Re: PCV line / Oil Catch can

Should we be concerned with sludge and moisture build-up as a result of not enough negative pressure? Road-draft tubes didn't do a great job getting all the moisture and fumes out of the crankcase,...

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

I don't have either of them. I have done the 18-018-14B TSB, so no hope there. Maybe it's for a future dream SFU machine, much like the imaginary LDW (if equipped...) in the owners manual.

Re: 2014 ecodiesel in shop

Would a lubricity diesel additive help reduce the risk of the HPFP shredding itself? Is it worth it to invest in regular applications of something like XPD?

Re: Rapidly deteriorating oil life

Lol... Amen to that. But seriously, this does make a difference. If the life meter overshoots, I will always use Chrysler's recommended 8K-10K miles service schedule.

Re: Rapidly deteriorating oil life

TSB definitely made a difference. Before the TSB application oil life would change at a rate of 100 miles per 1%. After the TSB I've been getting close to 600 mile per 1% with similar driving style.

Re: Towing Review//Engine Heat

Please be careful with adding anything other than OAT coolant, conforming with MS-12106. Any other additives are frowned by Chrysler and may react with the coolant and damage your engine.

Re: Fueling the CRD

The manual is talking about "system", not door. I believe its related to the underbody fuel filter. Why would one open those with the engine running is beyond me.

Re: center console questions

The 2014 bottom compartment has a lighter power outlet. I plugged in a dual USB power regulator there. They also carved a groove so you can feed cables out of the compartment. Very useful.
