The EcoDiesel Recall & the Bullet Proof Diesel Solution

We’ve recently been in contact with concerned owners of 3.0L EcoDiesel vehicles (found in offerings from both Ram and Jeep).  It seems many were served with a recall notice in late October 2019. The recall relates to the engine’s EGR cooler - apparently it can develop ‘microscopic cracks’ that allow pre-heated vaporized coolant into the EGR system.  This can apparently lead to concerns of fires starting within the intake manifold.

Owning a vehicle that is part of a major recall effort isn’t fun, but this part is even worse: Fiat Chrysler America (FCA) indicates that the remedy is ‘still under development’ - even though the listed recall date, December 13th, has arrived.

FCA has advised EcoDiesel owners to monitor their coolant levels, but beyond that, the vehicle owners haven’t received much guidance.  Obviously, this is leading to a lot of worry and anger about the engines, and that’s understandable.

For those EcoDiesel owners who seemingly have no real solution at the present, we’d like to offer up the BulletProof EGR Cooler for most versions of the engine (2014 to present).  Completely built at our facility in Arizona, featuring a lifetime parts-only warranty, and in most cases less expensive than the stock replacement, the BulletProof EGR cooler is providing a more permanent solution for EcoDiesel owners.

The BulletProof EGR Cooler for the 3.0L EcoDiesel features our patented, exclusive H-Core technology, which is really the key when it comes to EGR cooler survivability.  To put it simply, the braided tubes inside the EGR cooler have the ability to flex and expand without tearing apart the unit, as OE designs do. And it works. This technology has solved recurring  problems with International, Ford Power Stroke, Cummins, and other makes of EGR cooler. It’s only fair that the EcoDiesel gets its due!

Don’t let the uncertainty of a recall keep your truck off the road!  You can have the BulletProof solution today, with better product support, real answers, and genuine reliability.

Our BulletProof EcoDiesel EGR Cooler replaces OEM part number 68239570AC.
The recall notice from the NHTSA is below.  Notice that it states "Owners will receive a second notice when the remedy becomes available."  We have to imagine that many EcoDiesel owners won't be happy with that sentence, as it suggests there's no effective way to deal with the problem from dealerships.  There is, however, a path to reliability.  Our H-Core -equipped BulletProof EGR Cooler for the EcoDiesel can get you back on the road and provide better piece of mind than waiting for that second recall notice.
