But this thread seems to indicate that it will work on mine as long as I use the 2014+ oil filters. Is that correct?

    Thanks,

    When I replaced the cooler on my 2012 I used the newer housing and haven’t had any problems with it. You just have to remember to use the newer filters when you do an oil change.

    Thanks NecessaryEvil for a great write up! Just finished mine, went well! The latest cooler has a different bolt pattern than the All Data page but other than that it was pretty easy. Thanks again for the time you put in this!

    THANKS (and a few Q's)

    First, THANK YOU!!! Been a stalker here for a while, and this write up has paid off.

    A few questions to OP or anyone else that has done this repair:
    - What is broken on this that is causing the leak? Are the new/replacement parts (68105583AF, if I am correct) any better or will I expect them to fail too?
    - Is MOPAR 68105583AF the latest/best replacement?
    - How long did it take from start to finish (minus photos, for OP)?

    Again, thank you and thanks in advance for any replies!

    Thanks. I have a 2015. Is there a difference between the part you posted from Amazon (# 68105583Ae) and #68105583AF?

    Also, shouldn't this be covered under the 5 year/100k mile powertrain warranty?

    AE to AF is just a minor revision of the part. Many online sites don't update when MOPAR does so don't be surprised if you get the AF even though it says AE.

    I had mine replaced under warranty about 8 months ago. It was still covered under the power train warranty and didn’t pay a penny. I got lucky I think now seeing dealerships won’t pay for it.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
