  1. WK Grand Cherokee & XK Commander Forum
    2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.0 Diesel. A while back my alternator went out so I bought one off rockauto.com and replaced it. The only thing that really went wrong is I broke the little plastic clip that holds the plug into place on the back of the alternator. But the connector seems to be fine and...

    Recently purchased my 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.0 CRD Diesel with only 150,000km on it. Everything seemed fine until I got the dreaded lightening bolt warning indicating an issues with the Electronic Throttle Control (ETC). So far that was the only issue was the ETC warning light would come on...

  6. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I'm swaping a VW TDI engine into my TJ and I'm wondering what others have done in general about possible check engine lights. I'd like to avoid simply taking the bulb out if it makes sense. I'm going to be sending the Jeep ECU a converted crank trigger signal for the tach. At the very least...

    I purchased 5w-30 oil from Advanced Auto Parts online that was an "Exact-Fit" for my Overland CRD. The oil is in and it seemingly runs fine, if not better than before the oil change. I need to know if this is the wrong oil, because I cannot find the MB 229.51 rating on it, nor do I know what...

    Hello Everyone, about 2 months ago my 2008 CRD wouldn't start after stopping to fill up tank. Dash lights on but no crank at all... I removed the key and tried starting again successfully but very strong electric smell started permeating from the air vents for a while. This morning, same thing...

    This is urgent. We are in the process of buying a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 3.0 CRD with only 108,088 miles on it that is now leaking a consistent but fairly large amount of diesel on the ground. This is after we purchased the vehicle but before we were able to leave. The owner took it...

    Hi guys! First off I want to say thanks for all the useful information I found on this forum! I'm making this post in hopes to save someone else some headache if they encounter a similar problem. (Cole's notes at the end) This issue started about 6 weeks ago where my 2008 WK Grand Cherokee CRD...
  11. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    Hey Guys, a long time lurker here.

    I own a 2008 Jeep WK with the CRD (OM642) engine at over 320k km. I recently had a shop replace my camshaft sensor with a new one that I had purchased from a Mercedes dealership; the engine was throwing the P0341 Code indicating either a circuit or cam sensor fault. When I drove home the...

    Hello all, I'm looking for diesel CRD-specific wiring diagrams. I already have pdf of 7000+ page FSM but it doesn't show much regarding the CRD. I also have the diesel supplement (called Chapter 9) but that only covers engine mechanicals of the diesel. I searched this site and lots of dead ends...

    What has everyone been getting for reliable life expectancy on their 3.0 CRD's. My '07 CRD has 145,000 miles (mostly highway) on it but a recent job change has me putting 1,200 miles a WEEK on it (pretty much all highway running around Nebraska). Body and interior are in great shape, engine...

    Just purchased a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 3.0 diesel, limited edition. The door sticker states 6150lbs gvwr. How do I know if I have a tow package? I do not have the cutout in the bumper, and the previous owner installed a hitch (it sits under the bumper). What is included in a tow package...
  17. Jeep CJ Forum
    I am finishing up my CJ5 project for my son and cleaning up the engine bay. My Anti-Diesel Solenoid is broken off the mount and completely rusted. Can I just remove it and cap the wires. Pretty sure it's the factory solenoid from 1978 so probably not operational anyway and the Jeep has never had...
