 Description of the problemThis vehicle has recurring starting issues. At any time, cold or warm engine the ignition would engage and the engine fails to start. Service dealership has not identified any specific reason why this occurs. On january 8th, the same starting issue occurred and this time the engine light appeared. The service dealership has identified a bad cylinder head. There recommended repairs are replacement of the cylinder head and associated components. Service dealership stated the starting issue is not related to the cylinder head. They stated they would replace the fuel pump in an effort to resolve the starting issue. In discussions with jeep customer service they stated the cylinder head issue is related to nhtsa campaign number: 11v487000. Upon reviewing this campaign it states the ? Engine requires replacement?. I am not satisfied with a cylinder repair and a probable fix of the starting issue were the vehicle mileage is only 29k. I agree with nhtsa campaign requiring replacement of the engine.
