Re: Fix for capless filler

$2.75 at Home Depot or Lowes. Its a rubber pipe cap found in the plumbing section. Perfect.

Re: Increased emissions pressure

I'm all for clean air but EPA demands on diesel engines are out of balance with the engineering efforts and resulting cost the market is willing to bare. We as the consumer suffer, as usual.

Re: Increased emissions pressure

Re: Whistling/whining noise when engine running

The air ride pump sounds like the typical small 12v portable emergency inflator. The system is sealed. If there where any leaks, it would run often...even when parked, to make up for lost height.

I think Jeep is addressing the issue. They are not very open and up front about it though. The TSBs and redesigned Cat should take care of it. I'm a higher mileage driver so I hit the 20k mark sooner...

Re: Service Def - See Dealer

Another clogged DEF system. They should perform a flow test to confirm. A Cat failure doesn't trigger the no start countdown in my experience.

Re: Eco Diesel Mileage

That's only 63.8 mph average. Did you drive much faster then do some city driving or long idles? 27 mpg is low for a trip at that speed unless you where in the mountains.
