Re: Hemi sounds like diesel when cold

My hemi does it also, I think it is piston slap. I hesitate letting the dealer look at it since it is running great other than the noise when cold.

Re: What in the heck kind of noise was this? loud moan after starting car.

I have also heard the moan. I think it is the steering wheel moving from the retracted position to the driver's setting.

Re: First time on beach this year

Yes, I do air down. Usually the tire pressure is 20 to 25 psi based on type and depth of sand. In this case I ran at 25 psi.

Re: Quadra Lift? Squeak

I had a similar noise and the tech took the sway bar off the car, cleaned dirt from the driver's side bushing, lubed both bushings, and reassembled. It solved my problem.

Re: Noisy suspension in ORII?

When I was running in ruts on the beach, I heard the stops being hit because of the ripples in the ruts and had to slow down. This was never problem with my 2003 GLC with conventional suspension.

Re: A Few More Stupid Sand Questions

I usually air down to 20 psi and drive to a service station afterwards. Usually keep speed below 35 MPH. If you have a tow hitch, you can attach a tow strap using the hitch pin.

Problem with TSB 18-035-11

Re: New at Off Roading

I always carry a pin for the tow hitch receiver. It provides a handy way to attach a strap at the rear of the jeep.

Re: 5.7 Eco Mode

I thought at first that 5 was not overdrive, but at highway speeds, you run the same RPM whether you are in 5 or D. Only difference seems to be no Eco in 5.

Re: 5.7 Eco Mode

If you run in 5, there is no Eco mode. I use 5 around town and only use D on the highway.

Re: Problem in 4th and 5th Gear

Try 5 in auto shift. It eliminates mds, but not torque converter lockup.
