Default New to Me 2008 Ram

Hey folks. Just got rid of a 03 F250 Turbo diesel (the bad one) that was draggin me down, big time. Took a real dive on trade in but am very happy with my 92000 km 1500.
I did, however, get a check engine light the other day, had it checked and it showed an egr code. They did give me a three month powertrain warranty and it was booked to check it out but now the light has gone off. So, I cancelled. Any thoughts on this anyone? What if it is the start of an erg failure and I let the warranty run out?

My new baby!

Congrats! Nice looking truck. That code is still in the computer. The computer just didn't see the error after a few ignition cycles. You should still take it in and let them read the code and get it documented.

Good to know. Even thought he warranty may run out, you may have some options because you got it on paper.
