Default check engine light? factory warrant?

i have a 2006 5.7 big horn edition and my check engine light went on today, truck as about 75,850 and i was wondering is there any kind of factory warranty under 80k even though i didn't purchase any kind of warranty for the truck?

i took it to a friend of mines and he did a diagnostics check and he said it might have something to do with the egr valve or something.

will the dealership cover this under warranty?

I posted in your other thread, but are you the original owner of the truck?

Not covered by warranty. Normally, the code indicates an egr sensor or egr valve failure.

I would have to say given the age and mileage of the vehicle, this isn't covered. Now you can purchase additional warranties, however, the higher the mileage, usually the higher the cost for the warranty. There are many warranty companies out there, your insurance company usually offers extended programs as well as any Dodge dealer. Best of luck.
