Mine had the filter housing replaced under warranty.
I have heard that the problem is air is sucked into the filter via the plug assemblies.
If the dealer pulled them when they changed the filter that could have caused your problem.
As to the F37-I put a vacuum T on the turbo control unit. This allows a little more boost off the line and I don't have power issues. In fact, if I get on the throttle at the lockup points I can cause the TC clutch to chatter.

After wearing out two (2) sets of Goodyear Wrangler ST tires (factory equipment) I recently purchased Cooper Discovery ATR tires. They definitely get a much better bite off road and in the snow and I am very happy with them on the street too. I don't expect to get the miles of wear that the STs gave me, but I like the extra traction.

Can anyone recommend an oil filter other than the increasing difficult to find OEM Jeep filter #5003558AA ? Are there specific manufactures who standards are equal to or above Jeeps?

I chose the MANN-FILTER p/n W 719/14.
I changed it every 15,000 miles and have over 100,000 miles on the truck. The engine runs like new and cold starts are still very easy with the original glow plugs...
I use 5W-40 synthetic oil and my replacement battery is better than the RedTop Optima for cold starts.
Merry Xmas to all

I bought a Honda CRV. CRD was OK but lately too much maintenance cost.

Purolator make two I know of the standard one and a PureOne model. Mobil 1 also has an oil filter as well as K&N. Amsoil carries a few namely Ea and WIX. The Ea is high grade filter for about $13.00 (preferred customer price).

Maintenance on the CRD is really no different than any other four wheel drive vehicle. Is the Honda two wheel or four wheel drive? If it is the latter, then you will encounter comparable maintenance costs and issues.
I do almost all of the maintenance on my CRD. It is actually pretty easy (for a near sixty year old) and you only need a few basic tools and a little time.

I had bought a case of OEM filters from Jeep about two years ago and have used the last one. I changed my oil about every 5-6,000 miles and have had virtually no engine problems. I now have about 70K miles on it. I was a little concerned when I bought a Fram TG8316 and compared it's size (capacity) to the OEM filter. It seems considerably smaller so I picked up a Purolator Pureone PL25230 ($9.00) which cross references with Jeeps recommended 5003558AA and it more closely matches up size wise.
I bought my CRD new in 2005 and have been very happy with it. Minor complaints are crappy original tires and I've had some rear brake issues. Still, the vehicle has been great! I have 3 different friend who want first shot at it when the time comes to unload it. I only wish Jeep had continued making the CRD.
