Re: 2002 4.7 HO vs 2015 5.7

but the 8HP70 transmission has a much lower first gear ratio, so the overall 1st ratio is 14.55 with the 3.09 rear.. the 545RFE and 3.73 comes out to 11.19 by my math.

Re: Are 2015 Grand Cherokee's Electronically Speed Limited?

IIRC, regardless of where it is made, if it is certified for sale in the US it will have a speed limiter. With V-rated tires, the limit could be 149MPH.

Re: Are 2015 Grand Cherokee's Electronically Speed Limited?

My recollection is that US vehicles are (possibly by law) speed-limited based on the rating of the tires.

Re: Parent's 2014 Durango died while driving twice- ideas?

The electrical architecture changed in '14, and the TIPM went away,.

Re: Parent's 2014 Durango died while driving twice- ideas?

See if you can get the build date from the driver's door ("MDH" code).

Re: AC Compressor Does't start WJ 02

Re: Power consumption when vehicle is off

You can always pull the IOD fuse.. You may lose some presets if you do, but the vehicle should be fine sitting for months with the fuse out..

Re: A/C will not turn off

I'm not an AC dude, but I don't see how they can tell that there was 0.55kg of refrigerant in the system.

I'm also surprised that they will fill an undercharged system without doing a leak test.....

Re: I can only imagine how much this will cost.

I can see how this could happen.

"white" LEDs aren't really White LEDs.

Re: Extremely Pissed. Traction/stability control in snow.
