There have been cases where the wrong fuel has been offloaded from a tanker to a storage tank at a gas station. Like others have posted, try a tank of high octane (non-ethanol gas if you can find it).
There is another possibility... assuming there is an engine knock sensor, maybe the knock...
Update on OHGR:
It appears that the work to Old House Gap Road (OHGR) was completed this fall.
However, the road has not been reopened and there are gates on both ends.
Rumor has it, the road may never be reopened.
Would like to get a bunch of people together and appeal to the Forest Service...
Engines are expensive.
Quality oil and quality filters are relatively cheap.
IMHO, Fram is cheap stuff (look at the comparisons)
Would never put any Fram product on any vehicle I own.
Use Mobile One and Wixs/Napa Gold Filters on my 3.6 Liter Jeep.
Change oil at 5,000 miles or 50% of life...
As an EE, I am sure there must be away around their stupid fees so that one can get the features that came with the car. I am not going to sign up or have anything where they are trying to extort me for $$$. If they add that crap to my JL (or any other vehicle) I'll either rip that stuff out...
Sorry to hear of your troubles. Not sure I would want a vehicle that someone has done all that disassembly and then reassemble. Doubt it would be like it was when it left the factory. IMHO, work with the insurance folks about totaling the vehicle. If that does not work, may be worth while to...
Don't really care what's in the service book, service providers, lab analysis, oil mf claims, etc. Don't really care about 'free' oil changes. Changing mine about every ~4000 miles (typically about 50% oil life left according to the dash display). Using Mobile and and Wix/Napa Gold oil...
The question was "Which powertrain would you get."
Well, none that are listed.
The best powertrain, IMHO, currently available from the factory is the 3.6 with a manual gearbox.
Three pedals in a Jeep is the only way I role. :D
Sorry to hear about the damage to your Jeep.
This is one of many reasons I never go to the dealership for the "free" oil change. Too many times, the dealership has Jr. change the oil. Often, these 'mechanics' are new to the repair business and don't have any real skills. Just have never had...
Another favorite option is the Blind Spot Monitoring System. With so many crazy drivers out there, nice to know there are some electronics watching my flanks.
How about bringing back Mango Tango.
FCA (or what ever they call themselves) has a similar color for the Dodge Challenger/Charger
If that color came back, that would be a must have Jeep for the garage.
Most likely, most have us have done something stupid in our teenage years.
I do wish a speed recovery for those that are injured.
As a cyclist, the kid should receive something more than a slap on the wrist.
If the kid gets off w/o punishment, what has he learned?
Maybe the kid should ride a...
The right lift, tires, shocks, steering components can make a huge difference in the ride quality of a Jeep.
The lift is one place where it is not recommended to go cheap.
The last thing you want to hear is "you put all this stuff on my Jeep and now the ride quality is terrible."
IMHO, if you...
