Hey guys, I had the same issue. Always service my Jeep regularly at a dealership and never tracked it or abused. It was originally bought 03/23/2015. Few months after covid lockdowns I started driving my Jeep srt randomly started ticking and shut down as I was driving just 5 months after my powertrain has expired. Very frustrated because it now needs a new motor (metal shavings in the oil . I recently called fca and waiting for a response see if they will do a good will on the repair. Do you guys have any advice on this ?
Do you have a contact number for FCA?
An International recall*Dear Jeep Cares,
If in fact you truly did "care", you would do what is right. Acknowledge theres a problem and put out a national recall, and for all who have paid to have this fixed in the past only to have the repair done again shortly after, these owners need full compensation as well. I bought my Jeep used as a certified pre owned from a Jeep dealer who was very open about a lifter replacement under warranty. That was 2.5 years ago, and 14k miles. The top end of my Jeep is off again fixing this problem, and I'm pretty sure its a replacement engine with an April '16 build date. This vehicles ENTIRE SERVICE HISTORY is in mopars' data base. I am the 2nd owner.
Please Jeep Cares, show us you care. Don't be a group of cowards, and do whats right.
There is no such thing as a specific Hellcat lifter.Same lifter been used since 2016 in all hemi motors.Remember lifter failure is normally related to ks travelled.The hell cat lifters as of yet have had no failures that I have read anywhere and I did a mds delete replaced all my lifters for the hell cat lifters you can see the needle bearings in the hell cat lifter are much larger than the standard mds lifters
Go to Australian Hemi lifter failure Facebook page and register.No such thing as Hellcat lifers.An International recall*
Australian here and can confirm our Jeeps are plagued by the same issue over here.
Anybody know if the hellcat lifters have the same issue? Or if it’s worth swapping them out for peace of mind.
The stutter you are feeling are you sure that isn't the MDS?I have a 2014 (Manufactured 6/13) with 75k miles and have a lifter tick on cold starts. I don’t drive it hard day to day but taken it to two track days in its life.
I’ve noticed the engine stutter sometimes on low rpm, is the stutter possibly a cylinder misfire? Would you guys recommend I get my lifters changed as a precaution?
I love my SRT but I don’t know much about how the motor works so any advice is appreciated.
These so called Hellcat lifters with that part number have been used in all hemi motors since around 2016.Failures still happening.
These lifters with the same part number have been used in all hemi motors since around 2016.There is no specific Hellcat lifter,as some engine rebuilders would have you believe.
