Jeep Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome to Just Answer!
I noticed you asked this question before and never accepted your answer. Were you not satisfied with the answer and wanted a second opinion?
Does it burn a bunch of oil on long trips highway driving or does it just burn oil with city driving and idling?
Blue smoke on start up is usually related to valve stem seals or worn guides. When you shut the engine off the oil from the top end will leak down into the combustion chamber and cause blue smoke on the next start up. Usually when the problem is valve stem seals it will burn more oil during city driving when there is more intake vacuum. If the seals are leaking bad enough it will blow blue smoke during low speed driving and will not be noticed on the highway.
Does you truck ping(spark knock) when under load?
Anytime you get a puff of blue during start up, it is almost always related to valve stem seals or worn guides. The first thing I would do is pull out all the spark plugs and see if you can narrow down which cylinder is burning oil. If you have a spark plug with lots of ash deposits on it, that is a good sign that cylinder is burning oil.
Check this out and we can go from there!
Rings won't cause a puff of blue during start up. The oil is leaking into the engine when the engine is off and the only way it can leak into the combustion chamber is past the valves.
Did you check the lower intake pan gasket for leaks? I can help you do this, it is a simple test!
First remove the PCV valve from the right valve cover and leave it attached to the hose. Then remove the crankcase breather hose from the air cleaner and plug the hose.
Then start the engine and hold your thumb over the opening in the valve cover where the PCV valve was and after 10 seconds see if there is pressure building up or suction. It should build up pressure and when you remove your thumb you should notice blow by coming out. If the gasket was leaking you will feel suction.
Try this and let me know!
You are very welcome!!
Thank you very much,
The only way to program another keyless entry transmitter is by using a high end scan tool like the factory DRB3. You have to select body from the main menu, then door module and then misc. The scan tool guides you though the procedure.
If you don't have access to a high end scan tool, you will have to get this done at the dealer. This only takes 10 minutes to do, so if you want to do this, give a dealer a call and see what they will charge and let them know it only takes 10 minutes.
I hope this helps, let me know!
Not that I am aware of! I know you can do this on newer vehicles but all it says for yours is to use the scan tool.
Do you have the owners manual?
If the system was that much over full, it could have been causing it to burn oil. 1 quart over full isn't bad, but 2 quarts over is a bit much!
I just went through the service manual and it doesn't show any other way of programming the transmitter. I know with all newer Chrysler transmitters you need one transmitter in order to program another one. it has been quite a while since I have programmed one of these and I always did it with the scan tool.
You are very welcome!
