Sounded like a troll, read three pages and moved on.

Re: "Other forum" EcoDiesel engine failure

No one should ever buy a diesel. One failed on the Internet.

Re: "Other forum" EcoDiesel engine failure

Here's the forum post. you can read for yourselves. Not enough details to really determine anything, though. BTW, not a troll, C175. I have my own ecodiesel Summit, my seventh jeep, and am a cheerleader in general. Just thought it was interesting to see other situations. Sorry.

Re: "Other forum" EcoDiesel engine failure

Also, that "other forum" has a piss poor attitude in general. Most of the posters are bitching about their DEF, check engine lights, etc. I have repeatedly posted to counter that on topics like "trouble free diesel", etc. And, have made points to them exactly like Wiz, regarding the minority of problems represented on the forums in contrast to the thousands of great jeeps out their. The general value of this forum in general is huge in comparison.

Yeah, I don't go there very much anymore. The atmosphere "over there" is very anti-diesel in general. You'd think the diesel were a Prius or something with all the negative comments it receives. Very odd that there's so little acceptance in general. I've even fought the same battle on the JeepCherokee forums.

This guy's engine is probably hosed, doubt he's a troll, but like others have said, very little to go on. I wouldn't be surprised if his fuel pump went. The 3.0 is reliable in general. A few fail, >99.9% will live very long lives.
