Not sure it will take care of it, but i'd check with the guys at Green Diesel Engineering. If you have to spend money on it, I'd tune it instead if it'll also make the code go away.

That code is on a TSB that requires a reflash, so I gave him the linky and advised him to let his dealership know. FYI - he actually works at the Jeep dealership.

Re: Newb here looking at a 2014 Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel

So from what I can tell from these jeeps 95% of the problems are with the emissions systems so yes a GDE a removal of the Egr and rip the exhaust out with a new one seems to fix most of the issues.... Glad for living in Wisconsin where emissions are not existent. I appreciate the help. I'm sure my service department will get it figured out. We are not a small dealer in fact it was on the lift today we shall see tomorrow what he figured out

Nice and clean underneath for a "cheesehead mobile" that has seen a couple of winters !!

Boy! Those Cowboys did a number on the Packers didn't they!

Where in WI are you located? We retired down to Texas from Wheaton, IL and most definitely destroyed a few brain cells in WI. Especially the old Playboy Club in Lake Geneva and Karl Ratzch's in Milwaukee not to mention the Brat Stop in Kenosha!!!

That thing is immaculate for having seen a couple winters. After 2 chicago winters I can barely find a metal part underneath mine that doesn't have rust on it.

And I keep hearing about this good old "american steel" that is impervious to rust anymore.

Re: Newb here looking at a 2014 Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel

Good luck to you, Drkvampire2001. I am confident the gremlins can be worked out.

Just before my 2014 was replaced, it was fixed at my local dealer in San Jose CA. The service advisor, because I'd been in several times for P20EE, put his best diesel tech on it. Then, while the 2016 replacement vehicle was inbound to me (see the link in my signature), I took the 2014 on a 8,000+ mile road trip through 9 western states. It was completely trouble free.

Ask your dealer to put their best diesel tech(s) on yours. It may help. In the end I took ownership of the 2016 replacement, but someone is going to get a rock solid 2014 whose gremlins have all been exorcised, at a dirt cheap price because of the recall. Mine was white. In fact, my avatar shows the 2014 from that road trip.

Good luck.

Re: Newb here looking at a 2014 Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel

As with Echo7Tango, our local dealership has a couple of very experienced Diesel tech's on staff. After my P20EE SCR cat replacement, I've had zero issues since and am now at 34k miles.

Re: Newb here looking at a 2014 Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel

Darkvamp01, your truck and mine are the exact same. I've done all kinds of stuff to my vehicle and had the CAT replaced too. I will suggest getting the extended warranty since this is such a new platform. My fuel pump blew up and shot pieces through the fuel system. Dealer replaced the entire fuel system which they said was $7k but no cost to me. Check my garage for pics.
