Re: WK2 Sump Protection Plate

I can't say for sure, but I think the 3.6L might be accessible in the same spot, making the 5.7L the odd man out. Can anyone confirm?

No need to cut a hole, it's easy enough to remove the sump...

Cheers,

Absolutely, or perhaps its a jump jet or a tilt rotor, the riddle doesn't say. With more detail an answer may be determined, but the question does what it is designed to, generate arguments.

Re: Jacking a QL Jeep

I go into the settings and check jack mode. I beleive this disables the leveleing. After you put the car into gear, this automatically disables (unchecks itself).

Re: Jacking a QL Jeep

It's really not "settling". It is "leveling" and this apparently can happen after the vehicle is parked and engine is off.
