If you are truly concerned; take it to the dealership. Have them diagnose it and keep the documentation.


If it isn’t in writing, it didn’t happen.


This way, if the engine or transmission fail after your warranty is up, you have proof that you tried to rectify a problem before it became an issue while it was under warranty.

I mean, will they guarantee it if it did ? Or am j just paying a diagnostic fee for nothing again. My dealership is absolutely terrible.

In a perfect world, that's what I would like to happen.
Getting the Dealer to Document (and give you a copy) is your only safe bet. (pay - cheap insurance)

BUT in the real world, Dealers want to make money!
If FCA tell the Dealer to say "That's normal" to most Customer complaints, then Dealers will follow that line.
Failure to do so will result in Dealers money being spent!

What did you do ROXakin?
Run out of oil?
Cook the engine?

Use racing fuel?
Bottom out on boulders?
Jump a canyon?


Are you allowed to name the Dealer?
Some members may also use that Dealer.

There are no guarantees. BUT, if something were to happen andyou tell the dealership: “I did try to get it taken care of and you told me itwas normal”… and you pull out a piece of paper as your proof of doing so.

One of two things are going to happen:

1. Their attitude is going to changeand you might get a “one time customer satisfaction warranty repair”. And you win.

2. The dealer is going to tell you that you are out of luck.

~ Now you take your piece of paperand you take it to higher level (FCA direct).

~ If it get real ugly and you haveyou take legal action, you have a piece of paper.

The point is; that piece of paper is proof that you tried. Beanin your pocket, so to speak. Again, it is in writing, so it happened.

Very true, dealers want to make money. Warranty repairs onlypay a percentage of what the dealer would charge a customer for the samerepair. So, the dealer wants it (whatever the issue is) to be the customersfault.


As @L A D A said “(pay - cheap insurance)”.

The noise in particular is clearer in the parked situation. Me driving forward then reverse (the clunk is me switching gears)
I hear nothing that sounds like your description in the videos. There sounds like a very little bit of multi-air valve chatter in the first video. The second the only non normal noise I hear is some plastic thing contacting some other plastic thing.

Is the multi air valve chatter normal?
And the other sound perhaps ( its just a low tapping sound it seems, barely noticeable)

Also no no offroading as of yet, and ran real low but never dried the engine out.

When it comes down to the dealer, by the time you go through legal and all that might as well use the money towards a new car at that rate.

Fact: You ran the engine low on oil. Running it low on oil surely shortened the life of the engine. You refilled it and you are driving it now. The video you posted sounds normal to me.



My suggestion: Drive it! Be happy with what you have, and drive it. You keep going on and on every day about this. Just drive the damn thing. It's probably going to be fine, but of it's gonna blow, it's gonna blow. It is what it is.



If you're that scared of it, then sell it! Trade it in. But my suggestion is just drive the damn thing.

The multi-air system sounds a lot like a diesel. Or maybe an air cooled beetle.

I thought about this some more, and I'd also check your oil fairly regularly. If you had a leak big enough to run low, you may be still be losing oil. The multi-air system is oil operated. Low oil can cause oil frothing, and since the multi-air setup is using the oil as a hydraulic wedge having compressible air in it is less than desirable. It is also possible you are only seeing "low" oil conditions temporarily when parked on roads with a high crown if the oil is a little low and all shifted to one side of the pan and starving the sump somewhat on startup. That's jsut a theory. no idea which side the sump is on in the 2.4, and I know it is a two stage pump, but not where stage 2 is picking up oil from.
