My JK died with 397km on the clock outside Horsham on the 14th of Feb

Parts for the DPF were ordered from the US on the 16th.

Its now March 2nd, and I'm waiting for them to call me back with details of where the parts are (not at the dealer in Ballarat) and when I will get my brand new Jeep back.

Based on the answer today, I'll decide which manager at Jeep Australia is going to get my phone call. I'm going to ask (demand?) that they remove the parts from a stock vehicle and get mine back on the road if its going to take too long.

Hope its covered by warranty..... you wouldn't want to buy four new injectors let alone a new engine. Last set i bought for a DI Pug ( Bosch injectors just like the JK ) cost almost $900 each with employee discount.

Scheiße! Was it from Chrysler Australia?? A friend of mine bought an injector (OEM 68042029AA, Bosch 0445115067) from eBay shop in Germany for 300 €...

Looks like I'll be discussing my Jeep with the MD of Jeep Australia tomorrow

Is there anything i need to specifically watch out for? Even just model specific?

I have searched through a few jeep forums and haven't really found anything or anyone who has had a big issue with the 2.8L CRD motors?!?!?

Any help appreciated.

Cheers,
Ryan
Mine has done 35,000 and not missed a beat.

like others have stated the VM 2.8 is a cracker of a motor !! I've done 180,000 now and the engine has given me zero issues. I use a mate for oil changes and I'm shocked that its has littllest oil consuption of any motor I've owned in 20years. Performance is good as is economy.
