9k post CAT replacement with no problems
I have a 2014 Summit Diesel and had my CAT replaced in January. I now have 41,000 miles on mine. Lots of issues before, and none since. I have about 13,000 on the new CAT. before the replacement, I have issues with there DEF. Not a single incident since (knock on wood). It is going in for another oil change and tire rotation tomorrow. I bought the extended warranty after the CAT replacement, worked thing wouldn't improve, but again, not a single issue. Very happy after 41,000 miles. I have averaged almost 28 MPG during those miles.I am just wondering if anyone has had problems since the cat replacement and how many miles since the replacement. I have about 3 thousand and trouble free. hoping that they figured it all out
Well we won in the end.. Chrysler bought our jeep back through lemon law after we seeked out a Lemon Lawyer. The sad fact that it had to really come down to that and that they still tried to refuse to pay back our 3,000 dollars! We asked Chrysler for a replacement vehicle which they refused, and stated they were going to attempt to fix it again. We sent all our repair documentation to the lawyers and within two weeks Chrysler stated they would buy the vehicle back. In the end they had to pay for all fees including the lawyer fees. I still miss my jeep but not their horrible customer service. The whole process in all took about 4 months until the jeep was gone. I'm glad you guys are no longer having issues!I agree...well documented.
I used this forum and knowledge gained when I moved our service to our current dealer. Very pleased...No more guesswork.
8 years or 80,000 miles, whichever comes first. Important to keep in mind if you drive a lot like I do. I had CAT replacement at 19k miles and now have 38k. I'll hit 80k long before 8 years.New site member here. I have an early (purchased December 2013) Diesel GJC. All was fine until 21000 miles or so. DEF issues with check engine light constantly on. Drove for a few weeks without problems, but having a big trip planned (wife was going with freinds) decided to have it looked into. Called back same day and was told the whole catalytic converter/DEF system needed to re replaced. absolutely no dicking around by me excellant dealer. Took 5 days with free rental (dart). So I had to drive my chellenger HC around (oh he pain .
Now with a few thousand miles no problems at all. I'm not even getting the catayltic needs to be recycled message any more (ie drive 60 miles etc...)
Gas mileage even better. Hit 37 mpg n the flats out of Va beach with 5 passengers and gear. Averaged just over 30 mpg for about 400 mile trip to the mountains and back.
Was told the replacement CC was the issue and it was redesigned and should see no more problems.
At this point am very happy and hope to keep her for a long time. The catalytic system/urea injection is covered for 8 years.
Was also lead to beleive that all 14's would need this replacement at some time.
See the thread called 'Transmission Slipping' Transmission Slipping | Diesel Jeep ForumI had a funny thing happen twice now. Driving in 40mph traffic, when a drivetrain shudder occurred. It caught me off guard both times, so I haven't been able to pin it down to engine or trans.
Next time I'll hurry and paddle shift into a different gear to see if it stops.
The shudder lasts for only about 10 seconds, then normal operation resumes.
Anyone else getting this..???

NO CAT PROBLEMS BUT I HAD THIS.I am just wondering if anyone has had problems since the cat replacement and how many miles since the replacement. I have about 3 thousand and trouble free. hoping that they figured it all out
noticing the same thing about my DEF gauge. I just had the DEF topped off when I had it in for an oil change and a day or 2 later it's showing less than 3/4. Also, recently when the gauge showed almost empty (around 1/4) I put it 5 gallons and it over flowed. Anyone else?I have 2,000 miles on the replacement cat with no CEL's. But my DEF gauge is very erratic....... it could have been before and I just wasn't paying attention. Also I think my DEF was froze until recently. Emissions has not cleared... the dealer said it needs to be driven with the temp above 50..... Still waiting. I have a blue tooth OBDII and Torque Pro on my droid so I will know when it clears. Here in the Boston area we have had the worst winter in recorded history. It's snowing as I type...... My 4x2 with snow tires and 120 pounds of sand in the back handles all this snow just fine. Not missing the AWD. Still the first cat didn't start acting up until 8500 miles and I think that's avg. for ones that did. So time will tell.
