Hi all.
Have 2015 Jeep GC overheated, replaced thermostat. Took for test drive overheated, but when I went around a corner or braked fairly quickly temp dropped almost immediately for a little while. Took breather off lots of steam no water, but no loss of coolant except from overflow tank. Any thoughts? Could this be an air lock issue?

What is the correct max bracked towing capacity of the 3.6 petrol grand cherokee.

Chris H.
Chris H. · WK Limited Petrol (2010-2024)

Max braked towing capacity, some dealers say 1600kg, others 2200kg. Which is correct. Chris

I unfortunately let all the brake fluid out of my 2012 WK. On bleeding it I had poor pedal and brakes, was told to take it to agent as they had the software to bleed ABS system. Paid for the work but was informed that the master cyl needed to be replaced as the brakes were still the same. Fitted with a 2nd hand one and still no rear brakes,
Any ideas

when towing a caravan what mode do you use and what about the Crouse Control can you use it am in Australia


Hi Norman T I have a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee LTD diesel with 8 speed g/box, and tow a 3tonne + van and when on open road use my cruise control and travel at 90km/hr and find both car and van travel very well and have also levellers fitted.
I travel at this speed so that if traffic wish to pass, they do not require excessive speed to pass my long car and van. The cars transmission automatically selects the appropriate gear on the fly, 8-7- etc when on level roads or up and down small undulations with me being able to assess if I am comfortable with that current situation at that time. Obviously, if there were strong crosswinds etc, I would not use cruise if car and van were being adversely affected. This works for me and I do not get as mentally tired. Van and car are fitted also with stability control. Hope this assessment helps.
PS: The Jeep will change down in cruise to assist braking effect within reason to hold the set speed(within reason)

Hi have a 2011 jeep grand cherokee 3lt v6 diesel. I've replaced the front crank case oil seal 3 times and it keeps leaking oil. The timing ring gear has about 5mm sliding back and forth play on it so can oil pass between the timing ring gear and the crank.

How do I view the oil temperature in a 2021 grand cherokee night eagle?

Dave · WK Overland (2010-2024)

Hi l have Jeep Grand Cherokee wk overland 2018 l am having trouble towing a caravan it’s jayco sterling caravan roughy 2800 kg 21 ft long. I can’t stopping it from swaying side. I had a srt Jeep had no troubles traded that in to buy the overland thinking it would be better. Has anyone got any information to make it better thanks Dave


Nothing to do with the car. Check how the caravan's weight is distributed.


Yes l am looking into that as well. but l towed the same caravan with Jeep Grand Cherokee srt model 2014 and l had no trouble with the sway

Weight distribution.
Bring luggage weight in caravan forward.
You want ~10% trailer weight on the towball (so about 280kg in your situation)
Also, the Overland has a higher towball height. Check you drawbar angle, you may need to adjust the trailer hitch, trailer wheel alignment, or fit a weight distribution hitch to prevent sway.

2015 3.0 litre Diesel Engine, Engine oil has recently started getting hot. Normally ran at 88 degrees, but now goes into the 100's before i pull it up. Ambient temp is only 25 degrees. Only 110k on the clock. Any thoughts

Thermostat failure can cause higher oil temperatures.
Oil temperature is safe well into the 120 degree range. Don't be too concerned. Monitor coolant for oil as engine oil cooler failure can also occur.

Looking at may be buying a 2015 Grand Cherokee petrol what is your thoughts on towing a caravan with this


If u want power than srt models(v8 engine) would be good.


3.5 tonne is recommended for v6 I think.

The rear shock absorbers on my 2017 Overland are leaking and need replacing. The car has travelled 59,000km on sealed roads, no towing, no off road. Seems to be a manufacturers fault in my view. I’ve never had to replace shock absorbers so early in any car I’ve owned. Is anyone else having this problem? I’ve written to FCA and waiting for a response. I’m not happy about replacing the shocks at my expense.

Gear changers from 1 st to2 when cold are shocking up and down dosent stay in first jumps from 1st to2 then back to first new car 1 year old dec

I'm currently purchasing a Grand Cherokee Night Eagle and trading in my 2014 Blackhawk - needless to say I've been very happy with the Blackhawk. The new models have no CD Player - any suggestions for where to buy one to be mounted in the centre console as per my blackhawk


Hi Tony, No sorry I am not sure on this. Congratulations on your purchase!
