    Looks like the V6 isn't going anywhere for some time 😎. It's actually going to be actualized... https://www.globalvillagespace.com/tech/stellantis-allegedly-developing-520-hp-twin-turbo-hurricane-engine-gvs/
  2. Stop Dry Starting your 3.6 with Baxter Performance!

    Did you know that there is no anti-drain back valve in the upper part of your Pentastar 3.6 engine? After 35 minutes the oil has drained back down into the oil pan and when you start it back up, it take approx 3.5 seconds to get the oil back up to where it needs to go to properly lubricate...
  3. Jeep lacks power after turning it on

    Hey 👋 I wanted to see what the forum thinks before I take the jeep to my non-mod friendly dealer and they blame it on my headlights lol. I’ve noticed that after I turn the car on, the radio theme resets (went from 5inch to 8.4 if that matters) and the car won’t really accelerate past 15mph...
  4. Maximize 3.6 Reliability

    Hey all, I know this is kinda a ridiculous question to ask on a CJDR product based on their track records. I got the all gas 3.6 v6 because it was the most tried and true engine for the Jeep that has proved itself for years with some high mileage examples. Of course I know they all have their...
  5. Engine Surge During Braking

    Jan/2023 traveling at 55mph, a vehicle swerved into my lane which required immediate braking. Applying the brake, my 2022 Jeep Wrangler's engine surged, and Jeep would not slow down. I reapplied brake and initially it didn't slow my vehicle. After re-reapplying the brakes, the Jeep responded to...
  6. Bought high mileage engine oil for oil change, is that okay to use on wrangler with 28K miles?

    My wrangler only has 28,000 miles and I accidentally bought the penzoil platinum high mileage engine oil instead of the regular engine oil of the same brand. Is that okay to use on my wrangler with only 28,000 miles? Stupid mistake but I don’t want to go out and buy a new one haha thanks
  7. Rattle upon engine startup 2018 3.6 JL

    So it's a been few months since this noise has been goin off everytime I start the engine and I don't know what it could be I'm thinking it could be the starter or maybe even the timing chain but that's probably rubbish I've searched for this sound problem and some say it's because the oil won't...
  8. Cam shaft position sensor - code po345 & po390

    Hello, A few weeks ago I got those two error codes and took it to the dealer yesterday to get it looked at. During the time the codes were on it felt like there has been a slight loss of power, but I am not completely sure. It also seems to idle a bit rougher and sometimes gives a slight knock...

    I have a 4 door 2019 Wrangler JL 4 doors with 2 liter, and I have a loud Diesel noise on all speeds not just on the first gear or on Reverse even though my engine is Petrol! And sometimes the Jeep has high RPMs and won't change gears even though I'm accelerating slowly and on a normal road...

    Hello All, we just got our first-ever Jeep this week. It is a 2022 Rubicon (V6 + eTorque + start/stop). It has been only 5 days since we got this jeep. My wife was accelerating to merge onto the freeway the jeep abruptly stopped. It looked like it downshifted to accelerate, and the engine...
  11. Idle vibes?

    is it normal if the 3.6 to have a bit of vibration at idle? My Jeep is a 2018 with 30k and I’ve noticed it’s got a bit of a vibration at idle. I’ve already had the vibration/ ac fan flash done already. Wondering if I should worry or just chalk it up to a Jeep thing.

    Anyone had the rough idle/ loud after fan update done to their Jeep. I’ve got a bit idle vibration and I am wondering if this update will fix it. The vibration isn’t heavy but it’s definitely noticeable.
  14. Spark knock?

    Hey all, I’ve got 30k on my 3.6 rubi, and I’ve noticed sometimes between 2nd and 3rd gear around 2k to 3k rpm, I’m getting what some are referring to as “spark knock”. No loss in power, just sound a little like a diesel for a couple turns. I’m running shell 91 and it seems to help and but. Has...
  15. How do Cold Starts Work on the 4xe?

    I have a question for all the 4xe owners regarding something I’ve wondered about recently. I have the 3.6 pentastar and I warm up my engine for about ten minutes during every cold Start. I’ve read on the forums that for the 4xe the engine does not turn on when the start button is pressed...

  17. Oil filter tip broke off

    So I'm changing the oil and the oil filter tip broke off and there might be a plastic piece inside. Should I be worried about it ? I was pulling out the filter and the tip just snapped off its sitting in there still. There are four prongs on the tip and one is missing.
  18. Insight Needed - Engine Clicking Sound (video)

    I was getting my son a DQ, had the top and doors off in the drive through and heard this loud clicking sound reverberate off the building. I thought for sure it was the car in front of my, not my 2020 with under 1,600 miles... until they drove off. It’s coming from the Jeep. Not sure if this...
  19. 3.6L vs 2.0 turbo?? Pros and cons of both??

    Hi all, I am new to the JL fam. I currently am a loud and proud owner of a 2005 TJ with the 4 liter straight 6, but recently have been having issues with it (body rust as I live on the East Coast) and have ultimately decided to put it up for sale and purchase a newer Jeep. I will be outright...
