    Sounds like your EGR valve is going bad. Are you under warranty?

    EGR cooler is out I guess. At 42k is frustrating. Nothing to do with the fuel pressure deal last week. 2994 to fix that. I called FCA and said this is a emissions issue. They said its not covered and not an emissions problem. I said when I get it tested it is ,and its a direct part of the emissions equipment. I said Ive been a dodge guy for 40 years and my other car is a dodge in the garage. For a 58k sticker it should be able to go more that 42k without a 3k repair. so theres a reimbursement ID number. waiting. Ill keep you posted on this. In the mean time I can use a block off plate kit dealio and tune it out . what do you think?

    Yeah if you get a tune either from PPEI or GDE or SFT, it should turn off the EGR, and then you can block it out with a delete plate kit, but then you might as well delete the exhaust as you don’t want all that soot to build up in those filters and not be burned off. However, that all will still cost less then 3,000$ to do
