Re: green diesel engineering tune

The tune makes it almost a changed vehicle. I foresee a difficulty that has perplexed many other drivers - it is fun to drive again, it is nigh on impossible to keep your foot out of the throttle! Minimal lag time, the engine now pulls in 8th gear with regularity, fuel economy is up noticeably higher. Dragging a trailer this coming Friday and will get the opportunity to test out the engine braking. I believe it to be a worthwhile investment.

Re: green diesel engineering tune

GDE. Would the temperature sensor still be live and a potential fault for this code? I noticed the cable from the sensor was chafing from being sandwiched between the adjacent loom of cables and a tab protruding from the fuse box. Appears to be a poor routing from the factory and may be the cause of a short. Moving the wire and clearing the code appears to have stopped the issue.

Unfortunately if I go to the dealer under warranty they will re-flash with updates which will then need to be returned to GDE for an update/swap which is just as much as the part. Might just repair with some heat shrink and see how it goes.

I got the pedalbox in last week and, while it dramatically increases throttle response while moving along, it does nothing for off the line acceleration. I was hoping that the lag off the line was due to a built-in delayed throttle, but it must be the turbo taking it's sweet time to spool up.

TLDR; I'm sending back the pedalbox and will wait until my warranty expires to get a GDE tune. Maybe by that time there will be a flash tool.

Re: green diesel engineering tune

just installed mine today after doing the recall last week and being told my 2015 wouldn't be getting the rotella/reflash tsb. These guys are mental, I had it in my hands nearly 24 hours after ordering. (ecu swap option btw)

Other than being upset that I didn't do this 30 thousand miles ago and before the price went up 100$...its pretty awesome. some standouts I noticed (other than turbo lag which everyone has mentioned) :

-low speed tip-in feels much better. stopped->1st, 1st->2nd and on/off throttle transitions always felt really...vague to me at parking lot speeds. maybe this is a result of the turbo lag being improved?

-gear holding at medium speeds (30-50 ish mph): no longer needs to drop two gears to pass someone at a moderate speed(not stomping on it).

-upshifts at the correct rpm: might not be using the right terminology here, but before it really liked to hang onto gears for dear life and not upshift until you let off the throttle. ie: traveling at 50 mph absolutely constant throttle it would hang onto 7th even in eco mode until I let off the gas

real world mpg test to come, I'll be driving about 1800 miles next week with my bike (hitch carrier) onboard.

Also, I cannot get the oil gauge reset to save my life. Had this problem last time I got my oil changed at the dealer (3 techs and half an hour to get it reset), and now I'm having the same problem after trying every method for every similar vehicle I can find and none seem to work.

Re: green diesel engineering tune

The best way to reset the oil life on the diesel is:

Key to RUN position (don't press brake, hit start button 2x)
Press accelerator pedal to the floor "slowly" 3x
Wait 10-15sec without touching anything and key still in the run position

Afterwards the oil life will be reset. Generally it's the last step that gets owners, either they key back off or start the engine - both of which will cancel the oil life reset request.

no dice. I watched my dealer use that same sequence successfully on other GCs, but it just plain doesn't work on mine.

They had it in the back for half an hour last time, I have no idea how they finally got it reset.


ok finally got it. the trick was apparently to press the gas pedal very quickly 3 times, before my seat was even done adjusting. Everyone else has been saying slowly.

What I recall is that it has to be done 3 times within 10 seconds after turning the ignition to "on" (not start). If it's done too fast, there is a risk that the pedal doesn't go all the way down and then all the way back up again, which is likely the key.

Re: green diesel engineering tune

If I plan to do the deletes, the GDE Tune should take care of the system correct in by-passing all the deletes?

I'm probably close to ordering a '17 CRD and interested in this tune. Can someone tell me what the above comment means? I'm trying to figure out how to keep the tune from being detected and losing my warranty or losing the tune to dealer reflash.

Also is there anywhere that explains all the acronyms and what they are? I think a TSB is probably a technical service bulletin but don't really know what that entails or what the other acronyms mean.

If I buy another ecm to insert when I go to the dealer to save my GDE tune won't I miss out on some updates that I want/need?

I think it's a $100 to get the tune updated. How often or how many times a year should you get it updated from GDE?

The comment means GDE keeps their tunes up to date with any FCA changes they feel are important enough to include in their tune. They have their ear to the ground when it comes to the necessary updates. Once you buy the tune you should probably contact GDE once or twice a year and see if it's worth getting an updated tune. You would be out the core charge for a short while so there's no downtime with your Jeep.

You don't need to keep your stock ECM, you can send it back for the core refund. Some people keep it for piece of mind, they feel better reinstalling it before any service. I take my ED in with the tune installed, specifically tell them to not update the ECM, and there are no issues, no questions asked.

An important acronym for the tune is EGR, exhaust gas recirculation. It's designed to pump exhaust gas (heavy with soot) back into the intake to reduce emissions. The GDE tune turns the EGR off so your intake doesn't get heavy carbon buildup that can damage the cylinder walls and valves.

The GDE tune changes the injection timing. This change, combined with turning off the EGR, allows the engine internals to stay much cleaner. My engine oil now looks as clean as a new gasser engine, all the way up to the 10k oil change. Not the common black ink appearance of most diesel engine oil.
