2015 Ram 2500 Long bed Crew cab Cummins. I got the truck in 2017 with 70,000 miles and now at 98,000.
Have always wanted a Cummins and the truck is awesome.
Just got the P003A and P00AF codes.
Wasn't worried as truck was still under 5 year power-train warranty.
Wrong! Dealer diagnosed as faulty turbo actuator.
Since it's not oil lubricated it's not covered under power train warranty.
Nice huh. Only $4000 for them to replace turbo actuator.
So after doing some research I started driving the truck like I stole it and exercising exhaust brake to clean soot from VGT turbo.
All seems fine now, all codes cleared and not coming back, and exhaust brake will make 150 hp without trailer.
Now, hopefully, I understand how to operate truck, but I need to do EGR delete to help prevent VGT issues in the future.
Hoping to find right tuner here as it seems not many offer the 2013-2019 delete kits anymore.
Any suggestions for choices?
