From the Article....Ive got a 4x2 with no problems so far... What do they mean by technical bulletin?
Zoomie, is this directed at me? If so, the answer is no. Trucks been fine. However every once-in-a-while, I do get some fumes when waiting for a light, and then I realize that it's not fumes but diesel exhaust from me! I'm not used to it, because I've never had a diesel, and then with the DEF emissions the diesel odor is so faint that it's barely noticeable that your thinking leak and not exhaust... Silly huh?! In the end, I'm just amazed at how far diesels have come (more powerful, quieter, and less odor).Do you have your truck now? Any fumes?
I agree - I tried explaining that its not an exhaust smell - more like an adhesive curing smell or something - They said we have to follow the service bulletin - I am considering contacting Ram customer service - but doubt that will get me anywhere.I have a 2WD that had the problem. It took almost 3 months to get the parts to fix it. sraab928, I don't know what kind of BS your dealer is feeding you, but the exhaust leak problem was definitely easy to detect and did not "linger" after being fixed. I had a very distinct raw diesel exhaust smell in the cab, particularly when the air was not on recircuation (ie pulling air from the outside). Since the repair, I have no longer had the issue.
From your description, it sounds like something else is going on.
As an update - I took truck back at 3800 miles now as its no better than day 1 of ownership - They claim I need to wait longer and that I haven't driven it enough (nobody wants to take my truck when we go out due to this chemical taste) - I contacted Ram Customer service and opened a case - I am now being informed it may have been caused by a dead cell in my battery (for past two weeks truck kept acting like battery was drained when trying to start) - I said this problem has existed since day one -they go on to say it may be normal due to regen and burning off protective coatings during assembly but they drive it and dont see anything wrong. I call bs as I buy a new car every year and have never had this issue before. I am getting truck back today and have two days to report back if its any better. I am wits end with this.I agree - I tried explaining that its not an exhaust smell - more like an adhesive curing smell or something - They said we have to follow the service bulletin - I am considering contacting Ram customer service - but doubt that will get me anywhere.
