Exhaust Leak

I just had my turbo replaced and then a really bad exhaust leak / smell was evident in the cab. Very weird situation, but it was intermittent in the cab. Why, I don't know.

I took it back to the dealer a few times, but they obviously spent about 5 minutes with it and could not find anything.

I found that the EGR pressure tube (very thin tube that comes out of the exhaust manifold and goes to the thermostat housing) had a small hole in it.


I took it back, showed the dealer, and they ordered the part..............but it is on BACKORDER!!

So I guess I have to huff fumes until the freakin' thing comes in.

Just sucks that they repeatedly said they can't find anything wrong.

I said that you can smell it in the cab, you can hear an exhaust leak under acceleration and with the exhaust brake on, you can smell exhaust in the wheel well..........and if that wasn't enough, you can smell it if you pop the dang hood!

One day at lunch, I was so upset, I went out with a light and a mirror to investigate. Within 5 minutes I found the leak!


I'm thinking of calling Chrysler this week as the fumes can be real, real bad at times. No way are the kids going in there until it is fixed. And with it raining and getting cold here, I can't keep riding around with all of the windows down!

EGR pressure tube made it to the dealer. Now I just have to schedule an appointment. Really tired of huffing exhaust fumes!

Finalllllllllllly got it into the shop today and had the EGR tube replaced. I also had them check the coolant as it seems to be using a little bit. Obviously that checked out 'just fine.'



Buuuuuuuuut, when I was picking it up, I had looked past the grease on the hood, fenders, steering wheel, and door panel, and really was upset at the large streak of dirtiness on the top of the front bumper (painted portion of the bumper). Soooo, I took a closer look to find out they scratched the hell out of the leading edge of that piece!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was just before closing time and I went off on the service guy. He tried to act cool and rub off the dirt with 3M hand glaze and then ask if I was satisfied. I just said no. Glaze is glaze, and it does not take out the damn scratches. Now I have to go back and talk to the service manager. This whole thing freakin' sux!
