Re: Incorrect DEF - See dealer

Re: Diesel noise boost!

Any idea what torque spec is required for the cross-member bolt? I'm not concerned about any of the other bolts, but would like the cross-member one to be torqued to spec.

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: 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.
