I'd hope replacing half your engine would do something!

I hope it all goes well for you. I always get nervous when other people have to work on my vehicles.

Well so far so good in the 15 miles I have driven it. Everything went well except they broke off one of the mounting bolts for the turbo. Runs fine.

Re: New TSB 009-006-15

Question is, should those that haven't been really having symptoms get this done? Just lie to the dealership and say you've been having problems?

I don't know if replacing the heads right now will save future problems. For example, am I 100% going to have a problem down the road when the truck gets older? Or maybe and we just don't know?

Re: New TSB 009-006-15

I think it's too soon at this point to know if it'll affect all engines. There are a few influencing factors, driving style to name the big one.

I wouldn't jump to have this done just yet. I'd wait it out to closer to the end of the warranty period and we'll have a much better picture when more ecodiesels rack up the miles.

Re: New TSB 009-006-15

Been having this same issue as well. I had to find this TSB and give it to my dealer so they would start the repair. I took the Jeep in yesterday and apparently the parts are on back order (what a shock). I called CCC and they are putting everything on expedite but I am still looking at 5-7 business days best case for them to arrive and then I bet it will be another 2-3 days to complete the repair. I don't have a lot of confidence that in the repair team over there either since it took 3 trips to get the Cat replaced and they put the wrong oil in the engine twice. I think I may need to throw in the towel, get the dealer to take this thing off my hands and move on. This is the 12th trip to the service department in 18 months and I am not even at 20k. I am just so done with this thing.

Re: New TSB 009-006-15

I got the cat replaced a few weeks ago and that seemed to fix the mil light issue so far but the shudder still occurs every now and then. I saw this bulletin and it describes exactly when it happens except have not noticed it on warm up. Like some others I am hesitant to have such major work done? Called dealer and waiting to hear back on parts.

Re: New TSB 009-006-15

Mine just started surgery today. Should be out by Thursday afternoon. Rumor on some other sites is that the replacement cylinder heads being put in have a slightly different design that supposedly prevents soot build up in the valves which supposedly is the problem. However, I also had the dealer put the wrong low ash motor oil in the first 2 oil changes, so perhaps I was destined to have this issue regardless. I also heard one of the recent software updates changed some of the mechanics to try and prevent soot build up. Perhaps that may help some people. I imagine working the engine hard and hot with towing and such may help keep the build up from happening too.

But if Chrysler is for once owning up to an issue that can't be solved via software updates, I figured I might as well get it replaced before they change their mind or issue a recall that creates a huge run on parts like the Cat issue did. Plus it's no money out of my pocket, so let them deal with it now while its still under factory warranty is my view.

Re: New TSB 009-006-15

I've been experiencing this problem over the past two weeks. Like everyone else, I'm not too excited about having this much work done on the engine. Since I haven't had the cat replaced, I wonder if I can get some type of package deal??

Re: New TSB 009-006-15

I have been very satisfied with the fix thus far (now about 400 miles), have not experienced any of the previous issues. My millage has come back to about 23 in town, it was down to about 19. I will be making my first tow this weekend with the fix, I hope it all stays together.

Re: New TSB 009-006-15

Update: I went over to the dealership on Friday to "discuss" my recent issues with the Jeep and this repair process. They have had my vehicle now for 2 weeks and work has stalled. The dealer does not have the tools to complete the cylinder head replacement on hand so they had to order them from Chrysler and wait for them to arrive.

The service rep I have been working with, who seems to be trying to do his best to help me, took me out to the back to show me what's going on. The engine was completely torn apart and the cylinder heads were exposed. Inside each hole was 2-3 mm of caked on carbon dust. There was no doubt that they needed replacement and that it was causing the issue. I took two photos in case anyone wants to see what the engine tear down looks like. It was kind of hard to get a good photo of the carbon build up though.

I am guessing that at some point there will be a lot more of these things going in for this repair job. Chrysler has jerryrigged this Italian engine with so much emissions crap it wasn't designed for, its bound to have issues long term. At this point, I am done with this engine and gunning for a buyback. It was clear that the service techs at the dealership have no idea how to tear the Jeep down to do the head replacement, much less put it back together properly without further issue. I just have no confidence that it will work properly after this is complete. Maybe I am wrong, but this repair just seems inevitable on all the diesels given the emissions system.

You would think you'd just be able to enjoy your "premium" upgrade of a diesel powertrain for several hundred thousand miles without repair. Unfortunately, EGR just doesn't play nice. Even with the new exhaust valve design, everything else will get crude up after 60k-100k depending on how you drive it. It will eventually require a teardown and clean out to get it back and running efficiently again.

An ecodiesel (or most modern diesel) owner's best bet is to disable the EGR from day one. AND, running a catch can helps keep the buildup down a bit too.
