Re: tappet sounding noise

oil change
1. Remove top cover and oil cap.
2. Undo the oil filter but dont remove so the oil filter drains. (saves mess later)
3. Raise vehicle and remove skid plate
4. Remove drain plug and drain the oil (drain pan needs to hold at least 12 quarts)
5. After the oil drains, replace drain plug with new washer and tightened to 30 NM.
6. Lower vehicle and put 5 quarts in the oil filter housing and the rest in the oil filler. This is to prevent crankshaft damage.
NOTE : it is very important not to spill any oil around the oil filler as the alternator is directly below and oil can damage it.
7. Replace oil filter cartridge and install the new seals that came with the filter. See T.S.B http://www.wkjeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wk_0900507.pdf Slightly oil the new seals and reinstall the filter into the oil filter housing and tightened to 25 NM.
8. It is now critical to wait 15 minutes before starting to allow the oil to drain down. Service manual also say wait 15 minutes after engine has run to allow the oil to return to the pan before checking the oil level.




Useful info
OIL SAE VISCOSITY GRADE
An SAE Synthetic engine oil that conforms to ACEA A3/B4/C3 that is approved to MB 229.31 low ash oil
OIL CAPACITY 10.0 Quarts
Drain plug torque 22 ft-lbs
Oil filter 18 lbs-ft with oil filter socket 9551

I plan to contact the UK MD of Jeep to raise this, no way I am paying 200 something to fix an issue which can arise when the oil is changed, its simply outrageous.

So anything you can find will aid me in case against these jokers. I love my Jeep but this is leaving a bitter taste in my mouth.
The Jeep dealers are a bit of a joke over here. I was once quoted an hours labour (82) to fit a sidelight bulb for an MOT. I thought that it didn't sound right, went on wjjeeps.com and bang! Found out it takes less than a minute to do. I just stay clear as much as possible now.

tell me about the sidelights are a synch on the WH, but the main bulbs are a pain.

I have contacted Jeeps customer service now, we shall see where i go from here.

But your right about the jeep service centres they are a bunch of jokers, i was listening to some of the other customers and their conversations about their vehicles, and i was amazed at how much the service centre charges and gets away with.

If it was not for this website, and the guys on here, i would of had no choice but to follow the so called techs advice, part with a lot of cash, be led up a garden path and be with out my jeep for days, if not weeks.

will keep you all updated.
