What did you say to get them to do that? I am the second owner and it has 46,xxx miles.

I had the option to but the last time I bought an extended warranty it was pointless because my jeep was lifted and modded. Do you pay a deductible to have warranty work done on it?

yeah, $100 per issue
certain mods are allowed, check with the dealer if your mods void the warranty. i know for our rubicon they said its ok to lift it, to regear it and to put bigger tires.

The spark plugs DOES play a role in smooth idle.

Yes and so does carbon buildup in the intake system.But any new plug will make a difference when replacing old plugs,just those +2/+4 junk plugs cause issues down the road in these engines.

I has been over a week and 2 fill ups since I installed the Bosch Platinum spark plugs, and my gas mileage stayed about the same but my idle is phenomonal! Love when I have to look at the dash to make sure the engine is on.
In all fairness, I cleaned my throttle body before I installed the Bosch's...... I also cleaned it before I installed the NGK's and never got that smooth idle. go figure!

All types of ignition system have a common goal .... to provide a spark for combustion. How efficient it is doen depends on the spark plug.

I was at 39,500, and I just told them what it was doing at every fill up, and asked if they had seen any that had done that before. They said they had and they would see what they could do.

Would you call the service department to see if you mods are valid?

Jeep is making me pay 200 bucks for 657 dollar repair for the gas gushing issue. If anyone else has the issue just take plenty of videos of it happening keep your receipts and be nice to the chrysler rep on the other end of the line I was trying for full coverage but something is better then nothing.
