    But what I'm curious about is did any of these folks finally get their new engines, and how long did it actually take? A lot of the threads seem to die out without hearing about the resolutions. Or perhaps I just suck at finding this info.

    Do remember a few that checked back with happy endings on their major engine repairs or replacements. Most always there was a delay that seemed to be like a month or more.

    Bummer situation you are in. Just glad you are in warranty. If out, you would really be out as I see no re-built or crate motor solution now or on the horizon.

    Seem I've made it past that critical point. Tendency is if something is going to go wrong it is usually within the first few thousand miles unless you are extremely abusive to the vehicle.

    Knocking on wood here. 28,000 and still sounds quite.

    I have had TWO eco diesel engines blow. First was in June 2015 at 39,000 kilometers. Second last week at less than 20,000 kilometers. Very disturbing to see how many are out there with the same problem. FCC always wants to see oil service records. I have always done mine at Chrysler dealers and BEFORE the recommended time. Can never get a reason for what has happened. What type of recourse do we have with these defective engines?

    Maybe the issue is the dealers servicing these vehicle. Or the Canadian version of these trucks.

    There have been a few that got disgusted & traded out or had a buy back & walked away. It would be helpful to find a way to catalog the member & the outcome...Mods, any ideas?

    9) BBJ - 2014 - 13,000 miles - didn't blow up, Chrysler wants the dealer to pull the pan and investigate

    Blown Motor :-) The best I can give your for a build date is that I got an email from Chrysler on 4/4/2014 That the build was complete and the truck was being shipped. I have 28000 - 29000 miles. Mine blew 11/5/15 It has been to the dealer literally 10 times, 8 CEL, 1 time wouldn't start, 1 time blown motor.
