4th turbo on 2007.5 2500 and still in limp mode
Hopefully someone has a suggestion or an answer. We have 2500 Ram with 112,000 miles. We bought it in 2010 with 74,000 miles. This truck has been down for 8 months now. We took the truck to a diesel mechanic because it was in limp mode, he told us the EGR was total clogged. He cleaned the EGR system, then said it needed a turbo. so we replaced the turbo. The truck is still stuck in a limp mode. We cleaned the EGR system again, including both cats, still stuck in limp mode. Finally, after doing some more research, i find out the truck had never had the regeneration recall done on it. Now my truck is still at the dealership, it just had the reprogramming done and its in the limp mode STILL! The dealership told my DH, they have never heard of a diesel needing 4 turbos and only have 112,000 miles. They are at such a loss as to what is wrong, they said they are now taking parts off a "working" diesel and replaced them on my just to see if they can get things to work.
On a side note, in the last couple of weeks i pulled a carfax on this truck (which i should have done before buying it). The first turbo was replaced at 52,000 miles and then again at 64,000 miles and now again at 112,000. The dealership we got the truck from KNEW about the recall and never perform it (but they did change the oil & filer, trany flush, rotated tires and basic maintenance just not the recall. We never even received a recall notice, i just happened across it while looking for info on my trucks issue. From what i read, if the truck would have had the recall 3 years ago, we may not be in this boat now.
Now for my question, is this truck a lemon OR is it worth fighting to get it on the road? I am not sure i will ever trust this truck again. 4 turbos seems to be a lot of a truck with only 112,000 miles. Or will just doing an EGR delete solve our issues? I really like this truck but it seems to be an endless pit.
I am open to suggestions. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
