A little at idle. You feel the cylinder misfire (I think). I'm sure the dealer will take care of it, but it's pretty annoying. Glad I found the thread, I will have to follow your progress.

Hmm...yea Jceo noticed a bit different ride quality I think. I'm sure the dealer will be able to diagnose but make sure you ask them if they inspected for wear on the cam lobes.

Hope its not in the shop too long :/

So.. this just happened to my 2013 JKU with 3700 miles, getting replaced right now. Weird thing no code was thrown that I was able to see by doing the key trick. ECO didn't work and ran rough for a short time.

I had the cam phasers done on my 2012 at around 45000km on the odometer. Not sure if I'm nuts or not but after they did them my mileage seemed to become more consistent.

On my 2015 at 2200 miles (so 2 days ago), I had the exhaust cam phazer, actuator and cam sensors go bad.

I started it up in the morning and it was running rough and the RPMS would fluctuate from 500-1000 rpms at idle. I drove it to the dealer with no power and they had it fixed in 6 hours.
