Big Leak Under My Engine
 
3 Attachment(s)
Good day! Jeep fan!

For me I dunno if it's a good day I haven't drive my 2011 GC for almost a month now because of the odd noise coming from the engine and a big leak under my engine. sucks me! It all started early month of Dec 2012 when I heard some noise coming from engine. I've always inspect my Jeep every morning, I can't find what's the problem everything seems normal all the connection and fluids. I even top up my steering wheel fluid since i've notice it always running low. I ended up taking it the nearest Chrysler/Jeep dealership from where I live, just before Christmas. At first I was told just to keep on toping up the steering wheel fluid so it won't run out, while waiting for my appointment which is not happening after 3 weeks. so I bought 3 L of steering wheel fluid just make sure I have enough for the rest of the month. after driving just around town just before new year the leak got worst, like even if I pour the whole jug of steering wheel fluid in, it will just drain out as soon i start the engine. Two days ago I have to call Roadside Assistant to have it tow to the nearest Chrysler/Jeep, because I can't drive my JEEP anymore, the steering wheel is so heavy can't hardly turn the wheel, I found steering wheel fluid all over my driveway. The service dept. of the dealership told me it MIGHT be the steering wheel pump or the pressure hose or line has a problem. Until now I'm still waiting, no JEEP, dealership have not contact me for any updates.

First off, welcome to JG. This post actually belongs in the WK2 section (because WK is only for 2005-10), but it seems like what the dealer told you is most likely true. Losing power steering fluid is most likely due to a faulty pump or the line (unless the reservoir itself is damaged/flawed). Hopefully you're under warranty and the dealer will get it fixed in short order. Be sure to report back!

MODS PLEASE MOVE THIS THREAD TO THE WK2 FORUM.
