    Have a p0302 a p0304 and the downstream O2 sensor light intermittently on the same side. Jeep also has intermittent rough idle. No tick. No loss of power. And normal fuel economy. I'm at a loss.

    Helllooo Is stole the following pic from this thread: In about the center of the pic there is a hose, with a yellowish plastic endpiece with a greenish cap. What is this for? Kinda looks like the breather on my 2016 JKU, except mine is in the wheewell...

    2013 JKU with 92K miles. I may be having two separate issues... I just started hearing a pretty noticeable tapping noise that appears to be coming from the passenger side of the engine: The first thing I did was check the oil. I changed it 900 miles ago and it was down between a half to...

    In my journey to pick up a later model JKU, I've stared at a number of these engines now and the black intake manifold / plenum has always fascinated me. And until reading another thread here, it did not fully strike me that the entire intake manifold might be made of plastic. PN...

    I am trying to figure out what other engines will fit in a 2013 JK. Will an engine from a Dodge Charger, Challenger, Caravan, Durango, etc. fit. They are all 3.6L Pentastar but are they interchangeable. Is there a cross reference that will have that information. Thank you to everyone for the...

    I am in the market for a new to me Jeep. I have roughly $12,500 cash to put down on this new Jeep. The reason I have the cash is because my current car is paid off. Being that I don't have a car payment now one of my deciding factors with getting a Jeep is whether or not to have a car...

    Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this situation... I am asking for fact and experiences, as well as opinion. :) 2012 JKU 68k miles: I started the engine and drove about 15 fwy miles to run an errand. When I came out and stared the engine I heard a loud ticking noise immediately. It...

    To some these won't come as a surprise, but there is a strange mix of the errors and so the conspiracy theorist in me comes out a little. This has all happened in the span of 4 weeks. There's some useful stuff in here to consider - stuff I wish I knew before going ahead with some of the work...

    Hey guys got a question: So I've had my current JKU for over a year and half now and I remember noticing this sound since the test drive. The PO installed a Banks Air Ram and I knew that prior to purchase, and I don't even know if its related, but every time I shift (its a 6 spd) at exactly...

    I got a P0520 code not long ago. And my jeep (2013 JKU with the 3.6, auto, 75000km) started idling rough at 700rpm. I was informed by the dealer that warranty doesn't cover. So I ordered the part. (As for the rough idle, I started running premium, my air filter was new and my throttle body...

    Hi all, Shopping around for Jeeps and I'd love to get a used JK. I'm not looking to drop more than $25k and I'd prefer to keep it below around 70,000 miles. A lot of 2007-2011s fit into that range but I've heard some horror stories about the 3.8L V-6 that sits under those hoods. I've heard...

    Fast startup idle seems to be a common issue with Pentastar JKs. I have read many threads on this on Wrangler forum but will admit to still being confused as to startup RPM. Maybe some of you more knowledgeable JKers can help. I live in south Florida, not exactly a challenging place for...

    An article published by trucktrend.com (cached image of page) says that the new Wrangler will have an updated Pentastar with exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and a higher compression ratio (CR) but will not have gasoline direct injection (GDI). Seeing how the compression ratio is already rather...

    Hi all, I am a former jeeper looking to buy again before the end of the year. I ideally want a new (or 2012+ used) Rubicon 2 door manual, but I don't know if I can afford it. I want to keep the Jeep I buy for a long time and eventually make it a trailer queen/weekend wheeling toy. I like the...

    I am finding a little oil on my air filter and inside the duct from the filter. Is this normal? 2012 3.6 Pentastar JKU.
