I believe that I have the same issue, and dropped the truck off at the dealership today. The service writer definitely smelled it, and they asked me to leave it overnight and they're going to call me in the morning. Has there been any consensus on what trucks might have this issue? Is there a range of build dates? Are they all 8 speed transmissions? Four wheel drive? Crew Cabs?

Maybe we can narrow it down a little. My truck is:
2013 Ram 1500 Outdoorsman
Cab: Crew Cab
Engine: 5.7 Liter
Transmission: 8 Speed
Drive: Four wheel drive
Heavy-Duty Transmission Oil Cooler: Yes
Build Date: ?????? (bought 1 month ago)

For those with the stinking hose issue, can you post your info as well? Maybe we'll see a trend develop.

How do you determine your build date? I'll post mine up when I figure it out.
