Does the different noise sound like a little chirping dog sound? I have a weird sound coming from under the the hood that sounds like a chirping dog, does it off and on, and I am thinking it might be the turbo, any ideas would be appreciated. Also, the transmission shutters from a dead stop once in a while. Took it to a repair shop to get the trans oil changed, he said his machine hooks into the bottom two radiator lines, new fluid in one line and old out the other. Said he could not pump it thru the tranny, first time he has ever ran into that. Again any ideas would be great. FYI 185K miles and first issue I have ever had.2016 ecodiesel 1500 81k under warranty
Turbo started making higher pitch and different noise. Dealer is waiting on some parts to do a turbo replacement.
Says it's best to remove cab rather than drop tyranny? Anyone go through this yet.
I fully agree -it is definitely not a stupid idea.I dont know, but if they do drop the transmission have them replace the tone wheel while they are in there!
Maybe a stupid idea, but crawl under the truck and check the flange bolts in the exhaust if a change in sound is the only sign.
Nothing surprises me.Ok so dealer got turbo replaced and noise is still there. Lol looks like you guys might be right. I sent him a screen shot of this and told them to start looking at exhaust flanges ect.
That is cool… no pun intended.
The flange bolts and the chirp is a very common problem. I am surprised by how many times the issue gets skipped in favour of turbo replacement.Ok so upshot was they replaced turbo it wasn't the problem however the sides of it where starting to show significant wear so it needed to be done. Then when the noise was still happening after turbo replacement I sent the info you guys posted regarding Def flange area and sure enough it was smoked. They replaced pump bolts gaskets ect. Turbo was under original warranty emissions under the FCA settlement. GDE since early days for me.
I kept my ECM when I bought from GDE
so I switched it out before this debacle began.
Glad to have everything back together sweet truck again. 2016 ecodiesel bighorn quad cab
