Recall Notice: Dodge Recalls 186,000 Ram Heavy Duty Models With Cummins Turbo Diesel


Chrysler has announced that it is recalling a total of 186,099 Heavy-Duty Dodge Ram trucks. All of the vehicles in question are 2007-09 models and all are powered by the 6.7-liter Cummins turbo diesel. The recall is actually related to the engine itself specifically revolving around tuning and emissions. A trouble code in the EMS system can trigger a check engine light, which can cause the fuel mixture to be enriched, resulting in black soot from the exhaust system and potential damage to the turbocharger and Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve.

To fix the problem, Chrysler will re-flash the engine computer, though customers who own one of the trucks in California, will have to submit proof of the repairs to the Department of Motor Vehicles before they can renew their registrations a result of the Golden State's strict emissions laws. Owners with questions or concerns are encouraged to contact Chrysler at 800-853-1403.

How many people think they try to get you to flash the computer, so that an aftermarket programmer wont work?? Or am I already late on this one??

Sounds like the J35 Recall thats been out for a month or so....

Also, the only way to make the ECM locked so a programmer won't work on it is to replace it..

why do you want it done its really for emissions only their is no need to get it done imo because you dont care about warranty. and it is said by some that the power may be decreased with this flash to help with a sooting problem

Well I really dont want to get it done but I have been tripping a code and the perform service message comes on on the overhead so I was thinking hat maybe the problem, so just trying to figure my truck out, but honestly, the dealer is the last place that i want to take my truck....

Truthfully I just wouldnt make a scene with rollin coal everywhere, and put the stock stuff on and get it through emissions, then take it back off.
