Re: EcoDiesel Exhaust Cam durability issues?
I will admit that when I first saw this video I was taken aback and I feared for the investment that I had made by purchasing the ecodiesel. With that being said I have been unable to find any other precedence of the like and this base engine, the 630, has been used since 2011 in European Jeeps, Chryslers and high performance applications for Maserati. Now, I understand that the engines do vary from the US version but they're all DOHC which means they all have the exhaust cam and hopefully this is evidence that all of our engines aren't doomed to fail in this manner. Again I know that design changes are often implemented but at the same time manufacturers don't want to spend more than they have to so hopefully they haven't made any changes to the cams and this is a fluke. Here's for hoping anyhow!
