I've had my 07 6.7 in the shop 6 times now for the P2262 (2 mobile desoots, 1 new turbo, 3 turbo cleanings). This last trip, which was a final repair attempt by dodge before it's a lemon, was pitiful. All they did was 3 cans of turbo cleaner and a new ECM update. The downside, the ECM update that is supposed to control the soot problem was a MAJOR loss of power in my truck. I'm not sure if everyone is having this experience, but my truck drives awful. This seems like a bandaid for the problem because no one at chrysler seems to fully understand the problem. I know they will eventually get all these issues worked out, but it's pretty crappy that a lot of people are getting the shaft. Anybody else having any issues/stories with the P2262 code, feel free to share.

Get that thing lemoned. You are 100% right on with your assessment of the situation. Some dont have the issue, others do. The only solution they have is cleaning the turbo as well as flashes that turn the engine down so that you produce less soot. Best of luck to ya.

Do you know which flash you got? I've had one 2262 at 6800 miles, and I got a new turbo. I supposedly got the latest flash then, and I thought the power was reduced afterwards too, but not as badly as you describe.

Have you had the excessive 'Oil Change Required' messages? I get one about every 2200 miles give or take. I changed it at 2800, but my dealer just reset it at 4800 without changing it. I read somewhere that the soot in the oil is contributing to the problem with the oil cooled turbo.

That could be bull though...

I'm right behind ya. Just finished up my 4th P2262 visit resulting in the coveted drilling and tapping of the turbo. Also have had the flashes, updates, TSBs, ECMs, CCVs and every other acronym Dodge can throw at it. Oh yeah, almost forgot the most ridiculous thing; the insane discussions with my advisor telling me how to drive this thing. In the 10K miles I've had it, I've driven it every way you can and the results have been the same.

But, I'm doing everything I have to do to fulfill the lemon law parameters or build my case for a buy back. I inquired about the lemon law with a lawyer now the only bad thing is they won't leave me alone while I let Chrysler do their thing. But they said I have a case so we'll see.

Hey flattman.
While you are in discussions with your lawyer, ask about a class action against Dodge and the EPA. There are so many problems and the fuel economy is not what it could be that if enough people would sign up and get a class action started maybe we could actually get the problem resolved?

I wrote this in another thread...isn't it interesting how Cummins/Chrysler felt compelled to spend the money to put a sensor and the corresponding computer coding into our trucks...for a problem that they did not know existed? Gee, last time I checked, finance pretty much puts a kabosh on anything that engineering or marketing cannot prove adds to the value of the vehicle.

My truck has been in the shop 22 times. Three weeks ago I was told that a Chrysler engineer wanted to take a look at my truck later that week as the dealer had two others in with the same problem (P2000 codes). Two weeks later - still no engineer.
I was offered an 08 (msrp for msrp) but I would have to pay $0.30 per mile for nearly 12,000 miles even though my first CEL happened at 2250 miles. I would also have to eat the tag, title & tax for my 07 plus pay the $1,800 again on the new one. That's around $7,500 for a truck that won't stay out of the shop. Oh yea, when the Chrysler rep made the offer he told me that I wasn't driving the truck right and that I was letting it idle too much. What a way to do business and treat a customer!

vaokie, maybe you should try another shop. I've been working on these since they came out. little bit of a nightmare. pull the O2 sensors and clean the soot (blow with compressed air and wipe off with clean rag) , verify flash level(AX), P2000 is taken care of. Cummins has a new (another) flash coming out for the early 6.7s to address this code. Or just let them keep "trying"

Mine also got the p2262 code last week. All they did was update the flash to the AQ. I hope this isnt the beginning of a nightmare like the rest of you guys.

just took delivery of my new truck. this time i opted for the auto tranny. and may i say this thing rocks! i ended up only paying a $350 mileage charge for the miles up until my first problem. i walked out the door only paying for the diff in msrp and the miles. (3391.02) thatll work for me. if ur goin thru this process, dont get irate with the chrysler reps just be patient and let them do their jobs. it took a month of sweet talkin and bein nice to get that deal. im happy as a tick!!! i didnt even need a lawyer, just told them i had one!

I've had problems since day one aug 07 they replaced the dpf and i still had problems (limp mode) so i removed the dpf and run home brew b100 with little or no problems mpg went from 12 to 17 mpg. Its quick as a lamborgini. its a hell of a note to have to do this %#$#but i hear dodge is buying a lot of them back. I have 40,000 miles now and my 07 3500 6.7 but i still love my 97 5.9 more it gets 28 mpg. i really want dodge to buy it back anyone else going through this?

Who do you contact at Chrysler to discuss these options. I am at 8700 miles and I am starting to get the P2262 pretty regular and there going to start by cleaning. If I enter into the cleaning and replacing turbo cycle I am gonna lemon it or have them buy it back and go get a Dmax.

I bought mine pre-owned and it already showed the CEL three times in 2000 miles. I am kind of beginning to wonder if this truck was one of the ones they bought back and resold in the market....:CRY:

How much is the mileage fee? When I decide to make them buy my truck back I am going to bill them for R&D! I think between thier fee and my fee would should be about even!!!
