I bought a new 2015 Ecodiesel six months ago and at 14,000 miles the motor has a real load knock when I was driving on highway. I had it towed to the dealer that I bought it from, and the tech said the motor is toast. Ram won't cover warranty because after doing a little research, we found out the that won't cover warranty (I bought the extended warranty) due to the wrong oil in motor. I bought the oil from other Ram dealer, gave them my VIN # and they gave us the filter and 2.5 gallons of oil. They're receipt has my VIN # on it, they gave me 15w-40 should've been 5w-30. Any advice? Lawyer up? Anyone else heard about this problem? Will different oil blow a motor in 4000 miles after change?

My 2014 Eco, does this handy dandy thing where it overheats. I'm over it and it being in the shop 2-3 times every few months. I've contacted Chrysler and at first when talking to them, I think Ok maybe I'll get somewhere! Yeah that's not happening. I was told by a Rep that they will keep in contact with the dealership and they "guarantee a certified mechanic will do the work"! So who's normally doing my work at a certified dealer! Crazy to see how many other people are having problems!
