Re: 2014 EcoDiesel White Smoke Under Hood

I have also had this happen a few times. Well my wife did. The most recent time however it happened while I was driving. And it only ever happens while the heater is on. It has a faint chemically/diesel smell. However the dealership couldn't recreate the issue. We have around 45k miles on it. .

Re: 2014 EcoDiesel White Smoke Under Hood

Hi All,

I experienced and posted about this exact issue back in May after my CAT was replaced. Here's the link to the old thread: MIL & P20EE again & again & again...

The reason it's hard to re-create, at least for me is that it only occurs and is noticeable during regen. In my case it was a similar issue mentioned earlier in this thread which was a clamp at the DEF injector not being properly re-installed and allowing the exhaust, which during regen turns into a white smoke as the DPF soot is burned off, to be blown out under the car. I noticed it initially when getting off of the highway and sitting at a stop light. I could see the smoke wafting around my car. The next time it happened I took a video, showed my dealer, asked them to do a forced re-gen in the shop which they did and they were able to observe and solve the issue that day. Only challenge is that once they do the forced regen, the system gets too hot to work on for a while so the repair will take a bit longer than you might expect as they wait an hour or so for it to cool off.

Re: 2014 EcoDiesel White Smoke Under Hood

This thread has been amazingly helpful. I have been battling the dealership over this issue for years. I am constantly told "It can not be recreated" so they tell me they reset things ... blah blah blah. And it happens again. I even have this video and they still couldn't fix it. The white smoke gets very thick at times, especially after I have been towing. I have a the ecodiesel Grand Cherokee Summit and they have just looked at me like I am crazy. Thank you again for the help. I am going in next week with the details from this thread!
