  1. Not Starting Jeep "THING"

    Hello there my friend, and welcome to Chrysler, I mean Fiat, or Fiat Chrysler whatever. Yes, gremlins do exist, and they love jeeps. They really used to love Fiats back in the 70's and 80's before Fiat shut down. Now the gremlims get both.
  2. QTDDTOT: Questions that don't deserve their own thread

    Thank you for your post. I didn't know until you pointed it out that a person can suffer from parody, sarcasm, or trolling. I might have all three conditions at once, if that is possible. Hopefully my pharmacist or local drug dealer has something I can take for this. But I prefer the drug dealer.
  3. QTDDTOT: Questions that don't deserve their own thread

    Oh boy, thank you for this thread. I have a bunch of those. Been too embarrassed to create a thread, but now I feel like this is a safe space, so here goes. 1. What does "Jeep" stand for? 2. What kind of cow do they make the leather steering wheel from? 3. Where does the oil go? Do I pour it...
  4. One-Touch Roof Not Removable?

    Wow. I am really sorry to tell you it is not really meant to be removed, ever. Sure you can, but good luck getting that top to ever close properly again. I want to have sympathy for you. I really do. But I am having a hard time with understanding how you can go through the whole process...
  5. No 3.6 auto with out ETORQUE?

    Ok read through al these posts. I don't understand all the fretting over e-torque. All etorque is, really, just a very small belt driven electric generator/motor in place of the alternator. The battery pack is cooled by lines running coolant. Just like the antifreeze and coolant lines for the...
  6. 2.0T eTorque vs Non eTorque? - anyone driven both?

    This. Reading through this (very entertaining and informative) thread, anyone who thinks they are deftly avoiding etorque type motors and "battery coolant" are deluding themselves. This is just the start. Expensive battery packs employing liquid cooling are here, and here for good. They are...
  7. UPR vs MISHIMOTO OIL Catch Can

    My 2 cents: You don't really need a catch can on a port injected engine like the pentastar 3.6 because the fuel from the injectors basically washes over the backside of the intake valves as it enters the combustion chamber. So there is a constant cleaning process of sorts with respect to any oil...
  8. 2.0T eTorque is going to be used by Maserati

    It's amazing really. If I had Maserati money, and I found out my $100,000 + sports car had a 4 cylinder turbo engine with those numbers, and it is basically a Jeep engine, while on my way out the door I would ask the salesman where the nearest Porsche dealer is (and I would also ask if he had...
  9. What exactly is the benefit of the $1,500 V6 upgrade on a Sport S?

    This is absolutely true. I have a good deal of experience from my 2.3L Turbo Ecoboost Mustang. Great engine and I had no complaints while I owned it. I ran a catch can because of the carbon deposit issue. The Mustang has a digital boost gauge that you can leave on the display all the time, so...
  10. What exactly is the benefit of the $1,500 V6 upgrade on a Sport S?

    Has your buddy put a camera scope down the intake valve area ot visually looked to see how much is caked up on the valves? If he has, and there is no build up I would very surprised. If he ran a catch can, low or no buildup is plausible. If you google around and also on you tube, you will see...
  11. What exactly is the benefit of the $1,500 V6 upgrade on a Sport S?

    That is all very true. It will be the proverbial "next guy's" problem at that point. However, I suppose once word gets out about all those 2.0's with over 100K miles and carbon deposit issues, resale values will suffer.
  12. What exactly is the benefit of the $1,500 V6 upgrade on a Sport S?

    Manual versus auto I assume. Can;t say I have FCA's thought processes on pricing strategy figured out.
  13. What exactly is the benefit of the $1,500 V6 upgrade on a Sport S?

    FCA simply wants more people to buy the 4 cylinder. They made a bunch of them I am sure and need to move them. FCA likely plans to phase out the 3.6 in a few years so they need to acclimate the customer to the 4 cyl turbo. Others are right that FCA wants to make you pay a fine for the 3.6 as...
  14. Is it really a SAHARA or am i being a ID10T here?

    I believe the Altitude is technically a Sahara, but they don't slap Sahara all over it, and probably intentionally changed the dash start up routine so it doesn't say Sahara. They want people who paid more for the Altitude trim to feel like they got something more/better than a gussied up...
  15. Removed the engine cover.

    This is totally a tangent, but does anyone else look at a modern engine, with it absolute mess of wires, metal, and plastic, and be amazed how it all magically works together and moves you down the road. Its very cool really.
  16. Removed the engine cover.

    Maybe he is located someplace else . . .
  17. 2021 Jeep Wrangler Official Specs & Details. 80th Anniversary and Islander Editions Announced

    I always loved how they could build all that stuff, but nobody could fix a 5 x 5 foot hole in the boat's hull. And Maryanne and Ginger never getting together. Made no sense at all.
  18. JL Window Sticker and Build Sheet Order Tracking

    Yea, I hear you. My dad was a warehouse laborer, so no trust fund unfortunately. So if I want a Jeep, I have to borrow. I suppose my theory is you only live once and 3% is a small price to pay. It a depreciating asset anyway, so you'll lose money no matter what, just a matter of how much. My old...
