I have watched a few videos of crd jeeps doing cambelts etc but none of the engines look the same with the oil filter at the top, this engine is called a dohc but looking at the belt cover it does not seem to be shaped like 2 cams are in there!! is there any info on this diesel engine in the 08 nitro like pics etc as google shows hardly anything and nobody has posted videos etc of it that I can see
what other vehicles used this engine, the jeep videos are of crd 2.8 but the thermostat is where my oil filter is and the cam cover is much wider so looks very different! there does not seem to be a manual on this lump, can anyone point me in the direction!!
thanks guys

The 07 Nitro official service manuals have all the CRD info in them.
Check E-bay, that is where I got my hard copies.
The E-bay CDs don't have much, if any, CRD info in them.

sounds like alot, you could easy save £200 doing a few jobs on your Nitro with the info it contains, the Dodge Dealer wants £100 just to take a look at a problem ???.

Buy key from E-bay, take it to a lock smith, they should be able to cut the key, and program it into your computer. Just make sure the key you buy is the correct frequency.
Export Nitros use different frequency then US versions.

I dont want a remote locking key I just want a key to start and drive the truck with and ock in the door, I have to keep my key in my shoe so the smaller the better but it will have to be a transponder key to allow the engine to start, I'd also like just a plain key for doing the fuel cap which i find very awkward having to unlock every time! here is a pic of me working on another truck i had as i know you love pics!

I am not aware of any keys for the Nitro which do not have the buttons on them. As you know a standard key cut to fit won't work to run the Nitro. However, a push button start add-on my do the trick for you.
Another option would be to get a standard fob key and remove the switch contacts on the inside of the fob to prevent accidental unlocking, locking, and panic alarm.

uknitroman. I either get my parts from either jeepchrysler London, they're on ebay. I phone them though. Or my local Fiat/Chrysler dealer. The dealer can supply a key cut, programmed, and fob working for a ridiculous £300+. I'm waiting for a local locksmith to get back to me. Most places will cut and programme the chip for about 50 quid. The engine is the same as a KK Cherokee/Liberty.

They can cut but not programme chip, which is what you want to start it unfortunately.
