Re: Harmonic Noise High Pressure Diesel Injector Pump Return

Re: Harmonic Noise High Pressure Diesel Injector Pump Return

That's interesting. Unfortunately mine didn't stop with a restart. May remove the cable ties on a couple of weeks and see if it is still an issue.

Re: Now its fuel filter prices!!!

I'm guessing that whoever keyed up the invoice called up a new sump plug and not a sump plug washer.

Re: Can anyone recommend oil?

Google black stone results on Mobil1 ESP for those that have used it in Jeeps and Dodge Rams. You will be surprised how well it performs.

Re: Diff oil replacement

To make life easier for next time, stop in at "Super Crap Auto" and pick up a hand operated oil pump. Pretty cheap and makes life easy for these tasks.

Not sure Jeep will be very helpful with the funds as ours is at 140,000km.

Sludge in the coolant expansion tank is symptomatic of incompatible coolant being used to top up the fluid.

Re: Oil Drain Plug Washer

Copper washer is for the old type plugs. Rubber will only need replacing if damaged, then you would just get a whole new plug, complete with rubber.

Jeep service costs

Something looks odd with the transfer case oil cost. $120 for 2 litres of ATF+4 that is the same oil as used in the auto transmission. Maybe there is a labour component mixed up in this.

Re: Jeep service costs

160k transmission oil change would be for the new ZF's, not the 5 speed that I expect your 2012 to have. Me thinks that your dealer is confused.
