2011 5.7 smoking engine

Is anyone having a smoking 5.7 in the 2011 Grand Cherokee? We are on our 2nd one and I was just wondering if anyone else has one that smokes. Factory is "working on a cure", Hurry up and wait. It is most noticeable on slight incline (our driveway). Please let me know. Thanks

Re: 2011 5.7 smoking engine

I have the same problem. It has done it twice on an inclined driveway and I have 700 miles on it. Dealer told me it was burning off the new coatings but I'm not buying it. It doesn't do it when I'm driving...just when I start it. I've owned two hemi's previously without this problem. Not sure what it is. What did the they say about the fix they are working on?

Mine has been known to do that. Smoke from the pipes on start up. Has since stopped more or less. 10k miles.

Re: 2011 5.7 smoking engine

My Hemi did/is doing that, especially when started on our inclined driveway (I checked the oil right away when I first saw the smoke - level was full). Talked to dealer service department, they said this is normal, especially with the 5.7 Hemi. Have 1300 miles on it now, and the smoke has almost stopped.

Re: 2011 5.7 smoking engine

The fact that these engines are put out and are smoking is my concern. The amount of smoke is a lot more than I would like to see from a 40K+ Jeep. The factory said ours was the only one in the county smoking! That was our first 2011, our second one also smokes and not just at start up. Thanks for the replies.

Re: 2011 5.7 smoking engine

Is it cold outside or any high humidity? Do you park it outside at night? It might be burning off condensation from sitting outside.

I have had cars before do this all the time. My 5.9 Limited always did this and it was just chalked up to being a hot running engine and if it was cool outside it would smoke.

That was what I was thinking.

Re: 2011 5.7 smoking engine

for me it was like a decent puff of gray smoke. didn't really concern me, but it was a good amount. the kind that lingers around for a minute or two

*edit: it was NOT blue/gray... just so nobody freaks out about oil leaks etc. didn't smell like that either.
