Re: Just filled up with Off Road Diesel

Personally I wouldn't stress out.

No DOT officer is even going to know they Jeep makes a diesel.

The only time I've heard of folks getting checked is places like parking lots of cattle auctions...

Re: Diesel overland burning smell at idle during test drive

My '14 diesel smelled like that for a little while. Basically until I got it hot a few times.

Re: New Check Engine Light

Dealer says it was a computer flash update (as well as transmission controller, stereo amplifier, limited slip controller, and climate control updates)

We shall see.

Re: New Check Engine Light

I'm betting sensor. I got the same error almost exactly a month ago and cleared the code.

The gauge showed 1/3 tank of DEF when I added 2.5g of 'new looking' DEF in the Wal-Mart parking lot. I...

Re: New Check Engine Light

Light came on during a sunny drive home church.

I did add new def (2.5g) on Friday and filled up with diesel Saturday.

I'll call the dealer in the morning.

Re: Grand Cherokee Diesel Towing Test

I don't get how they got 15mpg running WFO the whole way up. I'd think (based on what my instant mpg shows that it would be lower).

Re: Towing 3,000 lb trailer without trailer brakes?

I've pretty much never seen a 1000ish lbs GVWR trailer with brakes.

I'm at 9k miles since November of the kind of mixed driving you are talking about - including hours of idle time. No DPF issues here.

MPG with 2wd & factory tow package

My 4x4 has factory tow (Off Road II)

It has 3.45 according to the build sheet.

I think all of the '14s do.

Re: First oil change – some info and comments

That sucks.

I changed mine myself. It wasn't hard at all.

On suctioning out the filter housing - I just let it drain then used a shop towel. Clean as a whistle and no big deal.
