  1. Engine studder and thottle lag anyone else having this issue

    Seems like everyone's problem is the same...misfire...but at different speeds and temps. Very strange. Anyway, just a report here: Last May, I had a driver's side mirror that melted and warped, in the sun. After waiting almost two months, they replaced it under warranty. When I picked up the...
  2. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    Also, if no temp sensor is installed and the PCM can know what gear you are in (I don't know whether it can or not) It would be pretty simple math for the PCM to sense between driveline RPM and engine RPM and know if the clutch is slipping or not, then de-tune. Just speculation.
  3. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    Not to stand up for FCA, believe me....but I think we are a little out of control on this thread? It seems to me that the de-tune would happen only if the PCM sensed an over-heat condition of the clutch? (Like someone has said, they will probably have to install a temp sensor and harness...
  4. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    I have to admit, this is my first view of this thread and I didn't read every word in the 87 pages; but my first reaction was, "REDUCE torque???? Are you SERIOUS????" Cripes, half the reason the things are burning up is that the 3.6 has no low-end torque in the FIRST place!!! I have had eight...
  5. Trouble shifting to 4H

    I shift in and out every couple of weeks, just to keep a feel for what it's like going in and out of 4H because it does NOT feel right, even though it works. More like a 1959 Ford pick up I tried once. Even my TJ shifted in and out better; and that thing was a highway-capable farm tractor...
  6. 2021 Jeep Manual Transmission

    The transmission itself shifts great, smooth as butter. Almost TOO easy...Sometimes I feel like I might break off some fragile linkage somewhere. No low end torque, sensitive throttle and massive rev hang on the 3.6 make it a bit touchy to engage 1st like you've been doing it all your life...
  7. Fob doesn't work below freezing?

    Thanks. If you read some of these threads long enough, you start thinking that the Jeep wave is really the middle finger. Whatever. It's okay. Whenever people come across as thinking they know everything, that is direct evidence that they actually don't.
  8. Fob doesn't work below freezing?

    Well I knew batteries were not as good in the cold okay; but since I have no electric door locks, I didn't even know my fob would need a battery until this thread. Okay, since the geezer is willing to learn, do Speed Pass units (The ones that pay tolls automatically when you drive by) have...
  9. Fob doesn't work below freezing?

    "Why are old people mad at the world and so consistently blame their own mistakes and lack of understanding on society/technology/these darn kids? " Because we are right!:) My favorite analogy to this kind of thing is when Indiana Jones confronts a sword-wielding guy, obviously highly skilled...
  10. Fob doesn't work below freezing?

    I guess I am surprised that mine has a battery at all, since I don't have electric door locks. It does make sense that it could be the battery, now that I think about it. Even though something like a Speed-pass doesn't need a battery, in the case of the fob, it is not always in close proximity...
  11. Fob doesn't work below freezing?

    So yesterday, it happened a SECOND TIME. I mistakenly left my Fob in the Jeep ('19 Wrangler Sport) overnight. The temp dipped to a whopping 31 degrees. (Around here on Cape Cod, some people are still wearing shorts at 31 degrees.) I got up, went out to start the vehicle and nothing. The...
  12. My 2020 Jeep Rubicon “JLUR” could have killed me and my family this weekend.

    Interesting. The partly installed fuses have been reported as the possible source of various problems since the JL came out in 2018. Whether those are installed by a robot or by hand, they really need to address the fact that they can't even install a fuse right after three years. Mine were...
  13. My 2020 Jeep Rubicon “JLUR” could have killed me and my family this weekend.

    I suppose that these days, an alternaor has it's own computer and can line too. (Hopefully, that is a joke, on my part.) However, old school thinking says if the alternator was taken out, I would be looking for an intermittent open or short in the main BATTERY wiring....
  14. My 2020 Jeep Rubicon “JLUR” could have killed me and my family this weekend.

    It looks to me like the "engineers" put to much reliance on CAN BUS C. I am not an automotive tech, just a marine tech. Our stuff is pretty far behind automotive. But just the same, that's why they have different CAN buses; So if say, your door ajar monitoring bus goes down, it doesn't take out...
  15. 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 V8 - Specs, Wallpapers, Videos!

    All those balls and it looks like a Sahara? What were they thinking? Too bad I couldn't get the 492 with a standard transmission. Maybe then I wouldn't have to feather the clutch quite so carefully as my V6. Can I order half-doors to back-fit my Sport?
  16. Right Rear Corner Noise

    Manual or automatic transmission? I have a manual, that had this problem. When I turned off my "hill start assist" feature, I never heard the noise again. Then again, maybe I am just blocking it out. Welcome to the world of Jeeps that are okay with Fiat. You'll be blocking out a LOT of things.
  17. Engine studder and thottle lag anyone else having this issue

    A lot has been said about the fact that you have to wind the 3.6 above 2000 before everythng is fine. Also, we are supposed to stop whining because if we do whine, we're not true Jeepers. Well, I have had a lot of Jeeps and I feel this JL is not a Jeep. It is a brick-shaped Lexus. Between the...
  18. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    I have always shuddered to think what would happen if somebody tried to change my clutch, working for an organization that can't even change the oil right. There it is.
  19. Engine studder and thottle lag anyone else having this issue

    By the way, I know of at least two early posters to these misfire threads, who have actually traded their Jeeps in because they got nowhere with FCA and just couldn't stand to be driving a vehicle that ran worse than a Model T Ford.
  20. Engine studder and thottle lag anyone else having this issue

    Very interesting that they still have done nothing with this problem, for 2020, which is the third model year. Absolutely pathetic. There has been another thread started on this. There are a few threads actually, although none are very long, because only manuals have a VERY NOTICEABLE problem...
