Engine staring issues

Have never had an issue then after driving 1.5hrs and letting it sit while at a party it just kept cranking. Here is a video I took earlier. Anyone know what to do? The power train warranty is 100k right?

Re: Engine staring issues

Seeing posts like this remind me how old I am. It never would have dawned on me to make a video of my car not starting.

Warranty is 60,000 on mine. Might have been different in different years. Check your owner's manual or warranty booklet that came with your Jeep.


That is of course unless you bought an extended service contract.

Powertrain Warranty depends on your model year. For MY2016+ WK2 it is 5 year/ 60k miles. Prior to 2016 it was 5 year/100k miles. In 2016 they hacked it down 40k miles

Re: Engine staring issues

Thank you for the links. So what am I looking at and is it covered by warranty? I was thinking maybe bad fuel so I'm running it empty

Have you changed your fuel filters?

Re: Engine staring issues

I think gas was pumped into the diesel. How serious is this? It was probably 1/4 a tank or so. I don't have any way to really validate except that I've been smelling gas a little in the vehicle. I'd like to say that I would never do that, and in my mind I specifically remember grabbing the diesel handle, but what do I know. It's having issues starting so I have to just deal with the reality of it.

I do currently have two new fuel filters I haven't installed yet. So my question is if gas was mixed in with the diesel what should I do? It seems to run just fine once it's started. Since not a whole lot was in there should I just go to the pump and top it back off with diesel? Right now I have about 5/8ths of a tank. I'm debating if I should just run it down much lower then put more diesel in to get max dilution or just add some now?

I did put a complete bottle of diesel treatment fluid in it. What happens to the current filters if a little gas goes through them? Since it's not something being circulated but rather burned off I really don't see the harm in just letting it go as is since at worst there wasn't much that was put in there to start with.

Re: Engine staring issues

If the plan is to add diesel I would add it now and every time there is room for a few more gallons. If that is the issue, keep doing it until the car begins to start without any problems.

I'm not saying it is a good plan or if you would need to have the tank drained to avoid causing damage. You might want to check with the dealer or a diesel technician.

Re: Engine staring issues

I've been trying to find documentation on how to drain the tanks. Searching youtube for videos as well. Haven't had much luck yet.

Re: Engine staring issues

Does pulling out a fuel filter automatically start draining the tank or is there some sort of valve that's preventing that?
