    Nothing like that.
    Your bad information probably stems from some of the trucks having the EGR cooler replaced by the original EGR cooler and not the new updated part to get the truck back on the road. This was happening when the recall was first announced.

    Thanks Crash68.... I actually heard this while on vacation. Ran into
    A friend of my wife who
    Is married to a mechanic at the local dealership.

    He said their service Dept had done several EGR recalls and couple have returned with issues.

    I actually had to have a “New OEM” EGR replacement about the time the RECALL came out. Was told it was not the RECALLED PART as they were not available yet.

    Now Chrysler says my truck is “NOT eligible for the RECALL PART because one has already been installed????

    So Service Advisor trying to get Chrysler to send the RECALL PART, but to no avail.

    I'm with crash on this - the mechanic must have been referring to replacements that were the same product that failed the first time.

    You may have heard it correctly but it's like the campfire game of a person saying something and pass it on and the last person hears a totally different version from what the first person said. In this case, you were the 3rd or 4th person in line.

    I have not read or heard of any case where the new cooler failed or had a problem. I have heard where it was installed wrong or a connection leaked, but that's all.
