So, I just bought my 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Summit with a Hemi (15k miles) 3 days ago and this morning at startup... blue smoke... yeah talk about serious buyers remorse . So has anyone found a solution that works for this problem. This is really depressing since I was giving the WK2 the benefit of the doubt despite reading allot of the posts here on JeepForum

^^^ - Sounds like I have pretty much the same GC as you and no problems with blue smoke but I park it on level ground. Some say the smoke shows up after parking on an incline .. don't know. Also, a lot of folks, including myself, are finding out that the oil dip-stick shows oil level is at the low/add marker when it is actually full. I found this out after my 1st oil/filter change recently. This may be causing some unaware folks to overfill, which may cause some smoky exhaust issues, and maybe some oil usage issues as well.

Exactly. If you put more than 7 quarts in then you will get the smoke. The dipsticks are wrong. 7 quarts bring it to the add line. When I put in 7 quarts, then the smoking stopped. Chrysler told me not to put anymore than 7 quarts no matter what the dipstick reads.

Since my initial observation I haven't noticed anymore oil being burned (blue smoke). But I'm thinking about just going ahead and doing an oil change anyway despite the dealer having changed it already somewhat recently. I was going to put in Royal Purple 5W-20. Prior to this Jeep I had an m3 and when I first bought it 1 year old with 9k miles, it seemed to burn some oil as the electronic gauge reported a steady drop (albeit slowly) of the amount of oil in the engine, but eventually after driving it more and more I noticed that the engine no longer burned any more oil and the level stayed at a constant so I am going to give this Jeep the benefit of the doubt also before jumping the gun and trying to get the dealer to overhaul the engine to replace any gaskets.

See my post #73 from 12/14/13. I had the oil pan replaced in December 2013 with the redesigned pan and it did not solve the smoking problem. I think they over filled it as referenced it other post here.

Go to the dealer and reference a Star Case#S130900012. Also Service Bulletin NUMBER: 09-002-13, DATEd: October 09, 2013

I want to update this post and report that despite the dealer and Dodge replacement of the oil pan and reprogramming but the problem of blue oil smoke on start up still exists. they are currently telling me that they have done everything they can.

I feel a "little" better after finding this post. I just bought a 2014 GC Summit with the Hemi. I have a steep driveway and after it sat for a week while on vacation, I noticed a cloud of bluish white smoke on the first start up. I have not noticed it since thankfully.

Mine had a build date of 08/13 and currently has 1321 miles on the clock. Anyone think it is worth having the redesigned oil pan installed, or was this already included as of this build date?

Yeah, I wouldn't be too worried about it. I think, especially since your vehicle is so new, that there may be some gaskets or related that need to be "broken in". When I first bought my Jeep it was sitting on the lot for 2 weeks then I brought it home and it made a little puff of blue smoke when it was left at an angle. But ever since, [knock on wood] no smoke 2-3 weeks later. I wouldn't be worried about it unless it becomes something that is recurring on multiple occasions. But anyways, especially since you said you were on vacation and the engine hadn't run for sometime I wouldn't worry about it, just a rare occurrence, like spotting a yetti .

Huge puff today. I had moved the Jeep in and out of the garage a few times prior, so like 20 second run time. Each time it smelled a little like oil burn but I didn't see any. When I started it up this morning a huge could. I guess the oil had gathered in the exhaust. So crazy to see a 2014 vehicle start up and smell like a 40 year old farm truck.
