tsb on the turbo

I have an 07 with the 6.7. I took it to our infamous dodge dealer to have them fix the EGR cooler leak while under warrenty. They called me and told me they could find nothing wrong with my truck. So I went to pick it up and they told me of 3 TSB's that had come out and one of them was on the turbo. They said the turbo had to be removed and a hole drilled in it for a plug so it could be serviced. Can anyone enlighten me on this issue. Also, I drove my truck around the block and took it right back and told them to sit in the cab and tell me what you smell. They said it smelt like burned kerosene. My response was, no s--t. Now they want it back so they can talk to the enginereers at Dodge. I showed them the soot they were looking for under the EGR cooler and they informed me that was not enough to prove it had a leak. Im am so confused.

Its the egr cooler. many of us has had the leak and smell. It doesn't take much to smell it. Find another competant mechanic to fix it or you can do it yourself, its not to hard.

The turbo plug is so they can spray a cleaner into the turbo to clean the variable vanes to free them up from sticking. Its only a temporary solution. Luckly I havn't had any turbo issues with 115k miles so no plug or cleaning been done on mine.

What does it take to remove the EGR cooler. I just read a post on here and it appers a lot of members are removing the EGR cooler among other items and it is improving their engines performance. What all needs to be done. I have 87,000 miles on mine and so far no major issues like sooting up. I plan on keeping it for a while. Any advise?

I would wait for the end of warranty, and be sure they are not going to test in your area or you will not be traveling in areas that do test like NJ, NY and California for a few. Also if you remove it, I would keep the pieces, to sell it you may have to make it legal again.
Just a thought!
