Hi guys, I have 2 questions for you experts. Firstly, i would like to apologize in advance for possible mistranslations, as i am not such a car expert, and some terms from my language translate literally.
It is all about 2007 Compass Rallye Sport, 2.0 CRD, 6 speed manual
As I`m from Europe, i will use my units, and here are ratios for the ones who are not familiar with metric system and euros:
1 mile = 1,609 km => 1 km = 0,621 miles
1 € = 1,31 $ => 1 $ = 0,76 €
1) Several days back, i have started experiencing ignition problems. I put key in a "hole", turn it until lamps in gauge clusters light , car emits several beaps for unfasten seat belt and activated hand brake, radio starts, ventilation also, and then car starts turning off lamps (only few stay activated). As you can see, everything seems pretty usual. But, when i try to ignite, there is no "babble" sound of ingition, nothing hears. Or maybe, tiny, deeply located, short click, but not so sure about it. I usually try several times, sometimes maybe for 3-4 minutes, until i start the engine. On the other hand, sometimes, car starts after first attempt. After pulling off, driving is usual, but today i experienced stopping the engine surprisingly, when i stopped at traffic light. I am visiting my dealer on Monday, and not expecting you to solve this, but i want to know general directions for finding what is causing this problem.
2) This thing bothers me much more then the first one. I bought this car with 95 000 km on it a year ago. Now, I`m 110 000 km with it. As my user manual, and also the dealer, suggest i should schedule "regular service" (in my country we usually use term "small service") to every 15 000 km. "Regular service" includes changing filters (air, fuel, air conditioning,...), changing engine oil, diagnosing for other problems, and, i think that is all. Correct me, if you know that this service includes something else. My dealer charges me this service 250€, and that is a thing that i can live with. But, at milestone of 100 000 km, user manual suggests doing "big service". I contacted the dealer to inform me what this service includes, as it sometimes differ from car to car. He says that this service includes:
+ changing 2 belts
(one is serpentine belt and i don`t know about another one, but he says that one goes with another, one cnannot be changed without another) + additional oil change
(oil for reductor,..., he hasn`t named exactly all parts which oil should be changed, i only managed to remember reductor, but i don`t know if compass had a reductor). And all this will cost me around 700 € (around 900 $). That is really too much for me, and i want to try to avoid official dealer. My idea is to dig information from you guys
about which checks and repairs should be done at this milestone. If anyone knows, what this "big service" includes and can name it, step by step. Also, i will appreciate if you can name exact names and producers of these additional oils and belts, and give me several alternatives
, as I will try to buy it somewhere else, and give them to local "unofficial" Jeep servicer, who will charge me installations less than official one. It is hard to buy reserve Jeep parts in my contry apart from official dealer, because there are not too many Jeeps on the streets, but I`ll try my best, beacuse, it is hard to handle all these cost.
Sorry for this long post, and thank you in advance.
