Re: 2014 Jeep GC V6 Limited - High Pitch "Whining" Noise From Engine Compartment

Doubtful. Maybe in the next model upgrade. I've spoken with pile of people at Jeep; no one really cares. I've been escalated to ECS (Enhanced Customer Service) and the best they have offered me is an extended warranty for free or free oil changes for 4 years. LOL. Perhaps they will make a snap on cover or something for it in the future; they have been known to do that in the past. They also told me to trade mine in for a V8, as the V8 doesn't have the electric pump. Really? That would be a $7000 loss for me.

Re: 2014 Jeep GC V6 Limited - High Pitch "Whining" Noise From Engine Compartment

i complained as well, the dealer replaced the pump, and chrysler gave me an extended my warranty for an additional 70k. i still have the same problem with the new pump. such bullshit.

went through something similar with ford. they fixed the rack (after the 4th wrack replaced) and they extended my warranty. i have no hope in jeep. i guess that's why they call it a 'Jeep' (pronounced 'cheap').

Does anyone know if there has been a fix? My first jeep, got it less than two weeks ago and about to drive 1000miles on it.

Re: 2014 Jeep GC V6 Limited - High Pitch "Whining" Noise From Engine Compartment

There is no fix. I traded in my 2014 V6 and got a 2015 V8. The V8 doesn't have an electric power steering pump; so, no noise. You either live with the noise or replace the Jeep. Sorry.

Re: 2014 Jeep GC V6 Limited - High Pitch "Whining" Noise From Engine Compartment

According to the Jeep press release, all 2016 models (V8s included) are moving to electric power steering. Maybe they found a quieter pump.

The noise also seems to vary from vehicle to vehicle. I have a 2015 Altitude and the sound is barely noticeable and only there part of the time. I had a 2014 for a few months and it was much more noticeable and always there on that particular vehicle. The most annoying part was the dealer telling me it was normal.

Re: 2014 Jeep GC V6 Limited - High Pitch "Whining" Noise From Engine Compartment

the driveshaft problem is a totally different issue and only happens when driving.

the steering pump issue is something you can hear at idle, sitting still.

Re: 2014 Jeep GC V6 Limited - High Pitch "Whining" Noise From Engine Compartment

Interesting. I started a similar thread on this a few weeks ago. The noise from mine is much worse. They have checked all belts/pulleys/seals--even replaced the water pump because they said the seal was bad.

So FCA hasn't done anything yet to rectify this? Mine didn't do this until recently so it's definitely not "normal"
