    I do not have a FCA extended warranty. fuel filter only has about 3 k miles on it.

    I also wanted to report that my MPG took about 3 mpg hit after the check engine light came on. Perhaps this is due to a bad injector. I don't know, but it is something I noticed this morning and throughout the day.

    My check engine light is still on.

    I suppose I will find time to take it in to the dealer sometime this week.

    Strange thread as the OP never got back to finalize the results after his return of the code. Taken on new life.

    Will sheepdog come back? Stay tuned.

    Just a note that I had a friend clear the code yesterday evening. He has a device (code reader) from Snap On Tools. I want to see if it comes back without loosing a day at my servicing dealer.

    The interesting thing to me, is immediately, I got back about 1 1/2 mpg from the 3 mpg loss.

    2015 Ram Ecodiesel
    Well seems like my ecodiesel seems to be a lemon, or my local dealership does not know what they are doing! It's been to the shop twice for the P026C code, first attempt they replaced the injector pump and some fuel lines. Lasted 80 miles then popped the code again. Second attempt they spent 2.5 weeks fooling with it to finally said it was the fuel filter. I had just put a new OEM fuel filter on it 500 miles before the first code popped. Went back in for a fuel leak because they failed to tighten a line properly and it was sealing diesel. Lasted about 1.5 months, no issues.Two Thursdays ago was making a small 130 mile trip to a zoo and my oil cooler blew, mind that I only have 33k mikes on this truck! Got it towed, 1 week later got my truck back. Drove it 35 miles and got a check throttle control warning and went into limp mode! WTF! Reset to see if it would come back. Cleared and did not come back. Drove truck up to PA for Memorial Day weekend , and this morning it popped the P026C code again. I'm about to drive it over the Fing cliff!

    It may not be a big diesel, but it's a smart diesel!

    Sorry to read your woes Chuck. Hopefully we can find someone who knows how to really fix it. Did you drop some MPG on the display as well?

    As of yesterday morning, my trucks CEL is back on. The same P026C.

    How did they fix your oil cooler issue? They should have replaced your engine if oil was inside your coolant system. Others have had a new engine installed and that would take longer then a week repair in my opinion...

    A update.

    Over the last month I have been too busy to get into the servicing dealer about the CEL and the code. It has been on for a little over a month now. Today, I was in a hurry and got a stretch of highway and really drove my truck much more aggressively than I normally do. By that I mean I pushed the pedal to the metal several times and kept it there for a brief period. At some point in that drive my CEL went away.

    Just saying.

    In any case, I hope to get it in the dealer at some point in July to have them look at the injectors.

    That was the code I had and they sent the injectors out for testing and they failed. They replaced all 6 injectors under warranty.

    Another Update. So my CEL keeps coming on for the same P026C code. But, I can clear it for a few days just by doing a hard acceleration for a few seconds once my truck is up to temp. It goes off on its own, where it stays in that state for a few days and then comes back on.

    Still trying to get to my servicing dealer some time over the next few weeks. I need my truck for work and dread not having it for a few days. If I remember correctly, I have 68,000 miles on it.
