    New to the Forum and a newer ECO owner (Oct 17). Been following the tuning and aftermarket for the trucks since before they were released but seemed until recently the Tuning seemed fairly limited. Seems "generally" the ECM tunes are more reliable than the plug and play (generally no...
  7. CEL P203e w/ GDE Tune

    RAM 1500 Diesel Mechanical
    Today, my '14 ED with 85,000 miles threw the P203e "reductant level sensor circuit intermittent/erratic" code. I've done some reading and understand it's most likely related to a sensor in the DEF tank. I have an extended warranty, so I'm wondering if this is something I should look into having...

  13. EGR Cooler Leak and GDE Hot Tune

    RAM 1500 Diesel Mechanical
    I know there are alot of coolant leak threads on here but this question pertains to trucks with the GDE Hot Tune. My 2016 eco has had a very slow coolant leak since I bought it used with 24k miles 7 months ago(just now realizing this). It was low when I bought the truck so I had a dealer refill...
  14. More Frequent Regens with Colder Temps?

    RAM 1500 Diesel Maintenance
    Can anyone offer insight into this? I have the GDE tune and my truck ran two regens within 100 miles the other day. I'm in Iowa and it's been below 30 degrees for the week. If I don't get the truck up to operating temperature on every drive, will the colder temperatures cause a quick build-up of...

    I've had the GDE Tune for 10,000 miles. I installed the new ECU at about 45,000, and my truck just rolled over 55,000. Like nearly every other GDE tuned truck, I experienced all of the great benefits: turbo lag virtually gone, increased MPG, and the EGR shutoff. However, in the last few weeks...
