Go Small? Common Problems With the Ram 3.0L EcoDiesel V6

Ram’s 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 had no competition with the introduction of the economical engine in 2014. Since that time, a number of problems have shown up, partially due to the advertised 12,560 lbs towing capacity. The added stress of extreme towing causes the engine to heat up. This leads to numerous components ultimately failing. Let’s take a look at these Ram 3.0-liter EcoDiesel issues. 

A lot of problems identified have been resolved by design changes, warranties, or outright recalls. Most of the issues revolve around the 2014 and 2015 model years. The EcoBoost saw some revisions in 2016. This took care of many issues.
