    RAM 1500 Diesel General Discussion
    HVAC, are you sure your Ecodiesel didn't have a EGR coolant leak? Those are high engine temps even while towing. I used my Ecodiesel exclusively for towing and can tell you that temps over 230 are extreme unless you are towing 7.5K+ at 65 MPH on a 90+ degree day.

    The turbo lag is a very real issue, I experienced it myself several times. Beyond that, my turbo failed 3x times while at highway speeds or while merging onto an interstate. Very dangerous to say the least. I actually had a VERY close call with a Porsche while merging on to the interstate in SC...

    Okay, if this isn't in the right area, please move/delete. My 2016 Ram Ecodiesel is hopelessly broken and FCA is buying it back. But I am not ready to give up on diesel yet. I found a 2008 Grand Cherokee with the CRD diesel engine at a local dealership. Asking price is $6K and it has 131K...

    Does that affect the title? How would this affect an out-of-state buyer?

    Right but CA has emissions......so I am assuming that the truck DID have the AEM installed.....otherwise you wouldn't be able renew the registration.

    They eventually approved my buyback. Sure you can fix any truck with unlimited money.....but is it worth it for FCA?

    FCA/EPA 3.0L Diesel Settlement and AEM
    My Ecodiesel truck has been broken since May 15th; currently still in the shop for the 4th time. Maybe FCA will install GDE tune for me?!!!! (yes that is sarcasm.............while the GDE tune is GREAT, that requires a un-****ed truck to start with)

    FCA/EPA 3.0L Diesel Settlement and AEM
    If you owned the dealership......would you be buying AEM modified Ecodiesels, broken or otherwise? I sure as hell wouldn't be.

    SAME EXACT EXPERIENCE AS ME. LITERALLY WORD FOR WORD. EGR went, leaked coolant into intake manifold (vehicle ran rough as a result), turbo hose kept blowing off also. Now they are looking at the turbo and the ENTIRE exhaust system.
