    I have a 2012 Jeep. It through a p0302 code and I take it to the dealership just to be told that it needs the head work done that plagues the crap out of these 3.6's but I'm 2 weeks out of the 10 year 150,000 mile extended warranty and it's gonna be $4,100.00.

    2012 unlimited with a 3.6. The other day while driving the jeep was bumped into or went into first gear as I was getting on the highway. The engine revved up and acted like it couldn't get any more fuel. Now at 3,400rpm's the transmission will not down shift. It almost feels like an older...
