    All they need to say is that the sprocket has been redesigned will no longer slip on the cam.

    Please provide a link to where this has actually happened (aside from that one guy who was later found to be less than forthcoming). I agree it is not a good design but have never seen proof that this has ever actually failed -

    Watched a you tube video where the guy had the whole passenger head taken apart, looks like is just a press fit on the cam , I would not have a problem with that if it was pinned somehow, he had 70000 miles on it, will try to find latter when not working

    Yes, just TELL US if the cam sprocket issue has been resolved. Tell us if those new dual EGR solenoids are going to die every 15,000 miles. Tell us if the Bosch CP4 pump is being used despite it's horrendous track record. Why won't they just let people know so that the stigma surrounding this engine can die?

    As far as providing a link to where these things have actually happened, all one has to do is a simple Google search for "EcoDiesel problems" and watch your screen blow up.

    I recall a discussion we had not long ago on another forum I'm a member of where dealer employees who see these trucks daily were talking about how unreliable the EcoDiesel engine is.

    Yes we that guy has been discredited. I agree the design is bad, but have never heard of a legit case of it failing.
    Still waiting for proof -

    Rofl. How long will this last. Not hey did you fix any of the known issues with the last one.

    Oil coolers leaking coolant into oil causing bottom ends to grenade
    Cam sprokets supposedly slipping. (Issue or not putting a key in is easy insurance and gets all the complainers regarding this to stop)
    Egr clogging and causing issues
    Oil pressure numbers made up. (No actual sensor its extrapolated from engine speed, temp, load.)
    Oil pressure being low at low speeds causing early bearing wear. (Kinda like cam issue. Somewhat unproven)

    As for people being unable to tell when a Regen is running. Just listen to the engine and pay attention to it's instant mpg. It's blatantly obvious when it's dumping diesel for a regen.

    I look forward to more details from someone that isn't afraid to ask more pointed and direct questions.
