Hi All,

Well finally had the Provent Catch Can installed on Friday.

Very happy with the job - neat install by Westpoint Jeep in Brisbane. Yes pics to come soon!

Have run the drain pipe down under the car and cabled tied under there. Can access it fine.

Will get the pics done soon.

Cheers,
Sally

So I'm guessing it is throwing P0299 error? I don't think there are any recalls or TSBs for that one. You can search them here:

http://www.wk2jeeps.com/wk2_tsb.htm

It sounds like a leak in the turbo, could be the EGR valve or boost control valve or something.... Almost sounds like someone got rid of it because they had a problem they couldn't get fixed. But Jeep should fix it under warranty. You might just have to be patient.

edit: perhaps the VGT actuator....

It's not a graphite limited by any chance?

Hmmm, is the previous owner listed in the handbook? Because that guy Teg Sethi who made the video about buying a lemon jeep just sold his dark grey limited diesel back to Jeep in Melbourne about 3 months ago. He had a problem with the turbo that they couldn't fix, they kept replacing the turbo actuator and it kept flashing engine light warnings and registering turbo related codes.

The name is there as I remember looking at it when I was searching for servicing records. I cant remember it being a strange name like that tho but its got me thinking. I didn't think it was traded all that long ago, cert not three months ago. It was traded on a BMW sedan recently.

Did it have color coded wheels, dark grey

Will check it out thanks Benn0

No, they were stock wheels, so maybe a different one.... anyway, hopefully they will work it out and fix it.

well Jeep have had it for 2 days now. They drove it home last night and nothing happened. They drove it again this arvo and it shat itself. Limped back to Jeep and it threw up the same turbo boost and maf faults. I told them that yesterday.

This thing is like the desal plant. Im paying to own it but I never see it working. Behond over it.

Sorry to hear about your problems mate – it really annoys me that you can’t take it back and get your money back (assuming that’s what you’d now do). If you buy something from a shop, get it home and it doesn’t work they legally have to give you your money back. Why is it not the same with cars!

I should also mention – and forgive me, I’m not rubbing your nose in it, but I’m just about to click over 90,000kms on my GC and all have been trouble free (as far as the car goes – dealership is a different story!)

cheers Galvo,

We have discussed getting our trade in back and giving back the GC but I know there is a great car in the GC somewhere so I'm willing to see it through.

We have done a history check with the dealership where it was originally purchased and serviced and it has no history of this issue so that is sort of refreshing to know.
