FCA has issued Campaign V16 - Emission Control System Software in response to the settlement with the US EPA. I was wondering if anyone here has taken the updated emission software and have you noticed any performance or efficiency changes to your truck.
I have done the software update, and initially didn't notice anything, but now a month out, that dead spot in acceleration from a stop seems worse, and shifting seems off at slow speeds. For what that's worth
Thanks prhoads, this is exactly what I'm looking for. It's worth alot. I wish more members would chime in.
Even though the EPA says the FCA 'fix should not' affect performance and efficiency I honestly can't see that being the case otherwise FCA would not have taken the risk of 'cheating'. For this reason, I have still not taken the software update and intend to prolong it as long as I can.
prhoads, if you're in the US, just in case you aren't aware there is a financial compensation of $990 - $3,075 and extended warranty available to you. Alot of information is available here: Add www to each line below (don't ask me why but this site won't let us post web links)
you're welcome- I don't get on here often so I hadn't seen your post. I got a new motor at 40K for a blown rod, and so I was a bit more eager to get on the emissions settlement. I have submitted all my paperwork about 6-7 weeks ago, and nothing yet....
