Towing with ECODIESEL

Interesting. It would appear that Jeep is as competent in drafting owners manuals as it is in designing DEF systems. The dilemma is to choose between following a section unique to the diesel...

Re: Towing with ECODIESEL

Not sure where you're reading. The 2015 Diesel Supplement (3d ed.) has the same language on page 9 that I quoted from page 7 of the 2014 Diesel Supplement. Page 10 seems to suggest that the...

Re: Towing with ECODIESEL

You are reading from the wrong owners manual. The break-in recommendations of the generic owner's manual do not apply to diesels. This is a quote from p. 7 of the 2014 Diesel Supplement, 7th...

Re: DEF Injector Protective Shield: is tape used for its installation?

Yeah. What I did was test fit it with out tape. Then I applied the tape to the plate but left the adhesive side that contacts the frame covered by the packaging tape. Then I loosely installed the...

DEF Injector Protective Shield: is tape used for its installation?

Yes. That's what I used. Make sure you use a floor jack and 2x4 to put some pressure on the plate over the taped area to allow the tape to cure. And double the thickness with two stacked strips.

Re: DEF INJECTOR and Harness protection group buy

Oh, yeah. Double sided tape works great. Just use two layers and put some pressure over the area after install for a few minutes with a 2x4 and a floor jack until it cures and it's rock solid.

2014 Ecodiesel DEF Injector Class Action?

Did you have the RRT performed before the injector broke? If so, you might have more leverage because you can point to the fix as evidence that Jeep knows about the issue, tried to address it, and...

Re: Where to buy DEF

Blain's Farm & Fleet. Bought 2.5 gallons of Peak DEF for $8.49. Date code indicated batch was only two weeks old.

Re: Testimonial for DOMs DEF injector/ harness protection plate

Creaking sound from passenger side front wheel area. Dealer does not know cause.

Re: Diesel Fuel Adapter...

I bought one for my Jeep. It works, but be careful with it. It also bypasses the auto shutoff, so it can be a real mess if you're not careful.

Same here. Intermittent whine. Can't really determine the pattern except that it seems to be a bit more apparent when the gas tank gets down to the halfway mark. Might be a coincidence, though. ...

Re: DEF Injector Protection

That would be my guess but it should be easy to check. Look under your Jeep and see if has the same ties that are identified in the TSB.
