    For what itís worth, I have experienced the same thing with my 18 JLUR. Itís a uniquely high idle for what seems longer than a traditional warm up cycle before the rpm kicks down to normal idle speed. I think itís a programmed idle duration to get the engine up to operating temps faster. Not an expert or anything, just a fellow 2.0T owner with an opinion.

    Donít know the Jeep 4 cylinder, but my guess is itís running high idle to heat up the cat faster for emissions efficiency.

    Bingo and bingo. I did some research at the dealer I work at today and it's designed to warm the engine for ideal combustion and exhaust sufficiently so fuel efficiency and exhaust fumes numbers are the same from first start to after a long drive

    I'm going to stop bitching about the sound of the motor because it's beginning to get old. The motor is a preppy little engine that is fun to drive.

    1500 rpm until it reaches 190+ temp doesnít sound right to me. Itís normal for initial start up to light off the Cat converter for emissions but for 10-15 mins till it reaches that temp isnít right. It doesnít sound like itís going into its ďclosed loopĒ which makes me think a sensor isnít reading right.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
