Well that really sucks.Now I know 100% for sure that it is a bottom end failure. I am beside the road waiting for a tow truck with an EcoDiesel engine that is seized up. It started making a very loud noise and started vibrating a lot and the oil pressure drop to zero. It won't even start now
If you used after market filters not OEM they might try to use that as an out, they could make a good argument for denying warranty because you did the servicing yourself but why jump to conclusions ? they may honor the warranty no question.My only concern is now to see if the dealer will put up a fight because I've been doing my own oil changes. I have 75,000 km on it so I should be covered under warranty
How would your engine be knocking the dealer be unable to find anything? lolKeep us posted on your results. Mine is about to go back to the shop since it’s starting to knock louder and starting to feel vibration. I’m at 74K miles, 1st motor was replaced at 10K miles. I bought the extended warranty after the 1st motor was replaced. Took it in last month and they said they couldn’t find anything. Had them do an oil change to cover myself. Good luck to you! Hope they take care of your truck.
I guess they just didn’t want to do the repairs. It was pretty mild before, well now it’s much louder and definitely noticeable the last mile home. Not driving it now, waiting for a day off to take it in again, hope it makes it there to the dealer.How would your engine be knocking the dealer be unable to find anything? lol
You could always drive it until it blows and have it towed there, that will surely get you another replacement.I guess they just didn’t want to do the repairs.

That is exactly what I did. If you read my comments I went to a dealer and they acknowledge the knock but did not have time to further diagnose. The mechanic told me to drive and that I was under warranty and come back in two weeks to have it diagnosed further. It did not even last the two weeks. The problem is that it happen 500 KM from my home so I have my truck at a dealer far from home. They provided a rental for me so once it is ready I will drive back to get my truck. The service people at the dealer are very helpful which is a bonusYou could always drive it until it blows and have it towed there, that will surely get you another replacement.
So you have not owned an Eco Diesel then. Check the forums and there are a lot of guys with blown Eco Diesels. Mine started with a rather minor knock. There is no comparison with a Commins. Based on what @porschai930 says it clearly is not just anything or nothing.Its simple... its not throwing any codes, no window block, no oil leaking and it starts and runs as it should. A little tick could be anything or nothing.
I am the happy owner of a 2015 ecodiesel with 90k miles on it. Im well aware of the failures.
You should definitely get a tune if you don't already have one.. especially after your warranty expires if you're worried about that.Knowing that these engines are not very reliable I'm happy that my engine blow withing a warranty. I have another 25,000 to go for warranty coverage
