How did you get that name? Did you know it also the name of a brand of powdered milk sold throughout Asia?

Actually Mom was expecting a girl and when I came out. She had to scramble for a name and remembered she had seen the name Milo on a theatre marque on the way to the hospital.

Threw me for a loop the first time I went overseas and saw green cans of Milo chocolate drink mix in the stores.

Took the JKU in to the dealership to get the CEL light checked. It was a misfire code, upon testing they discovered a bad cylinder head. I have noticed it randomly idling rough the past couple weeks. Dealership will order parts and call when they are in. I'm thankful our dealership is a good one and has loaner cars

It hit 22,000 in Big Bear.

The service tech said they've had this issue with the Pentastar motors in the vans in the past, now in the Jeep and they've even replaced a few of them multiple times. He said they finally have a fix and the new head replacements are fixing the problems.

If it's been loosing some compression I guess my mileage and power should improve a bit, at least it would be nice.

I've been following this head issue for quite a while, you have about the same mileage as I do on my 12. I've also seen a few with timing chain problems, but not near as many as the head problem

What were the symptoms?

I had electrical issues right out of the box with my first one in June. They couldn't figure it out in a few days so they actually swapped the jeep,for another. Lol. A month later it too had an electrical no-start issue. Luckily it's all good now.

It was a surprise to me, I figured it was some sensor throwing a code. If you get a CEL soon it's probably the same issue.

Honestly it hasn't had any symptoms that stood out. I'm pretty in tune with my car and the Jeep, I notice every little thing. So much that it drives Mike crazy, lol.

The only think I've notices over the past couple weeks is a rougher idle, usually just when it's cold though. I have been driving my car alot, so the Jeep always feels a little rougher anyhow when I first drive it. I have not noticed any of the ticking I've read about. I listened to it today after I got home from the dealer and still don't hear it. My mileage has been a tiny bit less recently, but I've been driving around town more than normal.

Overall, if the CEL hadn't come on I would not think there was a problem.

I have two full coverage warranties, one thru my insurance and one through Chrysler. I believe one of them is the lifetime warranty, but either way I know the owner of the dealership very well. We have bought 5 cars from him over the years and every one has had excellent service. I'm pretty sure he would help us out in this instance.

The Jeep only has 22,000 miles on it, I wouldn't think any dealership worth a crap would give the customer any problems. Although, I've read some horror stories where they have

I had to run into the grocery store yesterday and it was like a shark feeding frenzy!! I only needed a couple things and actually got a chuckle out of how crazy people are. I walked down one isle and there were 3 of those scooter carts coming at me, ahhh!!!

I did meet a very nice man that was admiring my Jeep in the parking lot. He just bought a 13 JK and wanted my bumper information. Now that's a new pick up line, "Hi, I was just admiring your bumpers, can you give me some information on them" Lol.

I referred him to Dennis, who will owe me a coffee for another referral
