I haven't been on the boards in a while but I just had my 07.5 in the shop for 5 days after the light came on...replaced all kinds of gaskets, valves, sensors etc. Problem diagnosed as P2262:doh: One week later the lights comes back on and now my turbo has to be replaced...by the looks of other threads it may be a reoccurring problem for many. I have less than 20,000 miles on it and haven't had any problems for about 10,000 miles. The dealership that I am going to has one diesel mechanic and the service writer barely even knows what a diesel is. My question is what is the hole drilling method and what can it do or what advice can I give to them to keep this damn thing out of the shop. I own my own business and this truck is what I use and its a fight to get them to give me a loaner...:banghead:

Any help is appreciated.

I see you have the 07.5 early version of the 6.7L. There has been quite the evolution since your was built. If the dealer follows the TSB's you should be in good shape after just this trip. There is a cleaning port that was being installed on the turbos so they could spray cleaner in. The later turbos already have them. Mine has no port. There is a long list of TSB's the dealer should be putting on all at the same time. You should be getting new O2 sensors, a wrap of heat tape on the pipe around the 1st sensor and the should clean all your EGR stuff as well. Possilbe you could get a new EGR. Surely you will get the latest Flash for your ECM. There have been good reports on how that works on the 07.5's.

Depends on where you live and what your willing to put up with but I can tell you right off that one and all will say do the deletes and your problems are about over. I have had 0 problems but only at 14k on my 08 (knocking on wood) and because I live in Kalifornia I don't dare do the deletes (too wussy) so all I can hope is to run it like I stole it and keep the thing clean.

Thanks for the advice dad2bike....I will speak to them about it.

I live in CA as well and wouldn't want to do the deletes...if they are done, does it void the warranty???

Some one told me if you do the deletes the truck sends message by satellite to Chrysler and they will send some guys to bust your knee caps.

I live in CA and have had the dpf and egr deleted for over 15k miles and i would never go back. I had all kinds of CELs and needed my turbo replaced twice. Since doing the deletes my truck has been perfect.

Dodge couldnt get my truck right but H&S sure did :thumbsup:

It depends on your dealership/service department. My service department was fine with me doing the deletes. They were tired of seeing me and my truck every few weeks for CELs and turbo issues. Unfortunately they were one of the dealerships that recently closed with the Chrysler issues. :banghead:

If you have a service center with a good diesel tech they are usually understanding of the issues caused by the dpf/egr and could be more likley to over look the deletes if you need warrenty work. If you're running stacked chips, compound turbos, NOS/Meth injection and go in for a blown tranny...thats your fault.

I had the same issue with my truck. The code came up after putting just 1,200 miles on the truck. The truck had 46k when I bought it. The dealership replaced a laundry list of stuff that came out to about $6k. At least they gave me a loaner, but it didn't have brakes. Just a big potato masher.

The issue came back after just 4,000 miles. I didn't take it to the dealer that time and drove it a little harder. The code cleared itself. For the last month or so I have been living with it. Code comes. Drive a little hard, and the code goes away.

Having enough of it, I cleaned the turbo and intake myself. I left the EGR disconnected and plugged up the EGR crossover tube with a freeze plug. There was a bit of an issue with the EGR butterfly (don't remove it unless you disable the DPF regen process). The end results is the truck has never ran better.

In summary, you will keep having the 2292 code until you do something about the extra soot getting into engine and the extra fuel for the DPF regen process. You can drive it hard, and that will help, but the long term solution is as simple as just disconnecting the EGR valve and installing the DPF-R kit.

If the truck needs to be taken it in (for a real issue that is) or emissions (once a year), just reinstall the DPF, reconnect the EGR, unplug the crossover, clear the code, and no one is the wiser.


Hope this helps. :thumbsup:
