Re: JEEP still having ALOT of problems

yeah bro it is lawyer time...don't mess around. If they want to play games, get a third party involved that knows their $hit!!! AND there is no way pin-holes in the exhaust would cause all of this. I had a header leak in my 02' 4.7 dakota and all it did was cause a slight loss of power and a funky noise. I had this for over a month and the truck never stalled (and this a was a lot more than a couple pin-holes)...took it into the dealer with 65K miles on it and 5 years and they fixed it under powertrian warranty.

Good luck...such a shame for such a gorgeous JEEP!!!

Re: JEEP still having ALOT of problems

so last night my car just shut off while I was on the freeway! I was cruising at 65 and all of the sudden the dash went black, engine off and the stereo stayed on. Just like when you turn off your car and havent opened the door yet. WTF? Ryan, Is this similar to what has happened when yours shuts off? Any info is appreciated...what is the status with your bad boy??? Lawyer help?

Many guys have inadvertently hit the ignition key with their knee.

Re: JEEP still having ALOT of problems

I know but they fixed that issue in the 08...plus I am 6'1 and I sit as far back as possible. For me to hit my knee on the key, my nuts would be on the steering wheel. Sounds like fun, but I don't roll that way!

It has worked in every single stalling WK for everyone person i know that has tired it.

the dealership looked at my jeep 2 times trying to fix the issue to no avail. I brought my jeep to another dealership, spoke with a master jeep tech, i had not finished describing my problem and he told me to do this. IT WILL NOT HURT ANYTHING. Its too small of an amount to do anything. IT WORKS.
I had my Jeep stall on me twice today at lunch. Glad it was just stop and go traffic.

I picked up some ATF+4 today at teh dealer, but was curious if you were certain that adding ATF+4 fluid fixed other jeeps besides the 4.7 before I add more fluid? I have a 5.7 and having it stall twice in a 15 minute period was enough to raise an eyebrow for me.

Thanks!
