I've already said I dunno how many times what the permanent fix is but I will say it again.
1.Buy a new OPDA
2.Install a zerk fitting to facilitate the ability to lubricate the upper bushing withe grease.
3.Remove the gear on the new CPS and install a Napa Echlin high quality gear.
4.Run only a ACEA rated high ZDDP oil IE Mobil One 5W-40
I've done this with mine and 3 other Jeepers who had wear issues with their CPS gears. 2 of them have already put 20K miles on their new CPS assembly and there isn't a trace of abnormal wear.
Everyone needs to stop waiting for Chrysler to come save them with a redesigned part because its not going to happen. Its easy and cheap to solve this problem and make your engine reliable again you just need to take a little initiative. All its gonna cost you is a new OPDA, a gear and a pack of zerks. Heck you can have a permanent long term fix for under $200 bucks.
It cracks me up how everyone here will do all kinds of mods to their Jeep but when it comes to something so simple just about everyone ether says they are going to wait on Chrysler and hold their breath or just keep replacing CPS units.
