You love the diesel! No one hates on something this much without having envy.If I thought that a 3.0L diesel was better, I would have waited and bought a 2020, but it is not better, the use case does not match, I want nothing else to do with diesel emissions systems or the maintenance and that is why a 3.0L diesel is not in my Rubicon, not because it was not available in a 2019.
So they’re willing to cover emissions components for an extra 64,000 miles for how much money?I was told lifetime no longer offered and hadn’t been for a longtime. I read others claiming that exists. Regardless, they were talking 100k. Told me just to keep extending prior to expiration. IDK how accurate that is.
EPA cracked down on the tuner companies. There is not likely to be a tune.There will be multiple companies with ECU tunes allowing for deletes before the end of the year, barring a long term/complete meltdown of the world economy. There are other threads here discussing the companies which are already hard at work to supply the tunes. The quest is for better engine longevity, better mpg, better fuel range, better reliability, better exhaust sound or whatever combination therein which the individual desires.
On the gen2 Ecodiesel Ram forum, GDE announced they will be releasing an epa-compliant tune for the Ram. I’ll try finding that message thread and post a link in this one. From memory I believe they said most of the running quality benefits would be there (like their original tune) but they can’t turn off the egr of course. They say their tune produces much less soot than fca’s gen2 tune, so although egr is still active, it’s not as bad as factory in that less soot is being produced, etc.EPA cracked down on the tuner companies. There is not likely to be a tune.
Yes, I agree. There may be tunes but definitely no deletes.Let me restate. There is not likely to be a tune that deletes egr, dpf, and urea which are three of the least reliable and most expensive parts of the engine to fix. The fuel system is also on that list but you cannot delete that. Fuel system replacement is probably more expensive than replacing a 3.6l engine.
Your experiences are hearsay not known facts that YOU have experienced. Do you really think you get all the facts from reading what someone else that knows very little or nothing about the issue writes. I work on these systems EVERYDAY and I am still learning but I do know crap when I read it.Just passing on my experiences with modern diesels so that the unknowing gets a glimpse into what they will typically face. I have owned them and will not own another. There is a reason that a 3.6L is under the hood of my Rubicon and not a 3.0L and the cost difference has nothing to do with it.
The fact that FCA does not offer an extended warranty on the emissions and everyone's answer to the potential issues with the emissions is "just delete them" speaks volumes about the 3.0L and modern diesels in general.
