Re: EVIC message - 4WD not available transmission overheated

Thanks. I'll probably wait while they do it and browse with my iPad.

Re: EVIC message - 4WD not available transmission overheated

The differential and axle (I assume one half shaft) were replaced today. Now comes the waiting and watching for the dreaded message. Hopefully the problem has been solved.

Re: EVIC message - 4WD not available transmission overheated

Well, so far so good. What we are pleased with is that it seem to drive a lot better. Shifts are smoother, everything seems to feel better.

MPG around town has gone up a bit as well. On current tank - all local driving - we are at 22.4 mpg - which is pretty good IMO. On next fill will check actual to the computer as it can be "off" by more than a bit (and of course there is fill consistency as well).

Just an update. No further warning messages so the fix worked. Will be Las Vegas and Phoenix with the jeep in the next two weeks with temps about 95 or more so that will be the final test.

Re: EVIC message - 4WD not available transmission overheated

Another update. Yesterday we ran the transmission temp up to 196, higher than it has ever been. Also ran the coolant temp to 228.

Circumstances. 19 mile trip up the mountain to Pikes Peak. Transmission ran fine.

Today we travelled from Colorado Springs to Green River UT via Aspen going over the Independence Pass and Continental Divide at 12,000 ft. on Hwy 82. Transmission got to 170 and coolant just a bit over 200.

Glad to hear everything is going well. Thanks for the updates.

So I take it you left the moho behind this time?
