This is a discussion on For those who almost get in an accident within the FCA/EPA 3.0L Diesel Settlement and AEM (Approved Emissions Modification) forums, part of the FCA/EPA 3.0L Diesel Settlement and AEM category; Originally Posted by 97hmcs I'm seeing some posts about almost getting hit when pulling into traffic or getting T-boned at intersections, or having difficulty merging ...

Ahhh the woe is me exaggerated world we live in, don't you just love it!
When I read something like that it immediately discredits anything else they have to say.
I only had one unexpected instance where the truck reacted completely different than I'm used to. I've put about 200 miles on it since, and the truck is acting the same as before the AEM.
97hmcs, I know you're only having fun but my limited experience with the AEM is horrible with a cold engine (summer cold, I can't imagine what it will be like in the winter). If one was an aggressive driver and started the truck from cold and pulled out into traffic it would feel like the truck almost stalls and would definitely cause some tire screeching from the approaching traffic.
I do believe that FCA is in violation of the terms of our agreement in that the vehicle performance and driving characteristics have been negatively impacted and as such expect another round of class action once many people have V08 applied.
"The AEM is not expected to change any of the key vehicle attributes, such as average fuel economy, reliability, durability, vehicle performance, drivability, engine noise or vibration, or other driving characteristics."

Bill, Hopefully FCA can get it fixed for you and the others with the same issue.
It is not our driving ability or technique, it is the AEM tune.

You want a lack of performance? Drive a truck powered by a 238 horsepower 2 stroke Detroit loaded to 78,000 pounds with a 7 speed trans and a 5% grade. It still figures to weight to horsepower. The transmission gets you the torque to move a load.

Just a followup on the less than stellar throttle response following the AEM "V08/V11 upgrade" on my 2016 ED. I received a call from a FCA Chrysler rep today about my (and many others too) systemic throttle response issue. She is following up with the dealer to schedule time for the service dept. to run diagnostics on the truck, I'm guessing to get a baseline or see where the problem lies. I'll keep you informed as to where this goes and whether it progresses to an acceptable end.
