I'm sure hoping they can fix this I'm just visiting here where.I.bought the jeep and when.I go.home I'm hundreds of miles.from a dealership. This is my first jeep I hope its not going to.be a.lemon. its.just that we only have 3,000 miles on it. That's.nothing Compared to how many more trails.and things.I.need.it.to.do. especialy for the 30 grand I spent. Any.tips would.help.

Is it a manual or automatic. I have a manual and it make a squeaking noise but when I push the clutch it goes away and the dealership said it was a pin wheel or flywheel not sure which one. I never had it fixed I don't even notice it anymore.

Check out this thread and watch the videos. If your sound is similar, call up the dealer and tell them you are pretty certain you have a bad waterpump. Show them the thread if you want. Have them check the part # and see if it's still on backorder before driving out there.

Good luck and post in that thread if you have any further trouble/questions.

Video tape the technician saying it isn't a problem that way you can post it and use it as a good complaint against Chrysler. The dealership will sing a different tune once you video them
