Customer Question
Lots. All bad. 2016...

Lots. All bad. 2016 5500 w/182,000 miles. Service engine light came on weeks ago and dealership says these codes - P2459, P203F, P20EE, P24A2 and P249E. Told me I needed SCR catalyst and DEF injector replaced. I took truck to them for the work but they said that they got the wrong part from Chrysler and to come pick it back up. When I did, the "Service DEF System, See Dealer" bulletin was showing on the dash. It has since changed to threaten "5 mph Max Speed in 120 miles" and counting. Dealership seams clueless.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have the trouble code? Do you have a code reader or scan tool?

I named the only codes I'm aware of above. And no, I don't have.

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll pass this info along to the Dodge Mechanic so that he can get you a quick fix. What is the model of your '16 Dodge?

5500. (also listed above)

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

No. Farthest thing from a mechanic. Bought an extended warranty to cover myself just to find out that virtually nothing pertaining to the emissions system (the equipment that everyone is complaining about) is covered under it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

One other really odd one. I have been noticing that on occasion, the sound the engine puts out changes. It gets kind of louder. A deeper almost rumble. And when it does, I notice an exhaust smell in the cab. Through the ventilation system.
