hello to all , I guess I missed the check in proceedure before, I have recently purchased the 2008 Ram 2500 SLT quad cab short bed with 6.7 cummins 6 speed Auto Tranny, I love the truck so far but I have concerns about the emmissions systems , I already have a check engine light on and dealer says the EGR valve is stuck open and needs replaced, is there some quick fix for the open egr valve ?? is there any harm to drive with EGR valve stuck open ?? is there any other alternatives ? any help would be appreciated.
Thank You in Advance

Hello and welcome aboard the ForumZ. Now that we have the hellos under control....let's see about your question. I have the exact same truck as you and while I love my truck and having the power of the Cummins at my disposal, I am not all too pleased with all of the emissions systems on this truck. I, too have been told that my turbo was bad and that my egr valve was stuck. In reality, all it was, was a matter of updating my software and there was a recall on my turbo that, again, just needed an update. I would start there, even including a second opinion. From that, hang tight and our Certified Chrylser Tech will chime in, if you've posted in the correct sub-catagory for our Diesels. He is quite busy, so he really tries to catch up in the technical portion of our ForumZ and not hang out so much in the "hello" section! Best of luck, keep us updated and meanwhile, do you have any pics of your beast? Talk to you soon.
