Have yet to take delivery of my new GC (it's on the way, somewhere) but these stories are a big worry. For those with problems now, fingers crossed that they can get on top of it soon. Good luck.

I wonder what a new dpf is worth- I can just imagine, just out of warranty, need a new dpf, kiss thousands of dollars goodbye...... Not good.
I know of someone with a Nissan who has been quoted $7k to replace his clogged dpf!

Bring on a dpf bypass kit somebody, pleeeaaase!

Mine will be driven 99% in the country anyway!

I also hope those with the issue get a resolution soon Futuresystem. But take heart. We are 68kms off 20,000kms and have never had the issue thus far (and I don't carry a piece of wood in the back like Webber does. )

My view is that there are so many of these cars in the country that if lots of us have dpf issues there will be a growing aftermarket for things like dpf deletes, or better performance dpf systems. Along with lots of other aftermarket products. The aftermarket has been slow to get going so far, but there are a lot of customers with these cars.

Now the USA have this motor, we should see more choices for aftermarket mods for the CRD.

Re: Is DPF issue for 2014 CRD fixed now?

I wonder if the DPF issue can be related to particular usage pattern? I have had my GC for nearly 5 months (Sept 2013 built) and my car spent most of its life in the inner suburb of Sydney including daily commute into the Sydney CBD. My fuel consumption is bad because of the constant start/stop and crawling at low speed and it is possibility the worse case scenario for the DPF. The car is on a constant diet of BP Ultimate and I switched over to Mobil 1 Formula ESP @ 2,500km. Yet I have not had any issue with the DPF, I am often surprised to see there is no smoke what so ever when I take off from the lights (especially at night when exhaust smoke is very apparent from the headlights). I can smell the burn off process every now and then even on short-ish commute.

I have to say I am heavy footed and I use WOT (sorry figure of speech here, as there is no throttle in a diesel) very often after the engine had warmed sufficiently (engine oil temp of > 80 deg C) and maybe that is what is needed?

I have seen many many cars being tested / tuned on chassis dyno and it does not take much time (seconds) for the exhaust manifold (hence the DPF) to get red hot under a "WOT" condition. Maybe frequent WOT say 0-60kph is enough for the DPF to burn off?
