Grand Cherokee 6-cyl Diesel

  • 8,000 miles


While driving up a grade at 50 mph, vehicle began to shake/shudder/vibrate. I had to tramp the accelerator to engage the transmission to work through the situation. This has happened at least a dozen times. Dealer has not been able to replicate the condition. The catalytic converter is being replaced on 7/16. I do not know if this is the cause of the problem.

Grand Cherokee 6-cyl Diesel

Hit a puddle at approximately 50 mph and shortly after the check engine light illuminated and service def system - see dealer message appeared on dash. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer and told the def (diesel exhaust fluid) injector needed to be replaced. The vehicle could not be driven until it was repaired.

I have the new ecodiesel!!! yes this is an awesome vehicle but... after filing the vehicle up for the first time the issue was noticed while pulling the fuel nozzle from the vehicles fuel neck. The capless green fuel neck came separated from the vehicle. Once the car was turned back on the def service warning comes on the dash. This is with less than 300 miles!!!
