Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

The RAM trucks already have this. It's basically a thermal control module in-line with the cooler lines that will bypass the cooler and heat the fluid when it's below operating temp. The 8-speeds,...

Re: QL suspension jiggly

Balance could be contributing. Does your steering wheel shake at all?

Re: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee-transmission problem

It's either accidentally hitting a paddle, or in some cases may be a bad paddle switch which has an intermittent short (personally seen this...very annoying).

Re: Highest Oil Temp You Have Experienced ?

The V6 tends to run lower oil temps than the 5.7 Hemi as it has an oil cooler -- the Hemi doesn't.

Highest Oil Temp You Have Experienced ?
