Pretty sure mine has the smell too. I'll pop the radiator cap and find out for sure. Manuf. date Feb 2013 hemi 8 speed.

I figured it was just a new truck smell but I'll see about taking it by the dealer when I get a day off if I need to.

The only unusual smell from my Hemi/8-speed was a very heavy ammonia smell from my exhaust for the first few months. It isn't as noticeable now. I haven't opened my radiator cap to see if the smell is there, but from the sounds of it I would have noticed the smell anyway. Built 04/2013.

Hmm well I took off the radiator cap and it just kind of smelled like coolant. The truck had been sitting for a several hours, does it smell worse when its still warm?

Update on mine. Dropped it off a couple weeks ago. Picked it up last week.

As per Chrysler, they have all the rubber hoses on order for my truck. Some were back-ordered, so it might be a while.

5.7 Hemi with the 8-speed

Well, I got my truck back over a week ago with all new hoses. Drove it for several days hoping it would air out but it STILL SMELLS! When hot the engine compartment still has the odor and the vents blow it into the cab.

Took back to service and was told the Chrysler engineer who is dealing with this issue is out this week. Have to wait till next week to find out what's next.

Has anyone who's had the hoses replaced had this problem? Or has it fixed it for you?

I wonder if having the cabin air filter has helped anyone?

I haven't smelled it in a few hundred miles now. Maybe the smell was because I was driving through Moore OK on IH-35.
