I don't see that I have any other choice than to drive until they get to me ? You just said they would replace it to hold you over till the new one came out ? ..And...If the EGR cooler isn't the cause of the coolant loss, then I would have to pay for it.... So if they had the new part and you had another problem you wouldn't have to pay for it ? Are you still under any warranty ?I just got through talking to two dealers and FCA twice. They all tell me that the EGR coolers are allocated at 1 per week to each dealer. I am on a waiting list and they can't tell me how long it will be except that there are many ahead of me. When informed that my truck is losing coolant, they suggest that I have it diagnosed by the dealer. If the diagnosed cause is the EGR cooler, they will replace it with the old version until the new ones are available. If the EGR cooler isn't the cause of the coolant loss, then I would have to pay for it.
I don't see that I have any other choice than to drive until they get to me. I'm finally beginning to see why so many forum members are fed up with FCA. It's too bad, as I love this truck, but I think it's time to move on.
