Try to get a look or a picture of the old pump. I'd like to understand the failure mode. For example if the impeller was chewed up it might imply a reduction in coolant flow but if it was something...

I want to know the same thing. My 2012 doesn't tick (yet) but pings in warm weather unless I run 91 octane. Seems like getting the motor to run slightly cooler would be a good idea. I realize it...

I turned it off. I was burning the clutch trying to get it to let me loose taking off from a hill. I could never figure out what it was using to decide when to let off the brakes. I've been...

I don't care about off road stuff. I bought the Jeep because it is the cheapest open top vehicle available and has a good resale value. I might have considered a 2wd model if they made them but it...

I could see a link between a water pump issue and pinging. If the water pump isn't working right there might be localized overheating and that could result in pinging. My 2012 only pings in warm...

Are they saying the pinging is caused by a bad water pump, or was that a completely different issue? I'm a little confused about the repair work.

When I tried 89 in mine I couldn't tell any difference but when I put in a tank of 91 the pinging stopped. I've been able to switch back to 87 with the cold weather. In my case it's related to warm...

You can cycle the key 3 times without starting and leave the key in the on position the last time. The code will be displayed in the odometer.

My 2012 pings in warm weather under part throttle going up hills. I haven't found an answer except to use 91 octane. I checked with my dealer to see if there might be a reflash of the engine...

Maybe ice in the gas lines blocking fuel flow. You don't see that very often in the USA anymore because of the ethanol content here but I don't know if they do that in Europe. Stopping with a warm...

That sound clip doesn't sound too good to me. I can hear something when it's revved. My stock 2012 is quieter than that except I do have some sounds when it's cold that go away after it's warmed up...

On some GM vehicles the tick-tock sound is generated by the sound system and comes out the driver's door speaker. You can actually change the volume through their version of the EVIC.

I don't think the battery disconnect method is going to be a permanent fix. AFAIK the ECU is adaptive all the time. It might take a while but it's going to adjust the tuning until it reaches the...

I tried mid grade during the summer and it didn't make much difference. The Jeep drives so much nicer when it's not pinging that I'm willing to pay the difference, especially when gas is sort of...

I have a very similar pinging under part throttle in my 2012. It's worse in warm weather. No ticking noise at all, just pinging driving up steep hills at part throttle.

Don't mess around with bad brakes. Take it in. This is a total guess on my part but there is a vacuum pump in the system and maybe it's not working.
