So the Jeep ran fine and no noise. You noticed oil on the garage floor and took it (had it towed) to the dealer for service.

So the Jeep was noise free until after the dealer serviced the Jeep? They replaced the filter and topped the oil off.

What happened between Sat Morning (after the Jeep was serviced) and Sat Night when you started the Jeep to hear the noise?

Seems the Jeep ran/sounded fine until after the service. If the engine was bad prior to service, why would adding oil and changing the filter cause the noise?

Re: Not Happy 2 weeks into it.

Its pretty loud and sounds metallic, but you never know. I have seen coils have a short and hammer like that though. Pop your hood and turn off the garage lights, make it totally dark and look for a spark around the coils and plug wires just to make sure.

Another option is use a screw driver to the engine and your ear to see if the sound is amplified (stethoscope basically). If it's engine related you'll hear it, else it could be something else like and exhaust leak.

Re: Not Happy 2 weeks into it.

The noise did not start until after the service that same day. I drove the jeep most of the morining and then parked it for a few hours until I was going to go out with the wife for dinner. I then started the jeep and the noise started.
So dealer called today and stated that it was an air pocket in the oil system some how. They stated that they called STAR and spoke with them and they told them to run the car for 30 sec at 2K rpm and the noise went away. I have never heard of that before. They told me that there was no damage done to the motor.
I then called SRT hotline and was very impressed with them. After speaking with Jeff with SRT and told him my problems. Jeff called the dealer and called me back in about 15 mins. Jeff stated that he would follow up with the dealer tomorow to make sure everything was taken of they way I wanted it. He also said that they would document the problem just in case something does happen to the motor in the future.
On a side note the front bumper issue of the it poping out under the headlights finally has a fix finally. Jeff told me that they just released a service bullitin of how to fix the issiue today.

I can see an air pocket as a possibility. Same thing happens in coolant systems when drained and filled. The air eventually works its way through the system.

So sounds like its all been taken care of.


For the TSB on the bumper issue I checked WK2 Jeeps and don't see it listed yet. Just current to 10/03/12. I know there was a Star Case bulletin for the bumper fix, but no TSB yet. Got any more info on it?

Re: Not Happy 2 weeks into it.

Man id still be nervous about the parts that didn't have lubricant. An air pocket means no lube.... noise means wear.

Could have been a lifter that was collapsed and oil somehow wasn't filling it up..who knows. Its in his case file now. If star advised it and it fixed the noise, I doubt they will dig into the engine. With that said you may be able to push the issue but unless you get catastrophic damage or the noise comes back most dealers will just say come back if it gets worse. But it never hurts to ask

Re: Not Happy 2 weeks into it.

I was thinking of pressing about getting a extended warranty for free. What do you guys think.
