I got this recall notice on my gasbuddy app. Has anyone else heard anything about this? EDIT: I just seen a previous post about this. So a full blown recall, or a warranty extension like the tone wheel?

I find it interesting that NHTSA is more worried about the HPFP causing an unexpected loss of drive power, increasing the risk of a crash than the engine itself! I would put money on it that there are way more engine failures than CP4 pump failures!
This is so true. The CP4 failures are low on the ecodiesel platform. Main bearings let go way more often. Good news for GDE customers, we turned off CCP mode in CP4 software logic as it seemed to be the big driver for pump failures on other applications. CCP is a method of controlling fuel pressure, but leads to frequency issues inside the pump leading to vibration and pulsations in the plunger bore. It was a bad idea Bosch sold to all CP4 customers.

@biodiesel:
Where is this dealership because none of those around me have a clue when it comes to EcoD's?
Farmington, New Mexico. Although, there's a designated EcoDiesel tech at one of the dealers in Albuquerque, too. Both techs know these engines like the back of their hand. When I go into the shop, they usually have 2 - 3 EcoDiesel vehicles on the lift at any given time. Interestingly, both techs like working on the engine and have mostly good things to say about the platform.

Seems as though Cummins more industrial applications are all low HP. The 2.8 duramax is 26% less displacement, I’d bet they could easily get it to numbers that would work. Also feeding 2 less cylinders I’d think economy would be better.
I looked at the Colorado diesel. EPA numbers are about the same as ours, or at least were in 2017 models. IIRC, that engine also uses a Bosch CP4.

From what we could tell in the VW applications, there appears to be at least 4 generations of the Bosch CP4x pump. The assumptions were that Bosch changed the internal coatings to try to find something that held up better to the crappy US fuel.

Yet another reason I love my GDE tune. Appreciate the info - didn't know that feature was part of the tune but I'm very glad it is. Two thumbs up (y)(y)

Anyone want some parts from a 2014 ecodiesel? Mine just disintegrated this morning when it read the recall news.

I just received this email this morning. Probably for my old 2015 (2014-2019) but we'll see if it gets expanded. It' currently doesn't apply to my 2020 VIN.

Wonder if this means that since it’s being recalled if anyone has a failure is it now covered by some form of recall? Makes keeping it a little easier knowing one of the largest cost failures is under some form or fashion of warranty.

Hi: MAS... Wonder if "They" could recall the price of fuel? I recall when I could afford to go somewhere!!!
