Early 2018 JLUR 3.6/auto
2 steering stabilizer replacements
Rear defroster—glass replacement
Computer flash for steering boost loss in cold weather
Computer flash for surging idle
just replaced the original tires with another set of KO2 DT’s
The labor to separate the body, pull the drive train and axles, re- install everything plus fix the body damage would be horrendous. Are you sure they are not changing a section of the frame rail?
If it’s fixed, you are entitled to diminished value. There are independent certified insurance...
The stock stabilizer will not make it pull to one side or the other. Depending on wind and road conditions you may see your steering wheel cocked to the left or right while driving straight. If you have a true pull, check your tire pressure to make sure that one of the fronts is not low and have...
The cold weather steering issue is not related to the steering stabilizer. It is a loss of steering assist from the electric power steering. There is a TSB that was issued in 2018 and a software flash to correct the issue.
Is your Jeep stock?
mid so, it is the steering stabilizer. There were 2 replacements for the 18.
version AE is the latest.
You didn’t have true Death Wobble, you had steering oscillation. Once the stabilizer is replaced, tell your wife all will be fine.
I am a long time Jeeper. My ‘18...
Take it to another dealer. The TSB for the power steering has been out for at least a year and is documented in this forum.
The surging idle is not specific to Jeep. It is common in the 3.6 and is an in and out fix.
2018 JLUR now with 41K miles:
2 steering stabilizers replaced under warranty/tsb recall.
Rear Window replaced for defroster defect.
TSB computer flash for loss of power steering boost in cold weather.
TSB computer flash for surging idle.
ESS battery replaced.
no complaints as I new this was...
Even if the engine stalled there would still be residual power braking on the initial pedal input.
the onboard computer is constantly storing data. If you feel the engine died, there is a data trail to back you up. Just a word of caution—if you want to pursue a legal case, understand that the...
Brake Failure and Steering failure have nothing in common. Sorry, you can loose steering assist but can still steer. You can lose a brake booster but still stop. This is true of all modern vehicles. There is no way you lost the ability to brake and steer, it is not possible.
Did the indicator light come on showing you were engaged in 4 hi or 4 low?
My shifter was so tight when new I had a hard time engaging 4 hi and it jumped out of low because it wasn’t fully engaged.
it’s fine after using it a couple of times.
Not trying to be dis-respectful but the 2 inches of play—is this with the engine running or off?
Play in the steering box would not mean the vehicle won’t track straight. Play means the amount of free turn left or right before steering input is realized.
You have an Electric Power steering...
I would suggest that you rent a wrangler and drive it for a week and see how you like it.
Hertz has some in their fleet and Avis has added JT Gladiators to theirs.
The Jeep will not be as refined as the Lexus/Land Cruiser. I switched from BMW’s to Wrangler’s 9 years ago. It was easy for me...
I replied to your earlier Thread. Go see Ryan at Helfman at I-10 and Silber. He has been the best service advisor that I have ever worked with.
I sent him the suggested Mopar epoxy repair for the defroster but he replaced the entire back window instead.
