Two weeks later I have her back. 2020 EcoDiesel with 5,500 on the clock. Injector rusted to the head and timing cover spittin' oil on the driveway. Hey, at least mine hasn't blown up yet and the EGR valve hasn't gotten stuck open like the guys on the FB group page! Fingers crossed I make it another 5,000! :)

Nice to see it back in action! I don’t have FB...do you mind summarizing the cases they’ve been dealing with?

Usually occurs on a cold startup, error code is P26FB- EGR valve stuck closed. Is this similar to what is on the facebook group? There is no known fix to it according to FCA

What I've seen so far after browsing owner groups for a few months:

-EGR valve gets stuck open
-Throttle control throws CEL
-Dead throttle pedal momentarily when trying to make a left hand turn
-Leaks at the CAC pipes
-Leaks at the timing cover
-At least one totally blown engine with 3,100 miles on it

Keep in mind this engine has been on the road for less than a year. Not a good sign.
