    Have you had the TIPM recall completed?
  2. basic AWD/4WD (snow mode) questions on the 2018 JGC Overland

    Suspension/Driveline/Brakes/Wheels/Tires
    Were you asking about the selec-terrain ratios?
  3. MOPAR MAXCARE coverage question

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    In the same message, JeepCares sent me a link to the documentation and there is no reference to body hardware or anything like that. On a good news front, the body shop replaced both the lower/upper hinges and the popping noise is gone.
  4. MOPAR MAXCARE coverage question

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Gave it a shot, but no joy. "Maxcare is only designed to cover mechanical concerns".
  5. MOPAR MAXCARE coverage question

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    I will certainly try that and report back.
  6. MOPAR MAXCARE coverage question

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Wanted to follow up my old post with the Maxcare details. 1) The drivers side door makes a loud popping noise when opening and closing. I have tried WD40, but it still makes the noise and from what I have read, the door stop / hinge / pin need to be looked at --> According to the dealer, they...
  7. Rear shocks

    Suspension/Driveline/Brakes/Wheels/Tires
    I didn't think the Laredo had an option for Quadra-Lift.
  8. Air conditioner sounds like it's on a ventalator

    2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel 3.0
    To follow-up, you are all correct. Following a new blower fan with wheel, evacuation and recharge (dye was also added -- I assume to help find a leak), Darth Vader is gone. Will see how long it lasts. No idea of cost -- it was covered under Maxcare.

    I am going through this right now. I like the Darth Vader description ... I was saying hissing or gurgling, but yours is much better. Mine is really noticeable when you turn the fan on high, let it run for about five seconds and then turn back to low ... Darth Vader is definitely angry at that...
  10. Strange A/C noise in JGC

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Jeep is at the dealer for the A/C noise. Tech advised that the blower motor needs to be replaced and a full evacuation/recharge/dye of the A/C system needs to be completed. During the multi-point inspection, they also noted the rear shocks are leaking (again). All covered under maxcare with a...
  11. Strange A/C noise in JGC

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    I am not sure if the sound will come across very well in the attached video, but the A/C in my 2012 JGC is making a strange (almost hissing) noise -- heard in the cabin. I usually leave it on auto and the fan runs fine, the system blows cold air and this annoying noise comes and goes as the A/C...
  12. Purolator One oil filter PL12222

    Engine Performance/Intakes/Exhausts
    For some models (Ram), for the 5.7L Hemi, they went to a smaller filter in 2013 when they went to electric power steering because there is not as much clearance between the EPS rack and oil filter as there was between the filter and hydraulic steering setup (Fram offers two sizes with a...
  13. Purolator One oil filter PL12222

    Engine Performance/Intakes/Exhausts
    Good discussion on the smaller filter that Jeep is using. https://jeepgarage.org/f107/oil-filter-size-195738.html
  14. Best Engine Oil for Hemi with Towing

    Engine Performance/Intakes/Exhausts
    They have reduced not removed zinc from today's motor oil.
  15. 2014 GC 3.6L Oil Leak

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Out of curiosity, who has changed your oil? From what I have read, this failure happens due to over-tightening of the oil filter cap (18 ft lbs spec) -- the plastic design was stupid. I realize Jeep Corp said no, but if it was the dealership or another shop that changed the oil, perhaps it is...
