Can you explain your reasoning behind this?

No reason really just a feeling.
I just think the engine might be under to much stress with the tune .
That's just my opinion.

I had two tunes done to my jk diesel the first one was way over fueling.
Too much fuel I have heard is bad for diesels.

Then I got the other tune done from a different guy. He told me the first guy didn't delete the egr like he said and it did run alot better and harder.the second tune.

But even after the second tune it was never as smooth as not having a tune at all .
I don't have a lot of faith in them

So to all the people who think they have the egr delete. Do you really know it has. As I thought it was.

Let's wait for a few more more details of actual failures before we start hypothesising.

Which is the whole point of the thread, to compare actual information

I think we're going to want 8-10 failures before we can decide something is a trend.

I have also added a request for aftermarket transmission cooler information to the original questions

#3 seems to be the common failure point.

Hey guys, anyone else with failure details to add?

If you know someone who's had a failure, please point them in this direction.

It would be good to get a decent list going.

Thanks

I was really hoping we'd get a lot more replies to this...

It's always touted as a big deal but only a few people have actually populated their details.

Another question I was thinking, "was the Jeep on cruise control when the failure occurred or was it on cruise for any significant duration before the failure".

I've noticed my CRD will hold the gear and 'lug' a lot longer on cruise, which certainly feels like the engine is labouring a lot more
