Replacement motor?

I have a 2010 Unlimited Sport, and about 5 months ago I noticed oil level was low between oil changes. After 3 attempts at getting a good oil consumption test the engine failed. Have 47k on it. Warranty covered engine replacement. Now 4 days later I'm noticing the engine cranking a little longer before starting. Only in the morning. It used to start after on quick key turn. Today engine light comes on and temperature gauge never moved from the C position. I took it in and they say it might be the coolant sensor and wanted 72 bucks to replace. My question is should I question this? The jeep ran wonderful, not a single issue. Just used oil. The dealership says nothing they did had anything to do with this sensor issue. I'd appreciate any input on this. Thanks

Did they tell you what codes were stored?

If I got a code 4 days after a warranty engine replacement and the dealership pulled this crap.......

1. talk to the service manager.
2. talk to the dealer's GM
3. if they still won't help you, call Chrysler
4. don't take no for an answer!

How can the dealer be trying to charge you to replace a failed component on an engine they replaced four days ago?

48491 verified code for engine temp sensor-circuit performance. This is what paperwork says. They cleared it so ill have to wait and see if it comes on again.

Not sure but they tried. They checked everything and cleared the engine light.
