    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    1. Stick with full-synthetic. a) 2016+ switched from 5W-20 -> 0W-20, there is no 0W-20 non-synthetic available. b) Full synthetic is cheap as hell these days. It's gonna make your engine last longer. 2. Most major brands compliant with Chrysler MS-6395. a) FCA use Pennzoil...

  4. 2014 Overland 20” tire options

    Suspension/Driveline/Brakes/Wheels/Tires
    Mine 20' comes with Pirelli Scorpion Verde out of factory. Good tires are expensive, don't try to save money out of tires. Go get Michelin Defenders or Bridgestone Dueler HL alenza plus. Scorpion Verde A/S Plus 107T SL BSW $176 (America's Tire) 11/32 - 740AA Scorpion Verde A/S Plus...
  5. [Maintenance] Sway bar bushing part number?

    Suspension/Driveline/Brakes/Wheels/Tires
    Does any one know where I can find quality (Polyurethane instead of rubber) sway bar bushing? I don't know which one will fit. Mine has gone bad and making squeaky noise when only one wheel riding over the bump. (happened in the second year (2017) of purchase @24k miles) Today I have put 60k+...
  6. Advice needed: Lease Buyout 2016 JGC Limited 75th Anniv

    Grand Cherokee - WK2 -
    Dude if you really love WK2 then you should return it and get a new one. I have seen Jeep ran year end rebate around $5500+ last year. That's now include dealer discount. Let's say for a 2019 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk with MSRP $50000, your purchase price is $50000-$5500-$8000=$36500 Before Tax...
  7. Will doing my own work void max care lifetime warranty ?

    Grand Cherokee - WK2 -
    On paper, you should always keep all the original copies of service receipt/proof if you were doing maintenance yourself. But reality is, dealer really don’t ask for those if they are doing any under-warranty repair, trust me.
  8. A/C Compressor cycling all the time?

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    I have the exact same issue with 2016 Limited. The car keeps blowing cold air even when I turn the AC off (indicator OFF). I have never seen this in other cars as some times you just need fresh air from outside without letting compressor doing its work. At beginning I thought it's just mine...
  9. New Battery? What?

    Grand Cherokee - WK2 -
    Hi Dave, 2014 and 2015 MY doesn't have engine auto start/stop. So I guess your should have more choices than 2016 and up owners. I have 2016 and up battery specs hope it helps, it definitely meets and exceed your 14MY requirement. Here is what you can choose from: 1) OEM Mopar: Part Number...
  10. [HELP] Is oil filter housing leak covered by warranty

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Took my WK2 for service today at a local shot and technician found oil leak formed a tiny puddle around oil filter housing base. Is this covered by 60000mi/5yr powertrain warranty? Can dealer lie about warranty coverage(i.e. they can say this is not 'inside' engine block so it's not covered)...
  11. Connect doesnt recognize USB

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    No, it used to be perfectly fine with my phones. It just stopped working at certain point. It doesn't even charge my Garmin GPS, consider it only consumes very less power to charge, again, it use to charge the Garmin fine.
  12. Connect doesnt recognize USB

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Mine not even charge the my Android nor the iPhone properly. The charging icon on my phone keeps flickering, tried on new cords, no luck. FCA crap part sucks.
  13. Connect doesnt recognize USB

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    My USB port stops charging and functioning @ 34000mi 1.5yr I think it's either because of the crap parts broken or the recent Uconnect update complete messed up with the ports. As this issue starts happening after I did the Uconnect update.
  14. Problem filling up the tank with gas -- 2017 Grand Cherokee - WHAT IN THE WORLD???

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    The EVR pump (i.e California) is always a trouble maker, it's not something wrong with Jeep. I even experience more issue on my new Audi A5. The big rubber boot on EVR nozzle kinda prevent nozzle going all the way in, that's the source of this issue. For example, in Michigan I have never had...
  15. Upgrading 2015 USB Media HUB to 2018 w/Carplay

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    It is possible but not under $1000. I attached URL at end. I don't recommend you doing this DIY. Your OEM radio serial number is linked with your VIN, doing the swap may cause following issue: 1) Future official Uconnect OTA Update (to new 8.4C Nav radio) requires VIN. Though it's possible to...
