I recently read a service schedule chart for my 2011 GC with the V6 motor & 3.06 gearing. It stated that the front and rear axle fluid should be changed at 36,000 mi, is this correct? It seems like...

Re: Weird powerband?

Same deal in the V6, horribly sluggish power at times other times it is quite snappy and revs fast lending more than adequate power.

In my opinion and as a performance enthusiast and as a...

Re: Power Steering Fluid 3.6L

The only thing it says on the cap is "Use specified fluid"

I am the original owner and picked it up with 8mi on the clock.

The fluid in there now is clear with a faint yellowish tint. I don't think it could have ever been the reddish color of the +4, That is why I am so confused.

Power Steering Fluid 3.6L

I have a 2011 GK Laredo pkg with the 3.6, V6 motor.

I don't know whether I...

I agree the V6 can bring it on at times, like a full on stomp coming onto the highway- it will shoot you up to 100mph pretty quick.
