Jeep Renegade Muffler Gently Weeps
This bulletin applies to 2019-2020 Jeep Renegade vehicles. The customer may describe a crank-no-start condition in freezing temperatures.
This condition can be caused by condensation freezing in the muffler. Inspect the muffler for presence of a weep hole at the lower bottom corner.
If a hole is found, proceed with normal diagnostics. If no weep hole is found, drill a weep hole using a 1/8-inch drill bit. Do not drill deeper than 1-inch at the bottom lower corner.
