Summary of Complaint

My Jeep Wrangler was having significant engine issues with shaking, random noises and vibrations, and it turns out the Engine Oil Cooler had a crack in it and leaked oil all over the intake manifold/under carriage of the vehicle. Upon speaking with over 15 dealerships in Southern California, they noted that there were over 40,000 of this replacement part on back-order as of March 2020. I had to wait two months to get the part delivered, which meant I went two months without a vehicle, and then had to pay over $800+ on a part + labor on an item that should absolutely be recalled. There are thousands of posts on Wrangler Forum and other Jeep pages that share the exact same issue. Jeep has ignored this issue since 2014, and it's only occurring in more vehicles now. This part breaking can cause engine seizure or failure and should not be a cost to the customer as there is CLEARLY a nation-wide problem that Chrysler is ignoring.

Summary of Complaint

IT STARTED WITH A SMALL OIL LEAK THAT TURNED INTO A BIG OIL LEAK COMING FROM THE OIL COOLER. THE HIGH THE TEMPERATURE THE MORE OIL THAT WOULD COME OUT. THIS OIL IS MIXED WITH COOLANT AS WELL. THIS IS NOT SAFE BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN IT'S GOING TO CRACK AND THEY WILL NOT COVER UNDER WARRANTY OR EXTENDED WARRANTY. THIS CAN BE A REAL SAFETY ISSUE BECAUSE YOU CAN LOSE OIL PRESSURE WHICH CAN CAUSE ENGINE TO FAIL.

Summary of Complaint

NOTICED AN OIL SPOT IN THE DRIVEWAY. TOOK THE JEEP TO MY MECHANIC WHO INFORMED ME THAT THIS IS A CRACKED OIL COOLER. HE SAID THAT THIS IS THE THIRD ONE HE HAS SEEN AND THE SECOND IN 2 WEEKS. ON THE FIRST ONE HE DID HE SAID IT TOOK 6 WEEKS TO GET THE PART AND THAT HIS CUSTOMER DROVE 6 HOURS TO GET THE PART. THERE IS A SEVERE BACK ORDER ON THESE PARTS. I HAVE NOW BEEN WAITING FOR 3 WEEKS FOR MY MECHANIC TO GET THE PART. HE WAS TOLD BY CHRYSLER THAT THE NEXT EXPECTED DELIVERY WOULD AROUND MAY 3RD. THAT WILL BE 6 WEEKS OF NOT BEING ABLE TO USE MY VEHICLE. THAT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. I HAVE DONE SOME RESEARCH ON THE INTERNET AND I AM FINDING THAT THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM THAT CHRYSLER HAS KNOWN ABOUT SINCE 2014. IT STARTED TO HAPPEN TO VEHICLES WITH LESS THAN 5,000 MILES ON THEM. THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL ON THIS PART. OR AT LEAST REDESIGN AND MAKE ENOUGH PARTS TO COVER THE DEMAND. WHY HAS THIS BEEN ALLOWED TO HAPPEN? $1000 TO REPAIR THIS PROBLEM.

OIL COOLER HOUSING IS MADE WITH 2 TYPES OF MATERIAL THAT DOESN'T HAVE EQUAL CONTROL OF OIL EXPANSION WHEN IT IS HOT, THEREFORE HAVING TO REPLACE A OIL COOLER HOUSING BECAUSE OF THE PLASTIC PART OF IT CRACKED RESULTING TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE KIT. I HAD TO REPLACE IT 3 TIMES, BUT ONLY PAID ONCE OF THE REPLACEMENT COST. THE OTHER 2 WERE UNDER WARRANTY. I'VE RESEARCHED THAT THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE WITH JEEP PART, PARTICULARLY WITH THE OIL COOLER HOUSING KIT. METAL AND PLASTIC SHOULD NOT BE A COMPLETE KIT TO CONTROL THE OIL FLOW.

Summary of Complaint

FOLLOWING A MANDATORY PCM FLASH RECALL, I'VE BEEN HAVING TROUBLE WITH MY '14 JEEP WRANGLER'S AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. IT WILL INTERMITTENTLY NOT UPSHIFT UNDER HEAVY ACCELERATION. INSTEAD, THE ENGINE REVS TO 4K, AND IT WILL STAY IN THE GEAR. ONLY IF I LET OFF THE GAS AND ALLOW IT TO RESET, THEN GRADUALLY ACCELERATE WILL IT WORK PROPERLY. THE DEALERSHIP AND JEEP HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO FIGURE OUT THE ISSUE, HAVING REPLACED THE ENTIRE TRANSMISSION, PCM, AND ECU, AS WELL AS NUMEROUS OTHER PARTS AND SENSORS. I FULLY BELIEVE THIS IS COMPUTER SOFTWARE RELATED, BUT THE MANUFACTURER IS REFUSING TO ACKNOWLEDGE THIS AS A POTENTIAL ISSUE. FOR THE LONGEST TIME, I WAS NOT ABLE TO GET A DTC CODE, BUT MOST RECENTLY FOUND A STORED ONE THAT APPEARS TO DIRECT THE ISSUE TO THE CAN-BUS COMMUNICATION ISSUE. ATTACHING SCREENSHOT.
