So I am extremely new to the Jeep world, I have just purchased my first about a week or so ago. I have come from the VW world and still own a bagged GTI. But anyway, the other day I was driving came to a light stopped then attempted to accelerate. I stalled, no big deal right? Attempt to restart didn't start until third attempt, CEL and ETC came on with white smoke coming from the exhaust and the Jeep definitely went into limp mode. I had no power, but i putted along a block or so to remove myself from traffic. The Jeep cut out once I got it to a stop, let it sit for a a couple minutes and attempted to restart it... No luck.
Has anyone heard of this happening, the Jeep currently has 220 miles on it and I had it towed to my nearest dealer and is still sitting there waiting to hear back about what happened.
Disconnect the battery for a couple minutes to reset the comps? Just an idea. Maybe a code got thrown from being stalled consecutively and is putting the engine into limp mode

Computer issue wouldn't have it blowing either oil (blueish white) or white smoke from the tailpipe.
Didn't these engines have head issues in 2012?
Yeah, but nothing like this. That problem caused a lot of noise and an occasional misfire and was fixed over a year ago. This sounds like something catastrophic for a brand new engine. White smoke suggests coolant burning, which usually means a blown headgasket but I don't see why that would cause the engine to stall or fail to start (unless it's a computer decision).
I DEFINITELY want to hear the dealer's diagnosis. Wow.
