Damaged Lower Intake! Plastic Threads! Jeep Wrangler 3.6 Pentastar Pt 2 https://youtu.be/J9IyLh2QPgo
Today we have a Jeep Wrangler Sahara with the 3.6 Pentastar engine. The customer states engine oil is leaking and it is a large leak. Be placed the jeep in service mode and began the inspection. It was found that engine oil was leaking off of the valve covers, after lifting the jeep, we found more oil on the back side of the engine and on the transmission. The intake manifold was removed and then the lower intake manifold was removed. Engine oil was found pooling up in the valley between the cylinder heads. The oil cooler assembly was then removed and inspected for leak sources. The o rings were found to be deformed and leaking engine oil.

    Every time I watch a video of work on a Chrysler product, I thank dog I've never owned one.

    I have a 2011 dodge durango and I replaced my oil cooling housing in June of 23 and the new one went back out in August of 23 so I did go back with the all metal after market one

    You would think, erroneously, that a big rectangular open top engine bay would have plenty of empty space for working around the engine from all sides…I guess they look at it and think…what kind of big plastic box, wiring harness and tubes can I cram in that free space?

    welp he's got all the rust protection he'll ever need.

    If you can't see it, it don't need to be tite!! 🫣🤯

    Another great video Ray, unfortunately your editing skills are lacking on it. Keep up the good work buddy.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @midniteoyl8913 says:

    Thinking someone tried the old '1/4 turn of the valve cover bolts to stop the leak' trick. Which doesn't work in modern cars, obviously.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @willem8396 says:

    What a scrap car to work on! so much unnecessary work to achieve your goal.. I'm glad not to be an owner of this brand..

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @chiefjoseph8154 says:

    That engine is absolute trash. So many known issues yet they keep producing that junk.

    JD POWERS is a corrupt self-appointed marketing firm that will hand out awards to anyone that pays them. Whatever achievement they vote to award for, stay clear of that product cause you can know its complete garbage. JD Powers has 0 credibility.

    "Jeep Ducking" : The act of placing a rubber duck on someone's Jeep—called Jeep "ducking" and/or "Duck Duck Jeep"—began with one person, named Allison Parliament, from a small town in the Canadian province of Ontario. She unknowingly started a movement of kindness, fellowship, and recognition with that first rubber duck she placed on a Jeep.

    Allison's reason for perching a little yellow duck on a Jeep Wrangler just like hers that she saw in a parking lot was simply to bring herself a small sense of joy after a frightening verbal and physical encounter with someone earlier in the day. Two years later, that single gesture has morphed into the Jeep ducking craze that has swept throughout the Jeep enthusiast community in the United States as well as in nearly a dozen other countries around the world. What does it mean if you've been ducked?
    “I think it's essentially like giving someone a flower, to say I just appreciate what you got going on, and keep it moving,” said Ward. If you have one, it means you've been 'ducked. ' If you get one, the kind gesture means someone likes your Jeep, or just wants to put a smile on your face.

    Ray you were talking about hoping your customer didn’t make this repair and making fun of them. I kind of had the same thing happen. I am a mobile heavy equipment, tech, and I drive everywhere. Well in Atlanta traffic, I didn’t road rage, but I was discussed with someone driving near me. They cut me off. I was mad wanted to tell him how bad the driver they were. But I didn’t. Then I realized when I pulled into my first job, it was my customer. After that I am very careful who I externalize my anger towards. 😅

    I know a jeep guy that just chucks the ducks across the parking lot he finds on his vehicle.

    What a crappy inappropriate use of plastics in an engine.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @kimkeam2094 says:

    Ray, I know that Jeep is not your favourite, but in Australia mechanical support and knowledge how to do it is sadly lacking. If you buy a Jeep here you either buy 2 so whilst one is broken down and you are trying to figure out the faults, there is a spare vehicle to drive. Jeep dealers are the least knowledgeable mechanics and YouTube is the first advice you look for. Jeep Australia is the second worst company here for warranty claims so going to them for any support isn’t worth it. Please consider doing more on Jeeps to help us out. Thanks

    Just think Ray, If the engineers who designed this unit are thinking about all the cool tools you could buy to work on it

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @peterscuffle says:

    Once upon a time…open hood, an engine block, carburetor, exhaust thingies. Unbolt things, put in new things. Close hood. 289, slant six…..WTF HAPPENED !!! Intake air temp sensor !!!…..Glad all my tools got stolen 20 years ago, I'd just make trouble with them now. God bless the Rainman.

    Either I'm having a stroke, my Internet connection is spotty or Ray Fingled the editing.

    Why would anyone buy one of these? Terrible ride and a pain in the butt to work on!

    Sorry Ray, but your choice of transitions in this video does not work for me, it's like there is a sudden stop and start. Not up to the same standard f your previous transitions. Later transitions much smoother.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @aureliendesthieux2263 says:

    You're definitely the man that car need to live longer !

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @billmilosz says:

    It's a Jeep thing. Even the video editing is f'ed up.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @michaelhall9138 says:

    Isn’t a V6 in a Jeep a sacrilege? Shouldn’t it have an I6?

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @5e60 says:

    @RainmanRaysRepairs I noticed that you didn't mention one of the most common issues of the Pentastar engines, the rockers arm failure which causes a ticking noise and after a while it destroys the camshaft lobes. I hope this is one of those items that you check but don't bother to film.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @rhetorical1488 says:

    So a jeep is the Harley of the car world i guess

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @TairnKA says:

    I was expecting that bolt to be missing, versus being loose. 😉

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @gwcracker says:

    Thanks for the time saving edits! I like!

    Why do people buy, jeeps, They are piles of shit

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! @meganpaull6140 says:

    Don’t worry Ray it was still an awesome video despite the clicking. Love the jeep wow what a jigsaw puzzle blimey.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @rickallen9382 says:

    Now I know, never buy a jeep

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @excellentjb says:

    you make me leaving a comment.. good job ray… hammered Jeep Video version

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @stevenclaeys6252 says:

    Your editing with the clicking and weird video scene transformation SUCKS ! Stop it !!!

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @engelkep504 says:

    looks like the video cutting has been done different… the "cuts" have a slight pause and also pause in sound.., very annoying. 🙁

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @GrantWilliams66 says:

    JEEP 🚙 One question WHY???. Do people like your design and engineering folks ever think just a little down the road when your defective products need to be accessed. So all that money spent on one bolt.

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @dish8690 says:

    The video was not that bad People are such babys Stuff happens we just keep moving on, dont let them get to you . If its that easy to do vidoes maybe the haters can make there own videos . Its all good sir. Keep up the great content.
