Yup, entire cap. How many miles? If under warranty, cut the seal then tell em you have a CEL. Not serious. Or am I?
You have a faulty blower motor resistor. Same problem has been happening to a few others over on the Srinter Source forums.I just picked up a 2017 that had 1,100 miles on it and drove it home to St. Augustine, FL from New Jersey. The van was flawless on the ride home. A couple of days ago I noticed that the HVAC blower fan stays on with the van off and the key out of the ignition. Whatever the fan speed dial is set at when you shut off the van is how fast it blows. It doesn't have dual zone automatic climate control so I don't believe it has the function that will turn on the blower fan for 30 min. to circulate air. I've taken to making sure the dial is set to 0 before I shut the van off because the fan will just continue to blow. I let the fan blow for about 2 hours the other day. I checked on it every 15 min. and it never shut off for the entire 2 hours. Has anyone else experienced this. Could this be a bad blower motor or regulator or some climate control software issue? It's going to the dealer for this but that's a chore in of itself (either 40 minutes north to Jacksonville or 60 minutes south to Daytona). I was hoping to have some info to help their tech diagnose the problem if they hadn't run across it before.
Is there an easy fix for the exhaust rattle in the 2017 Passenger? Seems to get going around 1800 RPM, over a band of perhaps 200 RMP. Sounds to me like the hanger issue that has been mentioned allowing the exhaust to make direct contact with the body. I have not seen mention of a fix on this forum. When I mentioned the issue to dealer, dealer claimed noise came from cracked fairing underneath - a part that they did not have in stock at the time I visited dealer. I have not yet seen which fairing they might be talking about....I'm semi hesitant to create this thread because I don't want to create hysteria but I did want to spread what I've seen so far:
Blank instrument cluster. Resulted in removing the cluster and doing a hard reset. All good. roughly 40 miles or so
Coolant hose at overflow bottle loose. Coolant low light on. Could have snapped it back in, we replaced it for good measure. Topped coolant. Shipped
Various CEL for gross evap leak. There's a hose on the driver side under some stuff (I honestly don't know exactly where it is). Just needed reattaching. Cleared codes and shipped.
Mine: Third row seat squeak. It was trying to tell me to go postal. We lined the latches with felt tape instead. The voices from the van went away.
Blind spot Assist inop (Also on mine): Connected SDS, cleared codes. I've put 20 or so miles since. All good.
Read about heat shields on a cargo loose. Retightened at dealer. All good.
Feel free to add any topics that come up.
You are one loyal individual. I mighta put Phantom 135 down after the first turbo . . . . OTOH, I can hear myself, "But the bottom end is still rock solid . . . !" Anyway, ouch and congratulations!This van is used for 600 mile day trips that are mostly highway.
Bought it brand new in December 2015.
Tough to say when the first turbo went out because it is a gradual process of the turbo vanes losing diameter.
It also has eaten injectors.
It has been in the shop so much since 150,000 miles trying to figure out running issues that I've forgotten mileages and timelines for repairs.
As of now the shop says it needs a new transmission control plate(shifting issues and errors) and oil pressure sending unit.
After those are done it will probably need another turbo as well. It doesn't build boost so I just use it for local low speed errand running.
Would love to find a shop that could fix it. Even the dealer was worthless to figure out what is wrong with it.
Followed the service schedule on the computer which has been every 15,000 miles for A and B services. So 15,000 mile oil changes.
Edit: transmission was in the high 200k mile range.
I hope Chillis comes back and answer this. I'm glad many are way out front with their 2016 Cargo Vans miles...it's almost like 'seeing the future'. Definitely would like to know what kind of weight he's hauling on average.Chillis, what are you hauling? Those kind of miles are like over the road truck miles. Also, how heavy are the loads? Thanks.
