Won't start again! Roy's auto took back, replaced rebuilt starter with New OEM, but says engine is blowing smoke, and it is BAD.

Sun Devil Auto (Ahwatukee) tows and is replacing engine with Rebuilt/used 3.6L V6 gas engine. Says unit is blown, and bad. Don't know final costs, estimating $5000.

1500 Big Horn Eco Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,000 miles

At 30,000 kilometers (approx 20,000 miles) the Ram Eco diesel engine failed. It was operating at normal highway speed (100 kms per hour - approx 62 miles per hour) It took a month for a new engine to be installed. 3,000 kms later the catalytic converter had to be replaced. Ram Chrysler's service was horrible. I was given a little crap car to drive for a month but the overall experience was disappointing. To this day, Chrysler has yet to tell me what the real issue was with the engine. It is a big secret.
