Jeep is running like crap today

So I only have the Jeep 3 weeks and I've run into my first real problem. Drove the truck late last night and it ran fine and now today the engine is missing. Its running so poor that I cant even drive it home tonight. So late this afternoon I ordered all new oem plugs, wires, 02's, PVC and tomorrow I'm going to change all the fluids and do a complete tune up.

On a bright note though....my OEW chrome replicas came in today so I'm happy for that.

Re: Jeep is running like crap today

Yeah it threw a code late today but my mechanic is off on Mondays and he has my scanner so I have to wait til tomorrow to find out what it is. The truck has 112K on it and I don't have any maintenance records on it. I had planned a full tune up and fluid change, just thought I would get a little more then 3 weeks before I experienced any problems. Now my wife wants to know why I bought a Jeep instead of another Ford.

Re: Jeep is running like crap today

its the 5.7 right? Could be the egr valve? But we need that code. Go out and do the "key dance" Turn the ignition on and off 3x...but on the third time...leave it on to retireve the code

Re: Jeep is running like crap today

EGR, PCV, and cleaning the throttle body should do the trick. If it through a code, I bet the EGR valve is bad. Just my guess.

Re: Jeep is running like crap today

Ok so we came up with a code P1411, something to do with the MDS on cylinder 1. Like I said I only have this truck for 3 weeks and researching this code it seem that using the wrong oil could also cause this problem. I think that is a long shot since with 3 weeks of driving I woudl have thought that if the oil was changing prior to me buying the truck, this problem would have shown up earlier than that. I could be wrong though. If not then I guess I have to pull the intake off and inspect the solenoid? Any other suggestions?

Re: Jeep is running like crap today

I also found evidence of a mouse nest right above cylinder 1, pile of foam. The foam didn't come form the engine cover either, so my next thought is the foam is from under the intake, and if thats the case maybe he chewed through the solenoid wiring. The oil is getting changed anyways but that just seems too easy. I don't have luck like that.

Re: Jeep is running like crap today

if it chewed through wiring...you wouldnt get that code....P1411: Cylinder 1 Reactivation Control Performance. Is the idle quality poor as well?
