Mobile1 Synthetic. I guess now is the time to tell the whole story. The oil was last changed in August and I've driven 2,000 miles since then.
I noticed my engine was ticking on Thursday, so I popped the hood & checked the oil. She was bone dry. I haven't seen anything to indicate that oil had been leaking. It wasn't running hot, normal temperature on the gauge. Filled her back up with oil on Thursday but the ticking has gotten slightly worse and there is a soft knocking now. It's beyond me how there was no oil after 2,000 miles.
I literally just got back from the dealership. They won't get to it until Monday, however, the mechanic took a listen to it. He said the unthinkable, "it doesn't sound good, from my experience with this noise it's never been good. We may have to drop it and repair some portion of the engine." Ugh, I'm trying to watch football but I just can't seem to focus knowing that.
Also, didn't mean to hijack, I saw Delray subject and thought some of you might have some insight!

Anyone been to the Jeep dealership in Delray? I've got a ticking sound under the hood at idle, then after it gets above 3,000 RPMs it begins to knock. I just moved down recently & don't know of any mechanics down here if you know of one feel free to share.
I've got an 07 JKU X bare bone stock.
Also, I'm always up for a meet.

man that sucks about the tranny, after the last 2 trips to corbett i think im going to stay away from the deeper water holes...sticking to mud/sugar sand seem like a much better idea.
|02-05-2013 05:04 PM|
too much water in the trans and I drove it for too long after equals rebuild trans... But they are going to throw in some upgrades and install my SYE and DS so hopefully this doesnt happen again. What happened was I bottomed out and the skid got stuck on the mud, like a high center, all 4 wheels were spinning but the Jeep couldnt get traction. expensive lesson...
didnt do as much recording cause I didnt have enough space on my phone, and I didnt get a recording of me getting stuck >< bummer lol
It was in there deep:

|JKNoor||Yup sunday was fun. Thank for the pics Ramon - will def have to meet up with you guys again. Has anyone tried going though all of trail 3? looking at the corbett map it looks like it loops all the way around and we could connect with another trail towards the north entrance to get back on the main road. My brother and I are thinking about trying it since its getting pretty dry out there...anyone else up for spending a day in the swamp?|

|LilYeller||interesting, so if the strap breaks then the hook will go flying? Or do you mean that the hook will break or slip off and then go flying? Just trying to understand everyones problem with these things other than "because everyone else says so"|
