What a load of crap! Go visit another dealer!

sigh.

Correct answer would have been "we'll sell you the dipstick at cost, and we'll install it for free" .. but I guess I'm just an idealist..

Ideally, it would have been "oh hey, you have the low oil problem because of Jeep's mistake, I see the TSB and although you're out of regular warranty, we'll cover it anyway."

Wouldn't that have been nice? Ordered it on amazon for $15 shipped from a Jeep dealer in Texas.

Re: Its the dipstick! On the hemi

I have the AC dipstick. With seven quarts it shows exactly on the full mark. Go figure. I'm at 28,000. Doesn't burn a drop of oil.

Re: Its the dipstick! On the hemi

Both the wife and I have 2014 Hemi Grand Cherokee's with the bum dipsticks. My dealer's about 35 miles away. That's two separate trips likely pissing away half a day each time. Ordered them online and had 2 sitting on my front porch for $34 delivered. I'm no Warren Buffett but my time off is worth a whole lot more than that to me.

I would have done exactly the same. But my dealer is just 4 miles away.

Re: Its the dipstick! On the hemi

I know the TSB says only for 2014-2015 V8 JCG, but anyone with a 2011 V8 JCG notice the same issue of the oil level running at the add line? Ill have to check the current dipstick part#, but I wonder if earlier JCG suffer from the same problem?

Yes your V8 Grand suffers from the same problem, the entire production run until they issued this TSB have had the wrong dipstick installed from the factory floor!

The reason the TSB only covers 2015~2015 V8 Grands is because those newer vehicles are still under the 3/36 bumper to bumper warrantee, while they can tell the rest of us to f**k off and buy your own "correct" dipstick!

Where did you order from? How were the dipsticks packaged? I'm tempted to order mine online, even though I'm still under warranty. I forgot where I read it, but I heard some folks were getting the new dipsticks and they were rolled up in the packaging, meaning to say not flat and straight like one would assume. Thanks in advance!

Re: Its the dipstick! On the hemi

I got mine from the dealer I bought the vehicle from. I picked it up there. It was packaged taped to a long, hard piece of card stock so it wouldn't bend. I'm told some of them that people ordered on line, came to their house rolled up, and had to be bent back straight. If it isn't a big inconvenience, and you can get it from the dealer, I would go that route.
