I have a 2010 w 6.7 that has just over 10,000 miles on it. On Sunday at the very end of a 2 hour trip, I noticed a slight vibration in the truck. Especially when sitting at idle, you can feel it in the steering wheel. To me it is very noticible as I'm used to driving it. Other than the vibration, the truck seems to run normal. Dodge dealer looked at it and couldnt find the problem. They called tech support, and they had nothing either. I was told that is how the truck operates, and nothing could be done. Of course I told them it has not had this vibration at all until now so that was not an acceptable answer. They said they would explain that to support and let me know what the find out.
Has anyone ever had this problem or heard of it? I have searched online, but havent found anything similar.
Do you feel a vibration at all when driving as well?
You can feel it ever so slightly when driving, but not to bad. It's most notable when sitting at a stop light. In gear or in park is the same. I asked my wife to drive it last night and she asked if it was running rough? Even though it is running normal, the vibration gives you the impression of a rough idle. Earlier I described it as being in the wheel, as you feel it instantly when holding the wheel, but it is in the enire truck. Seats, floor, you feel it everywhere. Not horrible, but irritating, especially considering it's a new vehicle and not a worn out farm truck. I'm wondering if there is possibly a broken motor or trans mount? It just feels like whatever should be dampening the engine vibration in the cab is not working. I opened the hood, and don't see any engine movement though. And the truck has never done any hard duty to cause motor mount damage. It's hardest day is pulling my 8K camper.
I decided to pick it up from the dealer last night and just drive it a few days and see if it gets worse. The service ticket said " Found no vibration, unable to duplicate." So the dealer doesnt even acknowledge the problem. I'm thinking about going to the sales side and get the keys to a new truck and do a side by side test and see if someone will be able to recognize what I'm talking about. I completely get this is a big diesel truck, however the first 10k miles where fine. This vibration developed recently, and there is no possible way I would have driven the past 10k without noticing it before.

I just recently experienced something similar. I went to leave work and had the truck idle roughly, very noticably. Even while driving slowly through parking lot. Got home and it was still rough at idle. Check DTC thru MM and found these to codes
P020B - fuel Inj. 2 Performance
P0692 - fan 1 control Circuit High
Cleared them and no more sign of it since Tuesday.
Currently have 15k.

I've got 38,000 kms on my 2010 and it's had a rougher idle the last 10,000 kms. It's a touch more noticeable when I fast idle the truck. It's a weird vibration. It doesn't quite line up with the motor rpms. Seems a bit more intermittent. It's so minor though, it seems normal to me now.

I have a 2011 3500 4x4 diesel same thing. with 11000 kilometers . vibrates so bad that my loose change in the centre counsell rattles around. hands go numb at 70 kilometers an hour is the worst. on the throddle off the throddle no matter what gear your in, been to the dealer 3 times . dealer has new front drive shaft, new rear drive shaft ,new steadty bearings,new rims and tires and still vibrates.dealer keep changing parts and cant seem to find the problem. i believe that it is the tourge convertor. it vibrates and an idle stopped.
I've also noticed a similar vibration, although slight and intermittent, developed around 10,000-11,000 miles. Mostly at idle and when driving slowly in a parking lot. I've just dismissed it as a vibration in the dash or something. I'm gonna be changing out the fuel filter like ol' dude suggested above, and see what that does. I wanted to change it at my first oil change, but the service manager at my dealership told me that it didn't need changing until around 24,000 miles. Whatever, I've always liked to change fuel filters at every oilchange. Guess I should just stick to my old habits. Thanks guys.
