I drove in and my delaer had me back in my car 20 minutes later. It didn't take long at all They can probably get yours done before you go.R/TOgilvie said:Just got my recall in the mail, F29 reprogram PCM, the DAY before I go across Canada!!! LOVELY!!!
Yeah, perhaps we're all going to have engine failure in the near future and then we do a class action for the rest of our lives attempting to recoup our losses. I'll never believe that engine-knock is good no matter how "light" it may be. As if a "light" tap on the head with a hammer is "normal"!quadrajet said:I mentioned this elsewhere, but I definitely think it's important to post it here for people who are watching this subject with concern, as I am...
I had the flash done and the spark knock is still there, especially more noticeable when it's hot out (the air is less dense). According to the dealer, DC is aware that the flash didn't fix the problem in all cases and they have a software update on the way to address the issue.
I was told this 2 and a half months ago. I called again yesterday and still no sign of the new update.
I believe Chrysler was aware that this was going to be a problem well in advance of the Caliber's release. Take a look at page 232 of your owner's manual ..."Light spark knock at low engine speeds is not harmful....However, continued heavy spark knock at high speeds can cause damage and immediate service is required."
To me that is like saying a gunshot wound that doesn't hit a vital organ can be ignored without treatment, but if you get hit in the chest or something - go to a doctor right away. I'm willing to bet that most people who are not auto-savvy are unaware of what spark knock even is or what it sounds like. I have never seen an owners manual for anything that even mentioned spark knock, let alone it being "not harmful".
