Maybe it wasn't the Jeep that was getting " Serviced regularly "We changed the oil in a Jeep (Grand Cherokee) that had gone to 60k without an oil change. We did 500 mile OCI’s for a few months on it and the engine is going strong to this day.
The husband and wife both claimed the other had been getting the vehicle serviced regularly.
The oil filter in it looked worse than this one shown here, the pleats were no longer visible. It was like clay on the paper. The oil that drained out (miraculously there was still about a quart of liquid in it) looked like and had the consistency of melted chocolate.
yupWhat does “won’t take oil anymore” mean?
Is the giant 2” oil fill hole in the center of the engine compartment completely clogged or something? This confuses me.
Edit: it’s amazing the jeep even functioned all the way to 91k with the same old oil without exploding haha
I dont think anyone actually knows how "active" the hybrid interface on the 4xe works yet.Good point, if you only ever use the battery, do you just change oil once a year? I know there is a monitoring system in place, so maybe go by that and 1y at the latest. will ask in the 4xe forum
You’d be surprised. Some people just don’t give a shit and will drive their lease way way WAY over the mileage limit. Uber vehicle etc. and then roll that negative equity into the next one.Not a rental, those companies maintain their vehicles well. A lease would be my guess, but not with those kind of miles in such a short period of time. This is the reason I rarely buy used vehicles. Especially now with so many leases. 3 years at 15k miles per year. Easy to get away with.
