Noise

Anyone drive their compass in wet/slushy conditions and experience a loss of power and almost a exhaust leak noise for a few minutes after hitting a large puddle or slush? My 2017.5 Trailhawk has less than 3k on it and that is my biggest concern/ gripe

Sounds like to me its the traction control kicking in. Thats exactly what it does kills the power to the wheels.

No this has nothing to do with traction control. It has nothing to do with slipping Wheels this is a literally I come through a portal and all the sudden it sounds like I have an exhaust leak Iím worried that I have a crack in the manifold already or something

Hello Loner5777,
This list not what we hope to hear from our Compass owners. We understand you are reaching out to other forum members for advice. However, if you do choose to visit the dealer to have this looked into further, please send us a private message. We would be more than happy to offer an additional layer of assistance.

The problem with the sound is itís very specific to hitting the combo of cold/wet weather and it only lasts for a few minutes

As a matter of fact it happened this morning, on the way into work because itís snowing and the roads were slushy from the plow trucks. Itís not brakes/ traction control because 1: Iím not braking or making any kind of maneuver itís straightforward regular driving. 2: the loss power and noise honestly sounds like a serious exhaust leak and the loss of back pressure

A cracked manifold will only change sound with the manifold temperature they tend to be loader as the manifold heats up it would have nothing to do driving through a slushy puddle. I have yet to seriously kick in the traction control on our Jeep but I have in other vehicles and gotten a similar sound/action as you are describing.

You don't have to be braking or maneuvering anyway special for traction control to engage it will do so if wheel slippage occurs and the system is so seamless the driver may not even feel it depending on the amount of tire slippage. Hitting a slushy puddle or even just a water filled puddle of any size the contact patch of that tire will easily fit into will cause that tire to slip if it is powered. There is no grip to be found hydroplaning on the surface of water deeper than the tires tread. The engine will cut power but I'm unsure how Jeep is doing this. It could be simple throttle override or they may adjust ignition timing to cut engine power. If the system if using ignition timing that most likely is the sound you are hearing that sounds like a manifold leak.

If you are worried about it I would take your Jeep in and just have the service department look it over real well on the rack make sure there is nothing obvious they see wrong.
