WRONG

Re: First oil change some info and comments

I haven't jacked the vehicle at all yet- totally agree the jack is crap, and jacking points are important to get right, (as with most modern...

Re: First oil change some info and comments

I did an oil change yesterday. Too easy!
Only 5,000klms in 6 months but I'd rather "over" do it on this high tech engine.

I drained the oil (nice and hot), using protective gloves just in case....

Re: 2014 JGC Diesel rattle (Australia)

Don't lose too much sleep over the temp gauge.

Yes, it moves a lot, at least it actually MOVES unlike many modern vehicles which have damped down gauges which quite literally "lie through their...

Re: Is DPF issue for 2014 CRD fixed now?

I'm sure he was talking about turning off the Aircon to avoid overheating, not for more power of less fuel.

Re: Check your air filter

When I originally checked mine, after the first post about the filter problems on this forum, I opened it carefully and found the filter very badly split. I repaired it with silicone to get home, and...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I wouldn't worry about taking the battery out, too much hard work.
AGM batteries (as in the JGC) have very low self discharge, way lower than wet cells. If disconnected, (preferably just after a run...

Re: Jeep service costs

Couldn't agree more!
I bought three oil filters, and an air filter, (Wesfill) for $118 delivered to the door.
Quality is excellent- and (bonus) the air filter has a decent moulded rubberised...

Re: MY14 Laredo Rear Camera Australian Spec

Which camera have they fitted?
Is it the one which sits in moulded plastic, or the absolute crap square shaped one which is just cut into the existing moulding- the one many of us had previously.

Re: Towing Review//Engine Heat

A few people are mentioning other vehicles which don't change in temp when they hit a hill.
