    Got me thinking with all these post if it's time to trade her in or am I over reacting?
    Depends. See what the dealer says. Hopefully you still have a warranty. You don't have that many miles on it.

    After talking to GDE numerous times they said that their tune would take care of virtually all of these nuisance codes. They were correct. Been driving mine now for nearly 9 months with no issues after installing GDE.

    Dealer said it was the EGR and it's under warranty. Theyre fixing it at no charge. Hopefully that takes care of the problem. I wonder if this has anything to do with lawsuit against FCA emissions?

    ETC check engine light repairs. Egr cooler leaking coolant internally & into intake manifold. Warranty covered replacing cooler egr valve, intake manifold, fuel supply tube kit. My truck was down for 5 days. Picked it up and the next day check engine light on again. Scheduled to go back in next week, round two. I have 47000 easy miles, I don't tow, I drive between 70-75 in shorr this is my baby. I'll keep you guys posted.

    The responses here are a touch scary. It appears some of the dealer techs have the training of a lab rat and nearly zero skill at diagnosing a real problem.

    By the way, don't baby that truck too much. Spool that turbo once and a while. It will also help to get some type of monitor so you know when it is in REGEN mode and can choose to run it out.

    Personally, I'm waiting on the snow to melt so I can put my trailer behind mine and climb the biggest hill I can find.

    Update, 2nd time in for service because of the check engine light. They advised it was a speed switch and replaced it cost me $325. As I'm driving home the check engine light came on again. Took it back the next day and they advised its a diesel sensor harness and its on order, smh. Cant wait till they fix that so the check engine light comes on again with another problem 🤔

Dealership said it was going to be a $4800.00 fix. Contacted Dodge to see if they could do anything of coarse the answer was "NO". Even though the soot must have been building up before the light came on. I would like to know how many people this has happened to. This should be a recall cause it is a safety concern if your vehicle fails to accelerate in an intersection this could become a deadly situation.

    If you have gotten the "Service Electronic Throttle Control" or are starting to lose power while driving please comment
    I've got the same problem and engine light at 75000 km. Engine went into default mode and wouldn't Rev above 2500 RPMs. I have removed and cleaned the MAP sensor and deleted engine fault and everything was fine again.

    Give it a week or less. The light will come back on. I removed and cleaned mine. Lasted a day or two. Did it again. Same story. Purchased a new MAP sensor. Drove about 6 miles and light reappeared.
    What was the eventual fix you might ask? $9000 in parts and eventually a GDE tune to make it work.

    Then my battery died. Since I've put the new battery in, it stopped. So my conclusion is that the circuit was somehow affected by my battery going through its throes of dying over a long period of time. These days one must have lots of electricity to support all of the electronics in their vehicles.
    It's the battree I tell ya!

    So far it worked. It's been 5 months now and around 8000km (5000mi). Also cleaned EGR tube last month for the first time. It was dirty and messy.
