'16 Ram Ecodiesel problems

Recommended Posts

Just thought I'd update on Dad's '16 1500 Ecodiesel with 75,000 miles. It's been flawless up to this point but the heater started acting up. They said the heater core was bad and despite paying for the extended warranty, it's not covered. $1,700 later and hopefully it's fixed. 

 

It also set a check engine light for a sensor in the DEF tank. Apparently the sensor can't be changed so they had to replace the entire DEF tank. It cost $950 but thankfully it was under warranty. He has liked the truck up to this point but admittedly his like has soured some from this.

Almost 3k in repairs will do that to a person. 

 

I sure like the looks of the new Ram 1500, the front end is sweet looking.

WOW! We have 3 of them at work. I guess the guys driving them like them quite a bit and the mechanics love them cuz they don't have to work on them. No issues yet. Hopefully that's all your dad will see for awhile.

Have seen several cold weather DEF issues at the dealership.

 

I wonder if that is what caused dad's DEF problem. They had that really cold spell not long ago. After that is when the heater and the DEF problems showed up.
